Five-Time Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan is releasing a sixth single from his BORN HERE LIVE HERE DIE HERE album. “Up,” written by Jeremy Bussey, Taylor Phillips and Bobby Pinson, will impact country radio on October 11. Get the album including “Up” HERE.
“‘Up’ is a song that just checks all the boxes for a country song to me,” said Luke. “It talks about what I love and what’s dear to me. About my home and my faith. Add to that the fact that the songwriters used just a simple word as ‘up,’ to create so many images is pretty special.”
“Up” appears on the Deluxe edition of Luke’s BORN HERE LIVE HERE DIE HERE album. All five previously released singles have reached #1: “Waves,” “Down To One,” One Margarita,” “Knockin’ Boots,” and “What She Wants Tonight.”
This marks the second time Luke has released six singles deep off one album. His 2015 Kill The Lights record contains six consecutive #1 singles: “Kick The Dust Up,” “Strip It Down,” “Home Alone Tonight,” “Huntin’ Fishin’ & Lovin Everyday,” “Move,” and “Fast.”
Luke’s BORN HERE LIVE HERE DIE HERE album debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart last summer, making it Luke’s sixth consecutive appearance in the top position at the time of release. The album became his eleventh top 10 album on Billboard’s Top 200 since his first appearance with 2009’s DOIN’ MY THING.
