"Straight Outta Cold Beer" is a song recorded by American singer Blake Shelton for his tenth studio album, 2016's If I'm Honest. The track was written by Marv Green, Ben Hayslip, and Justin Wilson, while production was solely handled by Shelton's longtime producer Scott Hendricks. A country song, Shelton sings about his youth, where everyone partied until the beer was gone.

"Straight Outta Cold Beer" was generally well received by music critics, with the majority enjoying the "party" nature of the recording. One reviewer appreciated Shelton staying true to his "country roots". Within its first two weeks of availability, the track sold a total of 17,000 copies. In the United States, it debuted and peaked at #23 on Billboard's Country Digital Songs component chart, while also managing to reach the top 40 of the same publication's Hot Country Songs chart.

Shelton discussed his inspiration behind the track to Rolling Stone's Beville Dunkerley: "Basically it’s just about having a throwdown out in the woods — that’s what we used to do in high school. I can’t honestly sit here and say that I do it much anymore, I’m getting too old, but it’s fun for me to sing about those times and the crazy stuff that I used to do, and the crazy stuff that I know somewhere, as we speak right now, kids are doing somewhere in somebody's field. I know you're tearing it up out there."
