Luke Bryan is sitting pretty at the top of both the Country Aircheck and Billboard country charts once again this week with his 25th No.1 single, “One Margarita.”
Co-written by Michael Carter, Matt Dragstrem and Josh Thompson, “One Margarita” is a full-blown party track that encourages listeners to let go of their worries and embrace the moment. Filled with tropical vibes, the boozy number even finds Bryan name dropping Bob Marley, Jimmy Buffett and Kenny Chesney.
“’One Margarita’ is like the perfect summertime anthem party song, get on your boat, have a great time. The first time I heard it, I was like, ‘Oh my God, that’s like the catchiest, most fun party song I’ve heard in a long time. So, we knew we had something special with the song,’” Bryan shares. “We get it recorded, and I’m like, ‘Hey! We’ve got Crash My Playa. What better place to put a song called ‘One Margarita’ out and then do the video?’ So, we go to Crash My Playa and we just start shooting it down there. And the video just feels fun. It came together amazing, and it gives fans a little glimpse of what Crash My Playa is if they’ve never been, and hey-it makes you want to have a margarita.”
“One Margarita” is the third consecutive No.1 single from the superstar’s forthcoming album, Born Here, Live Here, Die Here. Out August 7, the project includes 10 tracks and is the follow up to Bryan’s 2017 release, What Makes You Country.
Luke Bryan is set to host CMA Best of Fest, a three-hour look back on some of the best moments of CMA Fest. The show will feature performances by Kenny Chesney, Luke Combs, Eric Church, Maren Morris, Carrie Underwood and more and will air tonight at 8/7c on the ABC Television Network.
