Rising artist Alyssa Micaela is partnering with Bud Light to release a song she co-wrote titled “Bud Light Baby.” The track is now available at all digital retailers.

“Earlier in 2016, we changed Bud Light’s look with new packaging,” said Colleen Kelly, Regional Marketing Director, Anheuser-Busch. “Now we are changing the way we engage with our consumers. Alyssa is a passionate young artist that writes and sings fun yet powerful songs that resonate with her fans and our consumers. We are excited to have Alyssa join the Bud Light Party and look forward to working together to provide fans with unique experiences only Bud Light can create.”

“I am so excited to partner with Bud Light!” said Michaela, who signed a songwriting deal with Warner/Chappell Music and Liz Rose Music earlier this year. “Their new branding and established presence in country music are such a great fit for me. Not to mention, it’s my favorite beer!”
