Luke Bryan has a hard 1st album to follow up “Tailgates & Tanlines,” but he says he’s not worried!

“There’s always gonna be guys who are just wonderful singers and probably shouldn’t be writing songs,” Luke told the Los Angeles Times.”Then there’s always gonna be guys who move up the ranks writing. I don’t know what’s healthier or what’s the best thing — probably whatever yields the best songs. George Strait, he’s never really written, but he certainly changed the face of country music for many decades; he defined a generation. But then Toby Keith, he’s written nearly every song he’s ever taken part in. It’s about the artist. Jason Aldean is a masterful guy at finding great songs and making great recordings; he’s the most successful guy in our format right now. And he [doesn’t write]. It’s about recognizing what you enjoy — and what you’re good at — and capitalizing on that.”

“Dirt Road Diaries” will be Luke’s first headlining tour! It will start in January and the opening acts are Thompson Square and Florida Georgia Line. has dates and tickets for sale.
