• LUKE BRYAN CELEBRATES 10TH ANNIVERSARY OF HIS 2009 BREAKTHOUGH ALBUM DOIN’ MY THING WITH FIRST-EVER VINYL RELEASE ON OCTOBER 4th.

    Since achieving stardom with his sophomore album Doin’ My Thing, Luke Bryan has maintained his stature as country music’s most beloved artist. In celebration of the 10th anniversary of Doin’ My Thing, Bryan’s acclaimed album will receive its vinyl debut on October 4th via Capitol Nashville/UMe as an expanded deluxe edition featuring 13 tracks, including two rare bonus songs, “Y’all Can Have This Town” and “Favorite Flowers,” previously only available on the iTunes exclusive version of the album. The LP will be released on standard black vinyl as well as limited edition translucent clear vinyl, available exclusively at via Luke Bryan and UMG Nashville’s web stores. The deluxe edition of Doin’ My Thing will also be released digitally on October 4th.

    “I think Doin’ My Thing was such a very important album for me, my sophomore album. I learned so much, certainly after I’ll Stay Me, but now that I get to hear it on vinyl, I can go back and really remember the work that you put in,” says Luke. “It was such a tough time in my career. I mean, I’m trying to prove myself day in and day out from doing live shows to recording the best music that I can, and this album really speaks volumes of where I was at this time in my career. There are album cuts on this album that fans still request and want me to play in my live shows. I think ‘Drinkin’ Beer and Wastin’ Bullets’ was such a big song for me to go do live. The fans loved it, and Doin’ My Thing was, it was just where I was at in my life, and I’m just so glad I had some big hits on it to keep my career going onward and upward.”

  • LUKE BRYAN RETURNS FOR A THIRD SEASON OF “AMERICAN IDOL.”

    Once, Twice, Three Times a…Judge! Luke Bryan, Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, host Ryan Seacrest will return for their third season of American Idol together on ABC. Radio host Bobby Bones returns as mentor to the contestants. Auditions for the upcoming season have been taking place since July 23rd, and the show will debut sometime next Spring.

    Last year, Luke was excited to return to the show for the second season, because he knew what to expect.

    “I’m more excited this year because I know what to expect. I’m not going to be scared the whole time. The fact that me and Lionel and Katy and Ryan we have one season under our belt; we know how much we can have fun with one another. We know how serious the contestants take it. We’re excited. I mean, I know we’re more excited than last year, just because we know what to expect, and it’s gonna be a lot of surprises and a lot of fun.”

    The Georgia native and four-time Entertainer of the Year says he loves being a judge on the show and helping make dreams come true. “We love the role – me and Katy and Lionel and Ryan – we’re having a great time doing this. If we weren’t having a good time, it would change the whole dynamic. To be able to facilitate these kids’ dreams is very special.”

    Luke, who is closing in on Top 5 with his latest smash “Knockin’ Boots,” takes his Sunset Repeat Tour to Bangor, Maine on Thursday (August 8th).

    Luke Bryan (Farm Tour) 1 OC: …for the fans. :59
    “Farm Tour is just fun to me, and it’s something that anytime you can start something that starts small and grow it. We never want to make it this really ginormous thing that we can’t control, but we want to make sure it’s on our terms and we love doing it. And then we want to make sure that the communities that we partner up with from the sheriff’s office to the highway patrol guys to the colleges to the college kids, we want to make sure it’s a positive thing  at the end of the day for the communities. Therefore, that’s why we do the scholarships and we hope that we leave these places better than we found ‘em, and we hope people continue to want us back. And we hope we feel like we’re a positive thing for the local economies for these small towns, which wouldn’t necessarily have 15, 20-thousand people converging on ‘em. I hope it’s a positive thing for ‘em and not a negative. I enjoy being out there [performing in] the field and playing for the fans.”

    AJ (fave 4th of July memory) OC: …very cool. :58
    Well, this one is hard to beat. A couple of years ago, maybe longer than that now, I had an old boat in Florida. It’s like an old antique motor yacht, and it was kind of a cool old boat. I had taken that boat, I’ve always wanted to take it up north like to New York and up in that area, up in the northeast where it’s so pretty. So, we took the boat up there and Denise and the girls, we all went up. They like going to New York City, which I don’t really care about going to the city. So, I got to stay in my boat there at the harbor tied up, which was cool anyway. So they spent time in the city a few days and then that was Fourth of July, and we went out in the Hudson River that night and they shot the fireworks off and we were anchored out in front of the Statue of Liberty and New York City was behind us, and the Statue of Liberty and the fireworks were going off sitting on that boat. That was the coolest thing and my girls still talk about that. I mean, that was the coolest thing on Fourth of July I can ever remember. I can’t top that one probably. It was emotional sitting there watching the Statue of Liberty and thinking about all that. It was very cool.”

    “I remember everybody hanging out at my grandmother’s and we would drive down the road to a fireworks stand off the side of Highway 45 out there in Jackson [Tennessee]. Just getting the bottle rockets and Black Cats and bringing ‘em back to the house, it felt like it was an eternity before it got dark. We just kept wanting to light ‘em and our parents would tell us it ain’t time, but just how exhilarating it was to see ‘em shoot up. We’re not talking big time fireworks here, but you would’ve thought that it was. It’s funny just how you remember things, but I just remember a screen door at my grandmother’s, running in and out, in and out, in and out and four wild little cousins running around. It was good times.”

