Luke Bryan tips his hat to the small-town way of life in his new song, “Country Does.”
The song is one of six new tracks featured on the superstar’s forthcoming deluxe edition of his latest album, Born Here Live Here Die Here.
“Country did, as country does/ Long as the salt gets licked and the corn grows thick and the sun comes up/ Country is, as country was/ ‘Round here the good ol’ days ain’t far away ’cause they can’t change us/ Proud of your family, proud of your name/ Proud of the mud runnin’ through your veins/ This ain’t nothing don’t understand the way it was/ But country does,” Bryan sings on the Ross Copperman, Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne – penned track.
The Georgia native previewed the song during a Facebook livestream just hours before its release. During the live event, he also announced plans to release his deluxe album.
“We miss you, we love you…Like I said, I’m so glad y’all get some new stuff from me on April 9,” Bryan told fans.
Out Friday, April 9, Born Here Live Here Die Here (Deluxe Edition) features the album’s previously released 10 tracks, including the chart-topping hits “One Margarita,” “What She Wants Tonight” and “Knockin’ Boots,” plus six brand new cuts.
“We all know 2020 was hard on all levels for many,” Bryan said. “Things were put on hold in the entertainment business, but it did allow more time to make music and I’m excited to share these six new songs.”
