Luke Bryan will try to score the 22nd No. 1 single of his career with the release of “What Makes You Country.”
The tune, which was co-penned by Luke, Dallas Davidson and Ashley Gorley, features the country boy reminiscing about his days growing up in rural Georgia on a working peanut farm, including the chorus: “I got my dirt road cred when I was twelve / On a no cab tractor haulin’ them bails / Backin’ in boats, fishin’ limb lines / Runnin’ bird dogs through the Georgia pines / Stepside covered down in peanut dust / Friday night spotlightin’, that was us / It might not have been you but I can’t judge / Just be proud of what makes you country.”
“What Makes You Country” is the fourth single—and title track—from Luke’s 2017 No. 1 album, following previous chart-toppers “Sunrise, Sunburn, Sunset,” “Light It Up” and “Most People Are Good.”
