2/12/2014 Marquette, Michigan — Luke Bryan’s “Drink a Beer” made it to the top this past week on the Country Charts across the United States of America! “Drink a Beer” is a very emotional song, and Luke Bryan dedicated the song in honor of his brother, Chris, and sister Kelly. We’re very happy to bring you music from Luke Bryan on 103-FXD in Marquette, Michigan. How do you feel about this song being up to the top? Agree or disagree?

Luke Bryan has touched a nerve with his newest single. “Drink a Beer” has given the superstar his ninth No. 1 hit.

The song is the third single from Luke Bryan’s chart-topping album ‘Crash My Party,’ which opened at No. 1 across all genres last year. Written by Jim Beavers and Chris Stapleton, the emotional ballad is a change of pace from some of his more recent up-tempo fare.

“This is the coolest sad song ever,” Luke Bryan says. “It holds a special place in my heart and I am honored the writers allowed me to record it.”

Luke Bryan debuted the song with an emotional performance at the CMA Awards that was dedicated in honor of his brother, Chris, and sister, Kelly,  who passed away in 1996 and 2007. The video for the song borrows footage from that performance.

Luke admits he still struggles with the pain of their passing. “I don’t like it,” he acknowledges. “I don’t like that my sons are missing that side of my family. But someone else is deciding things.”

The 2014 ACM Awards will air live on Sunday, April 6th, 2014 at 8PM ET on CBS Channel 3.
