Lightning Strikes at the End of Luke Bryan’s Pen

How Songwriting Helped Him Throw Back

Now that Luke Bryan’s latest album What Makes You Country is out, and his fans have been living with the new music for a few days, it’s pretty obvious that this one is countrier than most. And it sounds like that was Bryan’s intention his sixth time around.

In a new Esquire video, Bryan calls the new album a throwback back to his roots, and overall, more country. And he also talks about how he looks at the process of songwriting.

“You just want to write songs that are true and real to your life that your fans will truly relate to and believe. I love trying to find those diamonds in the rough, and try to lean on the songwriting community,” Bryan says. “It’s also fun to sit in the room and put my stamp on things. You try to up the ante, too.

You try to become a better writer through all that. You just get in there and make it happen, feel the vibe, and hopefully, you arrive at something you’re proud of.”
