Luke Bryan Is Working on New Music, But He’s Also Enjoying ‘Taking a Little Breath’

Luke Bryan‘s most recent studio album, Kill the Lights, was released almost two years ago, in August of 2015. The singer says that he is working on a new project — in fact, he’s “probably about halfway through [it]” — while balancing his career with spending time with his family.

“I really have not ever taken a breath since I rolled into this town. So I’m kind of taking a little breath and enjoying that. And then you start having anxiety about not having music out,” Bryan recently told The Boot and other reporters. “So yeah, I’m in the studio and really, really proud of the stuff I’ve got … And that’s the thing: I love going in — the energy in the studio, trying to outdo myself again.”

Bryan has enjoyed six consecutive chart-topping hits from Kill the Lights, including the platinum-selling “Kick the Dust Up” and “Home Alone Tonight,” his duet with Little Big Town‘s Karen Fairchild.

‘I’m just amazed that my radio people, my fans out there — that the cards fell where this happened. At any given moment, another artist has the highest song of the year, and you’re No. 2 and they stay No. 1,” Bryan admits. “I’m just so blessed; I’ve heard it said, having a No. 1 songs is a series of a lot of miracles that happened, whether you’re the writer or whether you’re the artists. I guess six in a row, that’s a lot of miracles, so I’m good in the miracle category.”

Bryan broke a record when he hit No. 1 with his most recent single, “Fast,” in fact: He’s the only artist in the 27 years of Billboard‘s Country Airplay chart to have all six singles from one album reach the top spot on that chart. Although Bryan is grateful for his success, he admits that he is still hungry for more.

“I still want some miracles,” Bryan concedes. “You don’t sit down and it just starts happening. You start getting this energy, and then the next thing you know, people around the record label are like, ‘You realize you might break a record.’ I’m like, ‘Don’t tell me stuff like that. Let’s just put out songs.’ But it’s been fun. It’s been amazing.”

The accolades are nice, Bryan says, but his parents’ support that means the most to him.

“Then my dad calls me, and he’s like, ‘You done broke a record up there, son,'” Bryan recalls. “So that makes you proud, when your dad hears it on the news.”

Bryan is spending much of his summer on the road, headlining his Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day Tour. A list of all of his upcoming shows is available on his website.
