Luke Bryan could be the biggest star in country music right now. I was just in Nashville checking out the Hall of Fame and he had a new exhibit, which seems crazy, but then you realize that he has been around for nearly a decade now.
Luke is coming off a huge album that had six hit singles. And now his next single is out and it sounds like another hit.
Kick The Dust Up – Luke Bryan
Luke is pushing things a little further in country music. He’s mixing a little hip hop influence into these songs, but the lyrics are about the country things we’ve become accustom to on country radio. We have cups full of beer, jars full of clear and fields full of people.
The song is catchy. It’s a clap-along type of song that will have people rocking and grooving in the stands at the concerts this summer. That’s something Luke sure knows how to do. He’s kind of becoming the way people can get away from their jobs during the week to have some fun on the weekends.
Luke gets a little bit of flack for songs like this. He’s definitely pushing the boundaries, but a lot of people are loving this kind of music. It makes you feel like dancing and having a good time and that’s something a lot of people connect with and want.
So it’s working for Luke and this one is also a little different in that it’s not a super fast song. It’s kind of a groover, if that’s a word.
I like it.
