Luke Bryan releases second single
Friday, November 16, 2007
– Luke Bryan will see if he can duplicate the success of his fist single with his second one, "We Rode in Trucks," which was just released.
Bryan enjoyed a hit with "All My Friends Say" from his debut disc.
"This song is probably the most representative of me as an artist because it talks about growing up in Georgia. We wrote the song probably about a month after I arrived in Nashville."
"I wasn't sure if it would make the album, but I just woke up one night and said, 'If I do not put this song on the album, I wouldn't be able to call it my first album.'"
Bryan wrote the song with Roger Murrah and Jim McCormick.
"We get so many compliments on the song, and what's neat is we'll do it in New York or Portland or anywhere we are, and people say 'Ah, that takes me back.' That's the best compliment in the world when you can get people from the big city to like such a rural type of song."

After all, we might need a diversion from the international health crisis now and then. The release opens with "Knockin' Boots," which is how modern cowboys describe sexual intercourse. A few songs later, Bryan gives us the drinking song (and single) "One Margarita." In between, "What ...
Luke Bryan aims to please often, and that rarely goes unpunished. The Georgia native has a strong voice, some songwriting skill and even legitimate farming cred. But Bryan still gets pegged as the face of corporate country - that pandering beast packaging artists for mass consumption. The label can be unfair, but not wholly undeserved - Bryan has a long track record, for instance, of records about chasing girls and Bud Lights. In truth, he married his college sweetheart and they share a quiet, ...