    “I think my favorite Fourth of July memory would be going to the fireworks stand and picking out which fireworks I wanted to do. I must’ve been like 7 or 8, and I came home and made a list of what order I wanted to do them in, because I wanted to put a show on for Mom and Dad, and of course I couldn’t wait until it was dark outside (laughs). So, I made my Mom and Dad get the lawn chairs and come out to the backyard and watch some not very dramatic fireworks at like six o’clock in the evening, but I was so proud of myself, and I was so proud of the show that I put on. So, I feel like that was a little training for what I do now – putting on shows, figuring out how it’s all going to work out.”

    “Fourth of July is probably one of the biggest memories for me, because it’s always during harvest time. And harvest time, being a farmer, is your most important time of the year. It’s always nine-o. It’s always busy, busy, busy, busy, busy, but we always go into town, depending on what field we’re at. A lot of my memories are South Grenada, Colorado, we farm just south of that town, and we go into town and get Mexican food, a great Mexican food place called Shorty’s, and we get tostados and enchiladas and we take them back out to the field. And everybody stops for a second and we eat on the hoods or the tailgates of pickups, and we’re just all out there in the field taking a brief moment to eat dinner and then get back to cutting. And if you’re lucky you’ll see some fireworks from town. Those are some of my favorite memories growing up because you’re all out there working. You’re together, and it’s just the moment of pride, of getting the harvest in and getting to be with your family.”

We get to travel all over the world and see a lot of stuff, and I’ve been to a lot of countries that aren’t like ours and that’s when you really appreciate the fact that you can do whatever you want. As long as you’re willing to deal with the consequences, you can do whatever you want, you know?  [I] appreciate those soldiers who died for us to be sitting here doing this, and we live in the greatest country in the world.”

Had a buddy who had a pontoon and we would always get on the pontoon and you go out and you’d tie all the pontoons together and just have a big time. This was before, I was younger then, the adults were having more fun than we were, you know it was just to go swim in the water and shoot off fireworks. Basically, water tailgating is what it was. And then as we got older, same thing…we would just, us younger kids had our own boat and we had as much fun as the adults.”

Kimberly and I met a young girl that, she’s 21 years old and she has a third baby and her husband has served multiple times overseas. She’s raising these children at home, and doing a great job and the best she can, and he’s serving his country. And he’s making a monstrous sacrifice, but so is she and so are those children, and we just can’t take it for granted. I mean, it’s just a huge commitment that they make, and what an honor. We love to be able to sing for them and entertain them and to say thank you whenever we can.” (Kimberly: “Yeah.”)

We always do it far away and then we light it, and we always run back and watch the fireworks, but that’s probably one of my favorite memories.” MADDIE: “My birthday is July 7th, so I always get built-in fireworks for my birthday, and sometimes we actually celebrate it on the 4th, because there’s fireworks everywhere, so it’s perfect.”

But over in Alabama, that’s where all the firework stands were, and we only had to drive 10, 15 minutes to get to the Alabama line, so we could go get a bundle of fireworks pretty easy. But he would always take a lot of pride in going and finding all the good stuff, and coming back with a  big pile. He’d have his torch out there at the end of the driveway and we’d all eat homemade ice cream and put down towels on the driveway and he’d shoot off fireworks for 30-45 minutes. Such a good time.”

They would actually have the concert in the MAC (McConnell-Talbert Stadium), which was the high school football stadium that Warner Robins and Northside and Houston County shared. I mean, one year they had Wynonna play and then they had Josh Turner one year, Darius Rucker. I mean it was like a big deal, and there’d be 15,000, 20,000 people there, and I think it’s so cool that there’s a little bit of a legacy of people coming together in that town and making something happen, you know? I’ll never forget going to those shows and thinking, I was more proud of what the city had done. I was like, ‘That’s just so cool that they could put together a show like this, an event that everybody will love.”

  • LUKE BRYAN REPEATS SUCCESS OF SOLD-OUT GILLETTE STADIUM.

    Four-time Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan, touted as the ‘consummate showman’ by the Boston Globe, repeated his stadium success story as he performed before a sold-out crowd at Gillette Stadium on Friday night. The “Sunset Repeat Tour” concert was Luke’s fourth appearance in the home of the six-time Super Bowl Champions the New England Patriots is also his most-played stadium. His career headlined stadium concerts now tally at 35.

    Special moments during the show included Luke’s 2019 touring mates Cole Swindell and Jon Langston joining him onstage to perform the 1995 hit “Dust On the Bottle” and the evening’s special guest Brett Young appeared with Luke to perform “Sweet Caroline.” One of the night’s high points came when Patriots favorite Rob Gronkowski strolled on stage playing catch with Luke sending the stadium crowd into fever pitch cheers.

    Before the concert Luke, Cole, Jon and Brett spent some time with NBC’s TODAY Show for a behind-the-scenes look at what it’s like to perform in one of America’s most revered stadiums and Luke’s journey to a stadium headliner. Tune in to NBC’s TODAY Show on Tuesday, July 2 to see the story. Later that week, Luke will perform on NBC’s ‘Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks® Spectacular.’
