Luke Combs fans have been waiting for this day for a while. Because after debuting this new song during an acoustic performance at the beginning of 2019, "Beer Never Broke My Heart" has finally arrived.
"Beer Never Broke My Heart" is an ode to the one thing that has never, could never, and will never let Luke down: an ice cold beer. In the chorus, he sings, "Well longneck ice cold beer never broke my heart/ Like diamond rings and football teams have torn this boy apart/ Like a neon dream it just don't know me, the bars and this guitar/ A longneck ice cold beer never broke my heart."
Luke also shared the official "Beer Never Broke My Heart" music video, in which the country star starts playing to an empty bar that quickly fills up with broken-hearted people, sharing an ice cold beer as they sing along to the song.
Combs released his debut full-length album, This One's For You, in 2017, and a week before releasing the song, 29-year-old jokingly teased fans that new music could not be released this year. Good one, Luke. He wrote on social media, "New music update (please read the whole post before commenting): For all intents and purposes, I had plans to release new music this year, but due to unforeseen circumstances, it isn’t going to happen. JK… “BEER NEVER BROKE MY HEART” OUT A WEEK FROM TODAY ON MAY 8 AT 9 AM EDT!"
Combs first introduced "Beer Never Broke My Heart" when he performed an acoustic version of the song at this year's Country Radio Seminar. He then shared the live version with fans via his Facebook page, hinting that the official recorded version would be coming this year, and not to mention his latest tour is also named after the track.
