Luke Bryan Story

Luke Bryan’s
amazing career continues on its well-deserved upward path. On October
24, he stepped onto the stage of the CMA Theater at the Country Music
Hall of Fame for a “Beyond The Stadium Lights” party
to celebrate SEVEN Number One hits.  He
shared the stage with the writers of the hit songs, being sure to
emphasize that this event was ‘all about the writers’ who created these
amazing songs. In performing the seven
songs, Bryan and the songs’ writers took turns singing the verses and
choruses, obviously having a heck of a good time together at this
once-in-a-lifetime event. The seven Number Ones, with writer credits)
are: ‘Home Alone Tonight’ (Tommy Cecil, Jaida Dreyer,
Jody Stevens, Cole Taylor); ‘Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day’
(Luke Bryan, Rhett Akins, Dallas Davidson, Ben Hayslip); ‘I See You’
(Luke Bryan, Ashley Gorley, Luke Laird); ‘Kick the Dust Up’ (Dallas
Davidson, Chris DeStefano, Ashley Gorley); 
‘Play It Again’ (Dallas Davidson, Ashley Gorley); ‘Roller
Coaster’ (Michael Carter, Cole Swindell); ‘Strip It Down’ (Luke Bryan,
Ross Copperman, Jon Nite). Luke and the writers shared stories – often
hilarious stories – telling how each of the songs
came about. To cap the evening, Universal Music Group’s Mike Dungan
announced that Luke’s album ‘Kill The Lights’ had just been certified
Platinum. He also gave some stats: 8 million albums sold, 355 streams
and 16th Number one singles. Luke quoted Country
Music and Songwriter Hall of Famer Bobby Braddock, “Boys, Looks Like We
Got Plaque Build Up.
