Kix Brooks and American Country Countdown are on CISN Country 103.9 Edmonton and Country 105 Calgary Saturday’s 8 AM To Noon.
Dierks Bentley, Breland and Hardy Beers On Me is #1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, followed by ACC.
Beers On Me is Dierks eighteen, Hardy’s second and Breland’s first Billboard Country Airplay #1.
“I’m honored, and this latest one really is special. Beers is a true collaboration, both as songwriters and artists. It’s especially meaningful that it’s Breland’s first #1 as an artist and songwriter. Both he and Hardy bring something new and needed in country music. I am proud to have a big old hit song with them.”
“When I first moved to Nashville in August of 2020, I wouldn’t have believed a #1 song at country radio would exist in my near future. I’m so grateful to Dierks and Hardy for creating space for me on this song, and for helping make this 10-year town a two-year one. Beers on Me is the type of collaboration indicative of where Nashville is heading and just how many styles of country music are viable right now.”

Beers On Me was co-written by Dierks Bentley, Ashley Gorley, Luke Dick, Ross Copperman, Breland and Hardy.
Beers is the second single from Dierk’s upcoming tenth album.
“Hardy threw out this title and I remember immediately thinking, I wish I could buy all my fans a beer. After the year we’ve all had, it would be nice to get the first round and say, Hey, we all got some problems but we’re going to forget about them for a little while, the beers are on me. I came back to Nashville to record the song and came across an article about Breland in the Nashville Scene. I got his number and he came in the next day and wrote and sang the third verse. It was truly an organic collaboration and I couldn’t be more proud to have him and Hardy on this song with me.”
“I want to thank everyone here for making it crystal clear that I’ve peaked. This is it! Just kidding, I hope. Country music served as a portal into another world for me. So, when I moved to Nashville at 19, started playing at the Station Inn, and discovered that people like Keith Whitley, Ricky Lee Skaggs and Marty Stuart were all bluegrass-inspired artists too, it helped me find my footing.”
