Luke Bryan

Five-Time Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan, fresh off a West Coast run on his “Proud To Be Right Here Tour” including a sold-out performance in Los Angeles’ Staples Center, is celebrating with his UMG Nashville team today as his latest single “Up” debuted this week as the most-added song in the nation at country radio.

“Up” is the sixth single from Luke’s #1 debuting BORN HERE LIVE HERE DIE HERE album that already contains five consecutive #1 singles. The song was written by Jeremy Bussey, Taylor Phillips and Bobby Pinson and Music Row magazine claims it’s, “Beautifully produced, with airy, echoey space around Luke’s vocal. The melodic song holds snapshots of simple country living. Faith is the key. An endearing single with a new sonic direction for this superstar.”
