Justin Moore will be crackin' some cold ones this weekend as he celebrates taking the top spot on the Billboard Country Airplay chart with his single Why We Drink, reaching the pinnacle after climbing for 47 weeks.

Why We Drink is the second single from Moore's album 'Late Nights and Longs Necks' which also features The Ones That Didn't Make It Back.

The tongue-in-cheek music video for Why We Drink was filmed in Poyen, Arkansas with Moore, his family and his friends.

Speaking to Country Music Television in July, Moore revealed his inspiration for Why We Drink.

"My wife and I had gone to dinner maybe a year or two before all of this. We were at a Chili's or Fridays or something real fancy like that. And so we were there with my parents, and I had ordered two or three beers before our food got there. And my mom goes, 'Why do you drink so much?' And I said, 'I don't know, I just like it.' Mind you, she was drinking a margarita at the time," said Moore.

"Well, after that dinner, I was down in Destin, Florida with David Lee Murphy, Casey Beathard and Jeremy Stover. And I had this idea and the title, and I told the story about my mom to the guys. Then Murphy goes, "'Cause it's Friday. 'Cause it's Monday." Then we all just started kind of joking around about all these things. And we just kind of threw out every cliche reason we could think of for a few minutes. We literally were standing in my pool drinking beer - it was that simple."

Previous hits from Moore include chart-topper Small Town USA, If Heaven Wasn't So Far, Till My Last Day, Lettin' The Night Roll, You Look Like I Need A Drink and Somebody Else Will.
