episode 10: Beer Beer Putt Putt - George Birge

Country music isn’t always about beers or trucks…and golf isn’t always about what you shoot!  No better person can attest to this than George Birge. The Nashville singer joins us on today’s episode to talk…well, golf and music.

Recorded in Pittsburgh at 93.7 The Fan (Thank y’all!), we open up the episode and get to learn a little more about George. Growing up in West Texas is what we all imagine: dirt roads, wide-open spaces, and country music. Music came early for George. After walking on to the University of Texas Men’s Golf Team, he joined forces with his friends in a band called Waterloo Revival.

After yearning for something more, he left the band to start his own gig: George Birge. This is chasin’ birdies. We transition over to songwriting and how his hit “Beer, Beer, Truck, Truck” came to be. After some advice from a fellow star, George created a TikTok page and was off to the races. We dive into his first single, “Mind On You,” and how this came to be. Obviously, we now have to talk some golf.

We discuss the LIV Golf Tour and other current golf matters. As we wrap up the show, we pay homage to Links Brewing for hosting us at Oakmont for two days. Boy o boy, ol’ George lit it up. Birdie on 18? Yep.

We round out the show with our standard Tap-In segment, where George is asked questions that demand his quick-witted reply. Golf fans and country fans…tune in! You won’t want to miss this one.
