Luke Bryan Defines ‘What Makes You Country’ in New Song

Subscribe to KATP on

Luke Bryan is vocal about the fact that he’s working on new music, and fans can get a listen to a new song presumably called “What Makes You Country,” which Bryan performed acoustic during a recent VIP pre-show hang.

“What Makes You Country” is all about that country life. Bryan sticks up for those who have adopted the lifestyle, no matter where they came from, singing, “People talking about what is and isn’t country / What gives them a right to wear a pair of beat up boots / Is it the size of your tires or your wild ass buddies.” He calls out critics — including his own —who try to define what is and isn’t country, pouring gasoline on a timeless debate about the progression of the genre.

18 Singers Keeping Traditional Country Music Alive

Might be from a city or a little farm town / Whatever kind of square that you drove around / Do you wear it on your sleeve or keep it deep down / You know you gotta let it out,” the singer continues on a track that could draw comparisons to his hit “Huntin,’ Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day,” with Bryan’s backwoods vibe and celebration of humble roots.

Bryan confirmed that he’s “95 percent” done with his upcoming album in an interview during his performance at 2017 WE Fest. A 2017 album is said to be coming out before the end of the year. Bryan’s sixth studio album will serve as the follow up to his record-breaking 2015 project, Kill the Lights.
