Luke Bryan debuted a new single yesterday (Wednesday, August 23rd) called “Light It Up.” It's the first single off a new album due out later this year and was written by Luke and Old Dominion member Brad Tursi. Luke tells us this is the first time he's written with Brad. ["From time to time, you know, it's always nice to throw people that you've never written with in the mix. I've done that before in the past and actually it's worked in my favor and it's always nice to hear other people's approach at writing and take on something and so, yeah, my manager contacted me with kind of some people to try and Brad was one of the people and I'm such a big fan of what Old Dominion does and they work their tails off, so Brad comes out to my house and we kind of get to know each other a little better around the coffee pot and then we go in my songwriting room and start working and he tells me kind of this chorus thing and I remember he had the melody thing like (sings) 'I blew you up in the middle of the night again.' I kind of liked that and we just started rockin' and wrote a song."] SOUNDCUE (:51 OC: . . . wrote a song.)
“Light It Up” is available at all digital retailers now. It's the follow up single to “Fast” which tallied as Luke’s 18th career Number One single and made Billboard chart history when he became the only artist in the 27-year history of the Billboard Country Airplay chart to garner six chart-topping singles from one album. With Kill The Lights, Luke beat his own history as previous albums Tailgates & Tanlines and Crash My Party generated five Number One singles.
Luke will be performing "Light It Up" in concert as his Huntin’, Fishin’ And Lovin’ Every Day tour runs through October and on his ninth annual Farm Tour scheduled to run from September 28th to October 7th.
