Luke Bryan no longer needs margaritas! The country star has had enough of the popular cocktail thanks to his famous tune ‘One Margarita’.

The 44-year-old singer even joked that he got so many free cocktails because of the song he thinks people are trying to kill him with drink. “The problem with having ‘One Margarita’ as a hit is that now everyone wants to send me three margaritas and a shot,” he explained in a Delicious video published Monday, August 3.

Today, the Vote The consultant’s palette has evolved, and he enjoys slightly different fried food when on tour. ‘When I’m on the go, my most favorite Southern meal is always my mom’s style fried chicken – in a cast iron skillet with tiny beads, not those big steroids [sic] things that look like half a turkey sub, “he said.
