Story Behind the Song: Luke Bryan, ‘Someone Else Calling You Baby’
"Someone Else Calling You Baby" was penned by Luke Bryan and his producer, Jeff Stevens, while the two men were traveling together during a tour. Bryan released the emotion-packed song in August of 2010, as the third single from his Doin' My Thing album. The tune became his second No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and peaked just outside the Top 50 on the Hot 100 chart (No. 56). Below, Stevens tells The Boot how the song came to be.
"Someone Else Calling You Baby" was written from that raw emotion that you feel when someone you love rejects you. Just about everybody knows the feeling, and it was easy to write because it's something you never forget when it happens to you. It's one of those powerful, unexpected events that changes your life in an instant.
I was on Luke's bus somewhere out on the road, and he started singing some of the first verse off the top of his head, and I thought, "Yeah, I've been there." We wrote it in just a few minutes -- the big guitar lick and all.
