Spring break means new EP from Luke Bryan
Tuesday, January 25, 2011
– Luke Bryan will release his third spring break themed EP - "Spring Break 3...It's A Shore Thing" - on March 1.
The four-song EP, all co-written by Bryan, features If You Ain't Here To Party, Faded Away, Love In A College Town and the title track. Bryan released his first spring break EP in 2009 followed by last year's "Spring Break 2...Hangover Edition."
"Are you kidding me? This is one of my favorite times of the year," said Bryan. "I get to let loose, write new songs that are a little out of the box, play on the beach for two days and have fun with the fans during one of the best times of their lives."
This year Bryan will perform March March 8-9 at Spinnaker's Beach Club in Panama City, Fla.
Bryan hit the road earlier this month opening for Rascal Flatts on their Nothing Like This tour and later this spring he'll open for Tim McGraw's Emotional Traffic tour.

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, ...
