Luke Bryan Releases New Single, ‘Play It Again’
Luke Bryan has released the fourth single from his platinum-selling ‘Crash My Party’ album. ‘Play It Again,’ which was written by Dallas Davidson and Ashley Gorley, proves that the Georgia native remains one of the best storytellers in this era of country music superstars.
“Soon as I sat down I was fallin’ in love / Tryin’ to pour a little sugar in her Dixie cup / Talkin’ over the speakers in the back of that truck / She jumped up and cut me off,” is a classic Bryan delivery. But while the song might not be the most poignant love song, the 37-year-old says that isn’t necessarily his goal.
“Relatability to a country audience,” he tells The Boot is his focus of each tune. “How much they can relate to it and how much they can plug it into their life and make it be their life. That’s it. It doesn’t have to be a style of a song. Does the country music fan relate to it and is it talking about their way of life?”
Clearly Bryan is headed in the right direction. ‘Crash My Party’ debuted at the top of the charts, and has already spawned three No. 1 singles, including the album’s title track.
Bryan is currently crossing the country on his That’s My Kinda Night Tour, which has already sold out several venues, including two stops at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. He just wrapped up his two-day run at Florida’s Spinnaker’s Beach Club Wednesday (March 12), as part of his annual Spring Break-themed free shows to help celebrate the release of his sixth Spring Break EP, ‘Spring Break 6…Like We Ain’t Ever.’
