Audio / Luke Bryan talks about the title track of his new Spring Break album, Checkin’ Out.


Luke Bryan (Checkin’ Out) OC: …the album. :47
“‘Checkin’ Out’ is kind of a tricky name for the last Spring Break album, but the song ‘Checkin’ Out’ it’s kind of like checking into…the payoff line is checking in to like a good time but checking out of kind of reality in the real world, and it’s kind of involving – anyway, it’s a fun song. We took a different route on this one. We typically go big drums, big guitars, big instruments and we kind of did an acoustic version of this thing. Really, really broke down. We did put an electric guitar in it. But it was fun to let the band just kind of jam and pick and I think it turned out great and it obviously was a song that was the right song for the title of the album.”
