“There’s a Tear in My Beer” is a country song written by Hank Williams between 1950-1951 during his Nashville sessions but despite having recorded it, he never released it. The song would eventually see release in 1989 after Hank Williams Jr. received a demo of the song. With the use of merging technology, Hank Williams Jr. recorded his voice over his father’s recording and released it as a duet. In the music video for the song he also used previously recorded footage of his father.
