Scotty McCreery is paying tribute to '90s country and the songs of yesteryears with "Can't Pass the Bar."

Penned by Scotty, Brent AndersonCale Dodds and Frank Rogers, the barn-burning ode boasts an all-too-relatable storyline of one spending their week's paycheck for drinks at a bar with their friends.

"When the long week’s paychecks are cashed/ Where we gonna spend it, buddy you ain’t gotta ask/ When the neon lights are kicking on, all of us are heading/ To a home away from home/ We don’t look like much but we’re pretty damn smart/ For some good ole boys that can’t pass the bar," Scotty sings in the jaunty chorus.

"I grew up loving '90s country music, especially the barn burning songs. I wanted one of my own, so I got together with some of my buddies and we wrote it," he says. "Can’t wait to perform this song live on the Cab in a Solo Tour."

The Cab in a Solo kicks off January 26 in Troy, Ohio. For tickets and a full list of dates, head to

Scotty's in the top 20 of the country charts with "Cab in a Solo," the lead single from his forthcoming album.
