Luke Bryan’s ‘One Margarita’ Is the Sunny Song You Need [Listen]
With all the alarming and negative news circulating recently, Luke Bryan's new song and video, "One Margarita," is a welcome moment to realize that life can still be sunny.
The video shows Bryan cavorting on the beach at what appears to be his latest Crash My Playa event, and he confirms this on his social media.
"We had too much fun filming this out in Mexico," he notes. "Do you see any familiar faces?" (Fans will easily spot Bryan's wife Caroline and mom LeClaire, both of whom are beloved by his fanbase, having a good old time right next to him out on the sand.)
As for the song itself, it's a light, sparkling, feel-good number dedicated to a bit of old-fashioned hedonism that has Bryan counting "One margarita, two margarita, three margarita, we'll be gone," and name-dropping Bob Marley, Jimmy Buffett and Kenny Chesney. A mariachi band helps the vibe along, and everyone has plenty of smiles to spare.
It's pretty hard to hear this song or watch the video and not feel a very welcome relief from the real world — even for just a few minutes.

Luke Bryan's "One Margarita" Lyrics:
Everybody here ain't from here / But we're here doing our thing / Letting go a little, little by little / Sipping on a frozen drink / Tiki bars tik'n, pouring all weekend / Clouds ain't leaking no rain / Two pieces shaking, white caps a-breaking / We ain't feelin' no pain, it goes like …”
One margarita, two margarita, three margarita, shot / Don't worry 'bout tomorrow / Leave all your sorrow out here on the floatin' dock / When that sun lays down, we'll be on our way / One more barefoot round, one more last chance to say / Hey Señorita don't you think we need /A salt and a Buffett song / One margarita, two margarita, three margarita / We'll be gone.
Ice blue skies, shades on the eyes / To tuck the bloodshot away / Hair of the dog, shouldn't take long / But who cares, we got all day / Palm trees a-leaning, sunburn screaming / But we'll all be alright, after …
Tiki bars tik'n, pouring all weekend / Clouds ain't leaking no rain / Two pieces shaking, white caps a-breaking / We ain't feelin' no pain, it goes like …”
