Luke Bryan goes on "Spring Break"
Wednesday, March 4, 2009
– Luke Bryan will release an iTunes exclusive "Spring Break With All My Friends" next Tuesday, containing two new songs.
The EP includes an acoustic version of his top 5 debut it All My Friends Say and two songs he wrote to perform in all the college towns he plays throughout the year - Take My Drunk Ass Home and Sorority Girls.
The release comes on the day he plays a spring break concert in Panama City, Fla. Two days later, he plays the Daytona Beach Hilton in Florida.
Bryan is running a "Spring Break With All My Friends" texting contest where he will perform a show in the winning college town and the winning sorority with the most texts will receive 100 free tickets. For more information and how to enter the contest, go to www.LukeBryan.com
"As a Georgia Southern Sigma Chi alumni, I can guarantee you I've been to a spring break party or two, but this is going to be the best time I think I've ever had on spring break - and I'm not even school anymore," joked Bryan. "This Panama City show coupled with being able to release this Spring Break Party Pack on iTunes on the same day is such a great opportunity to give my fans what they have been asking me for months and months - these two fun crazy college songs Take My Drunk Ass Home and Sorority Girlsthat I wrote really just to play in these college markets. Who knew the demand for these songs would lead to this?'"
The Capitol Records Nashville recording artist is currently in the studio working on his sophomore album scheduled for release later this spring and is currently headlining his Miller Lite-sponsored club tour.

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.

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, ...
