Luke Bryan’s ‘Strip It Down’ Becomes 14th No. 1 Hit
The sexy song, with lines like, "Strip it down, strip it down / Back to you and me, like it used to be / When it was an old back road with an old-school beat / Cowboy boots by your little bare feet," has an equally alluring music video, which shows two couples falling in love all over again by switching places with each other.
"Strip It Down" is the second chart-topping single from Kill the Lights, following "Kick the Dust Up." Bryan penned the song with Jon Nite and Ross Copperman.
"It was the first time I had ever gotten together to write with those guys. We just wanted to try some new songwriters and see what happened," Bryan explains. "Ross and Jon rode out to my house, out to the farm ... In my guest house, I have a little songwriting area, and I hadn't written up there that much, so we kind of huddled up in there one evening, wrote a couple songs.
"Toward the end of the writing appointment, Ross started playing something on the piano that he had been working on, and it's the piano melody you hear on "Strip It Down,"" Bryan continues. "Once I heard that melody, I was like, 'This thing sounds really sexy and something like I've never done,' so we spent a couple more hours working on it."
Bryan is nominated for two 2015 CMA Awards, for Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year. His 2015 Kick the Dust Up Tour will wrap up on Oct. 30 in Detroit, Mich., and he'll embark on his 2016 Kill the Lights Tour in mid-February.
