Luke Bryan released his new song, “Knockin’ Boots,” this morning (March 29th), and the tune has all the makings of a huge summer hit. The four-time Entertainer of the Year, who has two nominations for the upcoming ACM Awards as Entertainer of the Year and Song of the Year for “Most People Are Good,” couldn’t wait to record the song, written by Hillary Lindsey, Gordie Sampson and Jon Nite. “Knockin’ Boots” is the first of new music coming from Luke by the end of 2019. “Knockin’ Boots” is available at all digital retailers now and can be found HERE
“From the moment I heard this song I knew I had to get in the studio and record it,” said Luke. “I just couldn’t get it out of my head. This may be the fastest turn around I have ever done with a song.”
Luke teased the song on his socials last night.
“Knockin’ Boots” follows Luke’s recent 22nd career #1 single “What Makes You Country,” the fourth consecutive #1 song from his What Makes You Country album.
The Georgia native said he’s looking forward to playing the song on the road this summer. “This song sets the tone for my new album because it’s a different sounding song for me. The production is really, really sparse, and it really is open, and it breathes and it kinda lets me tell the story about the song,” says Luke. “The main thing about the song is it’s just fun. It’s gonna be so fun to have out for the summer tour.”
This spring Luke continues at the judges table for the second season of ABC’s American Idol and will launch his “Sunset Repeat Tour” on May 31 with special guests Cole Swindell and Jon Langston. The tour will include Luke’s third trip to Gillette Stadium having performed two shows in July 2016 as part of his “Kill The Lights Tour” and his Foxborough debut in August 2014 in front of a sold out crowd on his “That’s My Kind Of Night Tour.”

“This song sets the tone for my new album because it’s a different sounding song for me. The production is really, really sparse, and it really is open, and it breathes and it kinda lets me tell the story about the song. The main thing about the song is it’s just fun. It’s gonna be so fun to have out for the summer tour, and certainly to be the first single off the new album, it sets the tone for the album of ‘We’re gonna have some fun on the new album.’”
