Luke Bryan

Thomas Luther (Luke) Bryan is a songwriter and American country music singer. Born in Leesburg, GA., he spent most of his early childhood on the farm. At the age of fifteen, Bryan was entertaining small crowds and gained attention from two local artists who provided songs for many other artists in Nashville. When he graduated high school, Bryan moved to Nashville pursue his music career.

When his brother died in a car accident, Bryan pushed his music career to the back burner and all he cared about was his family at the time. However, the experience helped him improve his songwriting technique.

Bryan has sold over twenty-seven million tracks, seven million albums and has had twelve number one hits back-to-back. Also, he has played for over 1.7 million fans and sold-out four stadiums.

Out of all the albums and songs, the music listeners chose Bryan’s Crash My Party as number one. Crash My Party is his fourth studio album and was released in August of 2013. Songs on this album include “ Crash My Party”, “Blood Brothers”, “Dirt Road Diary” and “Shut It Down” to name a few.

His second most successful album was released in 2015, named Kill The Lights. It is his fifth studio album, and songs on the album include “Kick The Dust Up”, “Home Alone Tonight”, “Strip it Down” and “Kill The Lights”.

Bryan’s third most popular album is Tailgates & Tanlines and was released in August 2011. Songs on this album include “Faded Away”, “I Knew You That Way” and  “Tailgate Blues”. On this album, Bryan co-wrote eight of the thirteen tracks.
