Fans loved the ballad Do I that Bryan co-wrote with the guys from Lady Antebellum. The tune was a huge hit for Bryan as it kicked off his sophomore album Doin’ My Thing. The album’s second single was Rain Is A Good Thing and it’s currently the top song on the country charts. Luke acknowledged the pouring rain Eau Claire had suffered a day earlier. It was muddy and slippery, but fans loved it when Rain Is A Good Thing came blaring out of the amplifiers.
Luke even previewed the next single from his 2nd album. Someone Else Calling You Baby is the story of a small town guy that believes his ex is with someone else.
