Outside light bulb keeps burning out

Hello, I have a question about what could be causing my outside light to be burning out light bulbs after a few minutes of being on. This just started happening all of a sudden. Outside light had been working fine for years. Light bulb we are using is a 60 watt bulb. I am hoping this isn't some kind of electrical problem. Could a bad fixture be causing this?

Welcome to the forums.

Try putting in 130v 60watt bulbs.
They aren't as fragile or prone to higher than normal voltage issues.
