Luke Bryan Stretches His Creative Muscles on “I Don’t Want This Night to End”

Luke Bryan is on track to hit #1 soon with his latest single, “I Don’t Want This Night to End.” In one line of the song, Luke sings, “Do anything to make your smile land on my lips, get drunk on your kiss” instead of just saying something like “I can’t wait to kiss you.” That’s just one of example of how Luke works to inject some creativity into writing about topics familiar to country listeners like trucks, farms and love.
He says, “I want to talk about that stuff, but you have to figure out different ways to say it. I think that’s just kind of the whole premise behind that is finding a way to reword things and kind of tickle your ear with things.”
Luke has another instance of that creative approach in a song that will appear on his upcoming Spring Break EP. The line in the song is “I’ll raise myself all the hell I can take,” and Luke says, “That ain’t nothing but ‘I’ll raise a bunch of hell,’ but it’s said different. So, I think that’s kind of what you [want] as a writer — just always pushing.”
“I Don’t Want This Night to End” is included on Luke’s gold-certified album, tailgates & tanlines.
