Luke Bryan’s Knockin’ Boots is #1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart followed by American Country Countdown.
Knockin’ Boots is Luke’s twenty third career and twenty first Billboard Country Airplay #1 song.
“I always want to make an album that lets people immerse in it, kind of like you get caught up in a good movie.”
“I’m excited to be part of a movement that’s progressing country music. There’s always gonna be people saying, ‘It ain’t country anymore,’ but I don’t get into that whole deal.”
Huge thank you to fans, radio and my team for this #1. I think this song is so fun and it’s such a blast singing it. Again thank you to everyone who supports me and allows me to do what I love. Shout out to writers @Gordie_Sampson, Hillary Lindsey, and Jon Nite. Love y'all. pic.twitter.com/qBBqqx34mV

“I will always really work hard to write as much as I can, but I also love sitting back and waiting on those big Nashville songwriters to send me some great songs, too.”
Gordie is a Canadian born in Big Pond Nova Scotia.
He has written songs for Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Faith Hill, LeAnn Rimes, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, and Rascal Flatts.
Sampson has received a Grammy Award, a Juno Award, two ASCAP Awards, East Coast Music Awards, and honorary degrees from Cape Breton University and St. Francis Xavier University.
Gordie lives in Nashville with his wife Helen Musial and their daughter Amelie.
“I’m so grateful to radio and the fans. It’s just mind-blowing. This song had me from the first time I heard it. It’s a combination of fun, catchy and sexy, and I love watching how the crowd connects to it at the shows. It is definitely one of my favorites to do.”
Luke continues his Sunset Repeat Tour this fall culminating in a massive stadium concert at Detroit’s Ford Field on October 25.
Between those shows Luke will host his 11th annual Farm Tour. Set this year for six farms in the Midwest. Set to perform Cole Swindell, Mitchell Tenpenny, the Peach Pickers and DJ Rock.
“Growing up in Georgia, my dad was a farmer and we worked in agriculture, so we were always looking up at the sky, checking if rain was in the forecast. That always set the tone for the mood in my household, whether we had rain coming in or not we knew the crops would be good and it was going to be a good week around the Bryan household.”
In January of 2020 Luke is back in Riviera Cancun Mexico for Crash My Playa.
“I used to work at my dad’s peanut mill, and worked 15 hours a day, 6 days a week. So, now, riding around on a nice tour bus and doing shows, you’d have to get picky to have a downside.”

Blanco Brown announced Oct 11 will be the release date for his debut LP Honeysuckle & Lightning Bugs.
The album was inspired by Blanco’s experiences of growing up in Atlanta and rural Georgia. His two biggest musical influences were Johnny Cash and Outkast. Brown calls his brand of music TrailerTrap.
“This album represents everything I stand for and all of the different entities of my life for a long time, I was anxious about releasing my own music, I often wondered what the outcome would be and if people would accept my sound, culture, music and the TrailerTrap lifestyle but I’m finally ready to be my own narrator. I credit my friends, fans and family for rooting me on, giving me the confidence I lacked and propelling me to this moment.”
I waited my whole life for this very moment! 8 years later after creating a sound that complimented both sides of my world… I can finally say, my album is on the way!!!!! #HoneySuckleAndLightningBugs… Click link below to pre-order https://t.co/5Wv4UTRLVX #Blessings pic.twitter.com/XsvU5xyR2Y
