Luke Bryan’s Tailgates & Tanlines comes out today! This is his follow up to his album “Doin’ My Thing”, which if you may remember had the following number one singles: “Do I”, “Rain is a Good Thing”, and “Someone Else Calling You Baby”. He co-wrote 8 of the 13 songs on this new album, which I gotta say is quite impressive. One of the songs on the album “Tailgate Blues” has backing vocals by fellow country singer Ashton Shepherd. Bryan was quoted as saying, “If you don’t sound good, Ashton Shepherd’ll make you sound bad real quick”. You gotta love a guy with a sense of humor right?
Luke has been touring with Tim McGraw and will be through August, but in September he’ll begin headlining a CMT Tour of Tailgates & Tanlines.
“Too Damn Young”, “Tailgate Blues”, “Been There, Done That” and his current single “Country Girl (Shake For Me)” are my top picks after previewing the album on iTunes. Have you previewed it? Will you be downloading the whole album or just singles?
Tailgates & Tanlines, Luke Bryan
