If you tour with Luke Bryan, then you might want to bring some pen and paper with you.
Since the singer clearly loves to write music, he doesn’t let things like touring get in the way of putting together a new song. Bryan also wouldn’t mind penning some tunes with the folks he brings on tour, though it doesn’t happen as often as you might think.
Luke recently discussed his desire to collaborate with Cole Swindell and Lee Brice during a recent conversation with Country Weekly magazine. Judging from Bryan’s comments, he’s having an absolute blast while hanging out with these guys on the road.
“It’s fun having your buddies out. Hopefully, me and Lee and Cole can get together and write a song one of these days,” the country singer explained.
He added, “To have Cole out there with me night in and night out—it brings back of lot of memories from when he was selling [merchandise]. We’re having a blast with it.”
According to CMT, Luke Bryan recently brought his show to fans in Memphis, Tennessee. In addition to banging out a rendition of the Elvis Presley classic “Suspicious Minds,” he also brought Swindell and Brice on-stage for a cover of the Macklemore & Ray Lewis hit “Can’t Hold Us.” It’s obvious that Bryan loves what he does for a living.
Luke is definitely a hot commodity in the genre at the moment. In fact, the singer’s popularity has grown to the point that he’s added a few stadium shows to his tour this summer. Other like-minded artists who have played stadium shows over the years include Rascal Flatts, Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Taylor Swift, and Brad Paisley.
One person who is clearly impressed with Luke Bryan’s success is fellow artist Tim McGraw. He recently told CMT that country music is coming back in a big way. The proof lies in the amount of ticket Bryan and his cohorts are selling these days.
“I can’t believe the tickets that country music is selling or the success that country music is having on the radio, and I think it’s because there’s a realness to it. It’s a connection with people that country music has that, I think, that’s always been there, but it seems to be just growing exponentially,” he told the outlet.
