Luke Bryan is sharing more information about his forthcoming album.
In a Jul. 1 first conversation with SiriusXM’s The Highway, Bryan revealed that the project is about “half done.”
“I’ve got probably half of the project done,” Bryan told The Highway. “I’m going to spend a couple more months hopefully writing more music as ‘Country On’ is going up the charts. We’re working hard in the studio and then [we’re] going to go in and cut some more songs, and you know, have the ability to put a full album out,” he shared.
Bryan also said he’s got several songs that could work as potential future singles.
“We’ve got several songs right now that we feel like can be singles for the next [album]. You know the way music gets released these days and stuff, it’s so different, so you know the main thing that I focus on is just putting out the best music that I can and having fun and the rest will take care of itself,” he said.
Bryan’s current single from his upcoming project is “Country On.” Bryan released the single on Jul. 1 and the song became the most-added track at country radio the following week with a total of 91 radio stations adding the song to their rotation, according to Country Aircheck.
The song both celebrates Bryan’s upbringing as well as patriotism and the American dream.
In a recent episode of Superstar Power Hour with Audacy’s Katie Neal, Bryan described exactly what drew him to the song and what it means to him.
“When you think about the term ‘Country On,’ it’s a statement that says a lot in those two words,” Bryan said. “From the first time I heard the first lyric, ‘Hey farm boy, keep dropping that plow,’ it really hit me. The song covers so many aspects of country living, and country life — from hard work to the American dream, to being optimistic about the future of the country and how we all must ‘Country On’ to really be one.”
“It’s got patriotism in it, it’s got honoring people that keep us free and people that keep us safe and look after us. I think that’s something the Country music crowd is always very, very appreciative of because so many in Country music are those people.”
“Then when you listen to the last chorus talking about [how] Nashville keeps uplifting songwriters, and how the Nashville dream, moving to Nashville and writing a song, to following your dreams as a songwriter, [that] is a big part of the song too,” he continued.
Bryan is currently performing on his Raised Up Right Tour, which concludes on Oct. 28 in Jacksonville, Florida. Bryan will also be playing a handful of his Farm Tour dates as well as six nights in Las Vegas at The Theatre at Resort World.
Additionally, Jon Pardi recently revealed that Luke Bryan will be joining him on a duet for his upcoming new album.
