Capitol NashvilleLuke Bryan is ready to put the “degrading” term “Bro-country” to rest. In fact, he takes offense to that label being given to his music at all.

Luke tells Cleveland’s The Plain Dealer,” It’s frustrating because whichever artists may or may not get labeled as that, they’re well beyond that. For people to call me the father of it, well, whatever. It just seems like a term that was invented to cheapen me as an artist.”

Lee says, “We booked some shows. Some of them are just small clubs. Made it happen, because I have to be able to say I did it.”

Though it may seem like a lot of work, Lee thinks it’s all worth it to see as many fans …read more
