For Bryan, CMAs is his kind of night

Tuesday, November 5, 2013 – Luke Bryan will kick start the CMA Awards with an appearance tomorrow morning on Good Morning America, live from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, and will then open The 47th Annual CMA Awards with his recent number one hit That's My Kind of Night.

He will return later in the show to sing his new single Drink A Beer, dedicating this performance to his brother Chris and sister Kelly, whom he lost in 1996 and 2007 respectively.

"This is the coolest sad song ever," said Bryan. "It holds a special place in my heart, and I am honored the writers allowed me to record it."

The song, written by Jim Beavers and Chris Stapleton, is the third single from Bryan's Platinum selling "Crash My Party." Stapleton, who sang background vocals on the track, will also perform them on the CMA Awards. The single can be heard now at country radio.

"It's always amazing to get the news that one of your songs is going to be cut by another artist, and I've been really lucky to have some success with that over the years," said Stapleton. "Luke asked me to sing on the track for his new album, and we've performed it live together, but I'm especially honored he asked me to stand up there with him on the CMA's on Wednesday night."

Bryan is nominated for three CMA Awards, Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist and Musical Event for The Only Way I Know with Jason Aldean and Eric Church.

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, ...
CD review - Farm Tour...Here's to the Farmer Luke Bryan has been in that "hardware" phase of his career for the last few years. There have been several armloads of awards, many on the strength of the high-caliber singles from 2013's "Crash My Party." It might present a challenge to stay grounded. But Bryan has kept himself busy with work for charities (he's embarking on a traditional tour of farms to benefit his scholarship fund), and the use of the EP - this marks his eighth. Many artists use the EP format ...
