What do “11 Beers,” Jake Owen, and two JUNO Awards nominations have in common? The Reklaws, that’s what!
On March 11, the brother and sister duo from rural Ontario known as The Reklaws dropped their latest single, “11 Beers,” everywhere and it feat. nine-time #1, multi-PLATINUM entertainer and Big Loud Recording artist Jake Owen. This single is an ’80s inspired pop medley that is also a hopeful love song and will surely turn into country’s next party anthem where one can’t help but dance along. This track transports listeners back to the dreamy elation after a great first date and then watching it disappear right before your eyes before the last drink.
“11 Beers” was written by Nashville heavy-hitters Michael Hardy (Blake Shelton, Florida Georgia Line, Chris Lane, Cole Swindell), Ashley Gorley (Luke Bryan, Carrie Underwood, Thomas Rhett), Hunter Phelps (Florida Georgia Line), and Ben Johnson (Charlie Puth, Lee Brice).
The Reklaws’s Jenna Walker says this about the single,
“We know our fans are going to relate to this track because we’ve all lived through losing something before we felt it was finished. We’re so honoured that Jake Owen, an artist we’ve partied to and been inspired by since he changed all of our lives with “Barefoot Blue Jean Night,” agreed to join us on it and bring his signature easy-going, breezy melodies to take this fun love song over the top.”
Stuart Walker goes on to say,
“We wanted to do something a bit different for our next single, but it still needed to feel like us. As soon as Jake sent this song over, we could already hear our fans singing it back on festival stages this summer, which is always the most important part to us. “11 Beers” will have couples reminiscing on their first dates while tapping their toes to that four-on-the-floor beat – something not every country song is able to do!”
Together, this trio has delivered an anthem full of potential. Taking the listener back to memories of the one that got away, “11 Beers” is slated to become yet another massive hit for the incredibly deserving sibling duo.

Hi all. I’m Nanci Dagg. I am from Winnipeg, Manitoba, and have lived my entire life here. There is nothing I like better than supporting local artists followed by supporting Canadian artists. Although I was a classic rock gal, my go to genre is country. Something about this music that just makes me feel great. I can be found at most country music concerts and shows (from someone’s house to really large venues) taking lots of pictures. Music and photography are two of my passions. Add to this mix, writing about artists, well let’s say, life doesn’t get better than this.
