When you think radio single, you don’t tend to think of alcohol-fueled teenage pregnancy, but that’s exactly what we have with Hardy’s “One Beer (featuring Lauren Alaina and Devin Dawson).”
And believe it or not, the song was inspired by the great John Prine.
“There’s a John Prine song, I’m a huge fan of John Prine, and it’s called “Six O’Clock News” and it’s about this kid who grew up not knowing who his dad was. And it’s basically this amazing craft of writing where the verse is all these details about this kid and his struggles through life without knowing his dad. I’ve been a fan of that song for so long that it really inspired me try and do something like that myself.”
The new music video illustrates how scary it can be when you first get that news, but also the beauty of parenthood and how ultimately, it’s all part of the plan. You might even wind up with a couple goosebumps.
