Luke Bryan: My Dirt Road Diary
features a new song Luke co-wrote with Luke Laird and Josh Osborne in honor of his late brother Chris. “Songs You Never Heard” is an ode to his brother who was always Luke’s biggest supporter of chasing his musical dreams. Chris was someone who shared his love of country music, going to concerts and listening to Clint Black, George Strait, Keith Whitley, and more, and who would no doubt be by Luke’s side to this day. But Chris never got to hear any of Luke’s own hit songs. “Songs You Never Heard” is available digitally HERE.

Audio / Luke Bryan says his new song "Songs You Never Heard," has a huge connection to his new docuseries.


Luke Bryan (Songs You Never Heard) OC: …George Strait. 1:27
“So it’s very tied into the documentary. When we wrote it, we didn’t know it was going to be, but the actual docuseries, documentary actually kind of made the song be born because Luke Laird and Josh Osborne were on the road with me, I guess three years ago and (Michael) Monaco was going through some editing of the documentary. And Luke and Josh were watching it and they were educating themselves on my past. And so we sat down and started working on a song. I had the idea of gosh, has anybody ever written something about losing someone…and since my brother passed, there’s been all these life-changing songs that I knew my brother would have loved, would’ve loved every second of. So, that was the main thing and we wrote it with that. And so as it really started working in conjunction with the documentary, we decided to really feature the song and loved how it turned out. It’s just such a special song that I think people can relate to because there’s somebody that lost somebody that their connection was an Atlanta Braves game and when the Braves hit a homeroom, they’re like I wish my brother were here to watch that homerun. Well, with me, I’m like, I wish my brother was here to hear that George Strait song.”
