Luke Bryan hosts songwriters' charity event

Wednesday, September 10, 2008 – Luke Bryan will head home to Georgia to host his first charity songwriter's event on Oct. 5. The event, in honor of his late brother and sister Chris Bryan and Kelly Bryan Cheshire, will benefit the Lee Branch YMCA of Leesburg, Ga.

Since Chris' death, I've been waiting for the right charity event to do, and now with Kelly's passing, this event seemed like the perfect fit, said Bryan. It is something I can do that will honor them and, at the same time, benefit the people in my hometown which is what I know Chris and Kelly would have wanted.

In addition to Bryan, who has co-written the number one single Good Directions, his own top five All My Friends Say and current hit Country Man, the songwriters who have volunteered their time are Dallas Davidson (Put A Girl In It and Honky Tonk Badonkadonk), Jim McCormick (We Rode In Trucks and Louisiana), Jason Matthews (Must Be Doin' Something Right and Breakdown Here), Jeff Stevens (Carried Away and Back When), and Philip White (I'm Movin' On and I'm A Survivor).

In addition to the concert, there will be a silent auction with all proceeds going to the Lee Branch YMCA. Dierks Bentley, Carrie Underwood, Rodney Atkins, Kenny Rogers, Brooks & Dunn, Montgomery Gentry and others have contributed items.

The original 10 tracks are mostly in the vein of the pop laced chart toppers "One Margarita" and "Knockin' Boots." With writing ...
CD review - Born Here, Live Here, Die Here After taking in Luke Bryan's "Born Here Live Here Die Here," the listener will never guess this full length was released during a pandemic. Maybe that's a good thing. 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 ...
CD review - What Makes You Country 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, ...
