Michael Warren lends his signature sound and southern country swagger to the song with an homage to Nelly and the Jeffersons in the bridge and final chorus.
To the discerning country music fan, this song may not seem like the same old three chords in the truth, but in reality it is. Renner mentions "King & the boys" a shoutout to his Home Golf Club friends in Montgomery Texas at the Walden Golf Club, Renner feeds truth into this song and a glimpse into his daily life and how he handles things when the going gets tough and the chips are down. To some, the song might come across as a cliche ode to the everyday life of the average guy, but for Renner, that's ok.
The chorus says...
"If the money don't make and the luck don't break, the rain don't fall and the beer don't drink, tell me man, what would you do? I'd get to stacking them bills and making my luck, drop a tailgate on a pickup truck, and drink a beer or two, that's what I'd do".
What can you do? Check it out, buy it on iTunes or stream it on all major streaming services and give it a share and a download while you're at it, put it on a summer playlist and bump it all summer long while drinking a beer or two!
