Average Joe's Entertainment artist Kevin Fowler racked up his 8th #1 single when his "Hell Yeah, I Like Beer" cut topped the Texas Music Chart this week. The second track on his upcoming Chippin' Away album, the song quickly became a favorite in clubs and dance halls across the Lone Star State and beyond.
"What more can I say? If you know me, you know that this song is definitely autobiographical," said an elated Fowler, who wrote the song with David Lee Murphy and Shane Minor. "I do love beer. And what would any Kevin Fowler record be without a good ol' beer drinkin' song? Thanks to the stations for playin' it and the fans for goin' crazy for it." (first part of quote is from his song by song, second part I obviously made up.)
The corresponding music video, which Kevin himself directed, also quickly become the most viewed video on all of CMT's website, hitting #1 and is planted on the website's "Today's Top Videos" section. The clip includes cameo appearances by Boston Red Sox pitchers Josh Beckett (World Series MVP), Clay Buchholz, John Lackey and Roberto Clemente Award winner Tim Wakefield, fellow artists, Ray Benson, Dierks Bentley, Eli Young Band, Colt Ford, Pat Green, Jack Ingram, Sunny Sweeny, actor/comedian Rodney Carrington, four-time World Champion Bull Rider Tuff Hedeman, and a host of others...and a lot of beer, of course.
