– Reigning CMA New Artist Of The Year and ACM New Male Vocalist Jon Pardi’s re-recorded version of “I Like Beer” is the new anthem for Michelob ULTRA’s second ad spot that will broadcast during the Super Bowl. USA Today and “Extra” exclusively debuted the commercial, which includes celebrity Chris Pratt, US Open Golf Champion Brooks Koepka, 11-time World Surf League Champion Kelly Slater and 2017 NYC Marathon winner Shalane Flanagan singing the song together.

“This past year has been filled with so many milestones and bucket list items, and when Michelob Ultra reached out with an opportunity to be part of this Super Bowl commercial, I was all in. It was such a fun experience to record this version of the song and it’s awesome to be a part of it,” says Pardi.
“I Like Beer” is one of two ads kicking off Michelob ULTRA’s “You Can Do Both” campaign, which demonstrate how it’s possible to be fit and still enjoy beer. Originally recorded by Tom T. Hall, “I Like Beer” was rearranged and re-recorded by Pardi. This marks the second large event TV commercial for the award-winning singer/songwriter. Earlier this week, Pardi also made an appearance during the truth campaign’s prime-time Grammy commercial, which can be viewed HERE.
Pardi’s single “She Ain’t In It” is currently Top 30-and-climbing on the Billboard Country Airplay charts. “She Ain’t In It” follows three consecutive #1 hits including “Dirt On My Boots,” Platinum-selling “Head Over Boots” and “Heartache On The Dance Floor.” He is currently performing nationwide with Miranda Lambert’s Livin’ Like Hippies Tour and it was just announced that Pardi will join Luke Bryan’s What Makes You Country Tour this summer. Pardi is also nominated for iHeartRadio Music Awards Country Song Of The Year (“Dirt On My Boots”) and Best New Country Artist.
