In four weeks, it will be lights out as Luke Bryan unleashes his fifth studio album, Kill the Lights, the follow-up to his most successful project to date, Crash My Party.
Bryan revealed some of the finer details on the project earlier this week. The album was produced by Bryan’s longtime producer and buddy Jeff Stevens and also Jody Stevens and boasts 13 tracks of addictive and hooky musical goodness.
Bryan himself was a co-writer on six of those 13 tracks, including the title track. Other songs on the project were penned by heavy hitters like Dallas Davidson, Ashley Gorley, Chris Destefano, Rodney Clawson and Luke Laird. Two of my favorite female writers, Jaida Dreyer and Jessie Jo Dillon, also have cuts on the album.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The album also features a duet with Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild, and Target stores will be carrying a deluxe edition of Kill the Lights with three bonus tracks (all co-written by Bryan). On the album’s release day, Bryan will rock the stage on Good Morning America as part of their 2015 Summer Concert Series.
In the meantime, Bryan is burning up the highway with his Kick the Dust Up tour which continues through October.
