LISTEN: "Cold Beer Brought You Back": Blake Wood's Honky Tonk Revival

Step into the honky-tonk time machine and buckle up for a wild ride with Blake Wood's latest barn burner, "Cold Beer Brought You Back."

Born in Kentucky and raised in Wake Forest, NC, emerging country star Blake Wood draws from personal experiences to shape the songs he writes and sings. While some artists may need to imagine certain lifestyles to convey them convincingly, Blake draws from his own lived experiences, such as tearing up backroads and off-roading, casting a line for largemouth bass, and cruising in his trusty old trucks. Recently, he bid farewell to his faithful companion, a 2001 GMC Sierra 1500, which had racked up nearly 300,000 miles.A true reflection of everything small-town and middle America, this toe-tapping tune not only brings back the nostalgic twang of 90’s country but also adds a modern twist that's as refreshing as a cold brew on a scorching summer day.

Wood's vocals transport listeners to the heart of old-school country while sprinkling in just the right amount of contemporary swagger. With lyrics that are equal parts witty and heartfelt, this song is a rollicking journey through love, loss, and the redemptive power of a frosty beverage.

The chorus, with its clever wordplay, invites you to raise a glass and join in the fun: It's a sentiment that hits home for anyone who's ever found solace in the bottom of a bottle.

If whiskey made you miss me

And Cold Beer Brought You Back

This house would be full of empties

And bone dry bottles of Jack

I'd raise some hell, go off the rails

And put us back on track

If whiskey made you miss me

And Cold Beer Brought You Back

But beyond the catchy hooks and infectious beat, "Cold Beer Brought You Back" is a testament to Wood's songwriting prowess. Co-penned with his brother Jon Wood and Brandon Kinney, the song seamlessly blends classic country elements with a modern sensibility, creating a sound that feels both timeless and fresh. In Wood's own words, "Cold Beer Brought You Back" is more than just a breakup anthem—it's a celebration of resilience and the healing power of music. Whether you're nursing a broken heart or simply looking for a tune to crank up with a cold one in hand, this track is guaranteed to hit the spot.

So, grab your boots, grab a beer, and press play on Blake Wood's "Cold Beer Brought You Back." It's a musical journey you won't want to miss.
