Luke Bryan Details New Album What Makes You Country

Fifteen-song Collection Arrives Dec. 8

What makes you country is what makes Luke Bryan‘s upcoming album so country. So he’s named it What Makes You Country, and it’s set for a Dec. 8 release.

Bryan teamed up with some of Nashville’s finest songwriters, and he said that that’s one of the best perks of his job. “My favorite part of making a new album is getting to collaborate with the songwriting community in this town. It is important to me to continue to push myself to grow on all levels and I feel like we did that on this project,” Bryan said. He co-wrote the title track with Dallas Davidson and Ashley Gorley.

“Making and performing music never gets old and I can honestly say I am having the time of my life. I will be forever grateful to every fan who sings along each night,” he added.

And because his fans and friends mean so much to him, Bryan started a digital campaign asking everyone, “What makes you country?”
