Hit-making recording artist, songwriter and producer Shy Carter lives every word of his “barroom banger” (MusicRow) “Beer With My Friends” in the official music video, out now (watch HERE). Real-life buddies Cole Swindell and David Lee Murphy, both featured on the track, joined him at Nashville’s legendary Springwater bar for the raucous celebration. Directed by Spidey Smith, the video complements the “summer ready-anthem” with a “chorus tailor-made for singing along” (County Now).
“Shooting this video was a blast,” Carter said. “David Lee is the coolest guy ever, and Cole Swindell just kills it. Like the song says, I got to hang out with them and a whole bunch of other beautiful people all day! We even had a line dance choreographed, which fit right in with the whole vibe of the party. So go watch the video, dance and crack a cold one!”
The multi-talented musician co-wrote “Beer With My Friends” alongside Murphy and Bryan Simpson. Taste of Country praised the single, which is currently hitting radio airwaves, for its “modern, yet ‘90s country-influenced melody” and “gang-vocal chorus” that are “sure to get the party started.” Carter, Swindell and Murphy recently visited The Bobby Bones Show to talk about and perform what Sounds Like Nashville calls a “singalong jam” (watch the interview HERE).
Carter will keep the party going into the fall as he joins Tyler Rich on his Two Thousand Miles Tour for 16 shows across the West Coast, including a stop in Los Angeles at the world-famous Troubadour (check out tour dates and more HERE).
The born entertainer, known already for his ever-present smile and good-time attitude, introduced himself as a soulful country artist with the “broad, breezy optimism” (NPR) of “Good Love.” The first half of the year provided Carter with opportunities to share the uplifting tune on national platforms. He made his debut on NBC News’ 3rd Hour of TODAY (watch HERE), and the song was also featured in the Hallmark Channel’s “Spring Fling” movie event trailer.
With credits that span Kane Brown’s “Heaven” to Charlie Puth’s “One Call Away,” Carter is one of the most formidable up-and-coming talents in Nashville and beyond. He is among the writers behind Billy Currington's “It Don't Hurt Like it Used To,” Sugarland’s smash hit “Stuck Like Glue” and Rob Thomas’ single “Someday.” In addition to his feature on Tim McGraw’s “Way Down,” Carter has collaborated with Keith Urban on both “Never Comin’ Down” and “My Wave.” Named to Variety’s 2018 Hitmakers list, he has also worked with Jason Derulo, Meghan Trainor, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Lopez, Nelly and more. Now Carter is taking to YouTube to share more about his journey into songwriting and insight into some of his most massive hits (watch HERE).
