NASHVILLE, TN – (May 13, 2015) – Reigning CMA and ACM Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan will debut a new single, “Kick The Dust Up,” next week at country radio and will perform it live on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and on The Voice’s season finale all on May 19th. “Kick The Dust Up” will be available at iTunes on May 19th.
“Kick The Dust Up,” which is also the title of Luke’s new concert tour that launched this past weekend with sellout crowds, was written by Dallas Davidson, Chris Destefano and Ashley Gorley, and is the first single off a new project coming this summer. The eagerly anticipated summer album is the follow up to Luke’s most successful album to date, Crash My Party, which contains six consecutive No. 1 singles, is certified Double Platinum and has currently sold over two million copies with eight million digital downloads.
Luke is also kicking off his show with the new track. “That’s how confident we are in the song being pretty awesome,” he tells USA Today. “We figured the socials would start lighting up and people would start learning the words. Once it hits radio, people will catch on real quick.”
Since the debut of his first album in 2007, Luke Bryan has placed 12 singles at No. 1 and sold nearly seven million albums with 27 million digital tracks from his four studio albums. He has been named Entertainer of the Year by both the Academy of Country Music (twice) and the Country Music Association. In 2014, Luke achieved the best touring year of his career with 1.7 million fans attending his concerts. In early 2015, Luke played his first-ever shows in Europe and on May 22 he will be honored with a summer exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, “Luke Bryan: Dirt Road Diary.”
Luke’s new concert tour, “Kick The Dust Up Tour,” will continue through October and includes seven stadium dates.
