Bryan slates new album, tour

Thursday, January 16, 2020 – Luke Bryan will release his seventh studio album, Born Here, Live Here, Die Here" on April 24.

The disc is the follow-up to 2017's "What Makes You Country," which was his third consecutive release to debut at No. 1 on Billboard's Top 200.

Bryan will tour behind the album, starting May 28 in Cincinnati, Ohio with his 40-plus show Proud To Be Right Here tour. Caylee Hammack, Runaway June and Morgan Wallen will open shows. "'Proud to be right here' is a phrase from my new album's title track, 'Born Here, Live Here, Die Here' (written by Jameson Rodgers, Josh Thompson, Jake Mitchell)," Bryan said. "From the moment I first heard it, I loved that this song related so closely to how I grew up and how I still have so many ties to my hometown. It's a connection I feel is so important in country music."

"I am truly so thankful to have the opportunity to make music for my fans and to look out into the crowds each night from stage and be proud of what we've created. And I'm excited to get on the road with these guest artists too. I've been watching what Morgan is building with his fans and it has been so fun to watch! I know with him, Caylee and Runaway June on this tour it's going to be such a high energy night for everyone."

CD reviews for Luke Bryan

CD review - Born Here, Live Here, Die Here After taking in Luke Bryan's "Born Here Live Here Die Here," the listener will never guess this full length was released during a pandemic.

CD review - What Makes You Country Luke Bryan aims to please often, and that rarely goes unpunished. The Georgia native has a strong voice, some songwriting skill and even legitimate farming cred. But Bryan still gets pegged as the face of corporate country - that pandering beast packaging artists for mass consumption. The label can be unfair, but not wholly undeserved - Bryan has a long track record, for instance, of records about chasing girls and Bud Lights. In truth, he married his college sweetheart and they share a quiet, ...
CD review - Farm Tour...Here's to the Farmer Luke Bryan has been in that "hardware" phase of his career for the last few years. There have been several armloads of awards, many on the strength of the high-caliber singles from 2013's "Crash My Party." It might present a challenge to stay grounded. But Bryan has kept himself busy with work for charities (he's embarking on a traditional tour of farms to benefit his scholarship fund), and the use of the EP - this marks his eighth.
