Bright, catchy and truly infectious!
Country-pop sensation Hayden Joseph’s upcoming single “Dog Beers” will have listeners up on their feet and dancing the weekend away.
The title is an extremely clever play on the concept of “dog years,” with the line “in dog beers I’ve only had one” cheekily brushing off how wild the evening has been. Who said beer drinking songs couldn’t be for the LGBTQ+ community?
Against the odds, Hayden Joseph has independently built a community of nearly 250,000 followers on TikTok through a shared desire to expand country music’s look, sound, and subject matter into something for everyone to feel included in as an out country artist.

His viral videos and consistent releases have landed him placements in People and Huffington Post, as well as a spotlight segment on Nashville News Channel 5. His debut album, “Different,” was released in spring of 2021, logging nearly 1M streams across platforms to date. Its follow-up singles saw even more rapid trajectories, securing placements on several notable Spotify editorials, including “Out Now,” “New Music Nashville,” “Fresh Finds,” and “Country Christmas.” His latest EP, “I’m Not There Yet,” released March 30th with much critical acclaim. He has been featured on several highly esteemed independent playlists, such asCMT (“Roundup”/“Pride”), CMA (“Pride”), ACM (“New Music Friday”/“Pride”).
“Dog Beers” is catchy, bright and a perfect encapsulation of that feeling of getting off work for a summer weekend.
The positive energy of this track is infectious, and you’ll probably find yourself fighting the urge to sing along. Lighthearted dog barks at the track’s end (from Hayden’s Frenchie himself, Vince), seem to say “What are you waiting for?” Roll those sleeves up, get a few friends together, crack some beers and chill out past the sunset.
