Luke Bryan has released his seventh studio album, Born Here Live Here Die Here.
On the album, Bryan pays tribute to his small town of Leesburg, Georgia, and the songs all deal with different facets of his life, whether it’s romance (“What She Wants Tonight” and “Where Are We Going”) or the loss of a father (“Build Me a Daddy”).
“I think my albums reflect all forms of life. When you listen to the whole body of the album, there’s certainly love songs, songs that deal with loss … songs that have sexy undertones.” the Georgia singer told The Tennessean.
“No matter what’s going on in the world, I’m gonna still always treat my albums like bringing everybody to the party; [I’ll] try to state who I am as a person and try to make music that my fans can relate to, but then still push some envelopes.”
The record was originally due out in April, but was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. “In the world of what we can complain about, me moving the album back … it felt like the only thing to do,” Byan said. “When I’m out promoting my music, I’m happy about it, excited about it. In April, we all knew what head spaces we were in.”
Born Here Live Here Die Here also features the Billboard Country Airplay chart-topping singles “Knockin’ Boots” and “One Margarita.” The singer’s last full-length album was 2017’s What Makes You Country.
