Jason Aldean sends new version of 'Take a Little Ride' to radio to support his new Coors sponsorship

Take a Little Ride
Jason Aldean's new single Take a Little Ride is a monster hit for him already, landing at #19 on the Billboard country songs chart, making it the highest debut single of his career.  

Well hopefully you haven't memorized the song for Karaoke night at your local hangout because Jason has officially changed the lyrics to the song and is asking radio to play the new version instead of the old -- and it's all because of a new endorsement deal he's working on with Coors beer. 

Here's the notice some radio stations received today regarding the lyric change:  

"Jason Aldean is in the process of signing an endorsement deal with the Coors Brewing Company. With that, he has changed the "Shiner Bock" line in the song "Take A Little Ride" to "A Couple Rocky Tops". We respectfully request you exchange this version with the one you are currently playing."

And here's the bit that was changed.

Old version

Been goin' round and round all day
Bailin' some hay and stacking it all up
Can't wait for the sun to go down
Roll into town, shine the old truck up
Swing by the quick stop
Grab a little shiner bock
Then ease on out your way
To your place around 8 o'clock

 

New version

Been goin' round and round all day
Bailin' some hay and stacking it all up
Can't wait for the sun to go down
Roll into town, shine the old truck up
Swing by the quick stop
Grab a couple Rocky Tops
Then ease on out your way
To your place around 8 o'clock

Well I guess it's not quite as cheesy as it could have been since they didn't add the words Coors to the song, but still hits me as odd. You would have thought they would have just saved themselves the hassle and sent out the new version to radio instead of the old. I'm sure this endorsement deal didn't just sneak up on them in the last day or two.
