Luke Bryan has scored a second week at the top of the country charts with the summer smash and his 27th No. 1 song, “Waves.”
The song was written by Zach Crowell, Ryan Hurd and Chase McGill and is the fifth #1 single off Luke’s BORN HERE LIVE HERE DIE HERE album.

Luke told Billboard, “It’s crazy to know we are five singles deep off the ‘Born Here Live Here Die Here’ album. The longevity that country radio and my fans have given my career truly means a lot. I have never taken for granted that I get to make my living doing something that makes me so happy. Thank you for this #1 and loving a song about summer love!”
“Waves” debuted at country radio in April as the most added song in the nation and Luke performed it for the first time on television on Good Morning America to promote the release of the deluxe edition of his BORN HERE LIVE HERE DIE HERE album. Combined, those projects boast FIVE #1 singles: “Waves,” “Down To One,” “One Margarita,” “What She Wants Tonight,” and “Knockin’ Boots.”
Luke Bryan (Waves) OC: …I heard it. :21
“’Waves’ is a song about kids falling in love during the summer and just all the images and everything about just how beautiful that summer love is and how the emotions just keep coming in waves. ‘Waves’ is kind of a play on words, and I feel in love with the song the second I heard it.”
