Luke Bryan just released his seventh studio album, Born Here, Live Here, Die Here, on Friday, August 7.

The country superstar is now sharing the story behind his fan-favorite, poignant track “Build Me A Daddy.”

“Sometimes you just have to record an unbelievably written, beautiful, emotional song and ‘Build Me A Daddy’ does that. It speaks about a child that’s lost their Dad and this child, the way he explains how he wants to get his Dad back for he and his Mom is one of the coolest ways that i’ve ever heard a song written,” Bryan explained. “I think country music has always been so important to really dive in and talk about tough subjects. There’s people out there that are gonna really really relate to this song and it’s gonna really affect them hopefully in a beautiful way.”

“Build Me A Daddy” was co-written by Jake Mitchell alongside Josh Thompson and Brett Tyler.

“Could you build me a daddy? Strong as Superman, Make him ten feet tall, with a southern drawl and a crooked smile if you can, ‘Cause I sure miss him, Maybe you could bring him back? If I walked in with him, it’d sure make momma happy, If you could build me a daddy,” Bryan croons.

Born Here, Live Here, Die Here includes the singles “Knockin’ Boots,” “What She Wants Tonight,” and his 25th No. 1 single “One Margarita”.

The country superstar recently was forced to postpone his Proud To Be Right Here Tour due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. He also nixed the idea of having his annual Farm Tour for the first time in 11-years.
