Hailing from rural Leesburg, Georgia, country music superstar Luke Bryan's road to fame started out rocky. His initial plans to pursue a country music career at age 19 were delayed after the tragic loss of his older brother, Chris, in a car accident. The talented vocalist chose to stick close to home and attended Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, Georgia instead of packing up for Tennessee. After being prompted by his father to chase his dreams, Luke Bryan set out for Nashville and began his musical career in the mid-2000s, writing songs for Travis Tritt and Billy Currington. After signing with Capitol Records, he released the album 'I'll Stay Me,' which included the singles "All My Friends Say", "We Rode in Trucks," and "Country Man". The follow-up album 'Doin' My Thing' included "Do I" and the number one singles "Rain Is a Good Thing" and "Someone Else Calling You Baby". 2011's 'Tailgates & Tanlines' includes "Country Girl", and the number one singles "I Don't Want This Night to End", "Drunk on You", and "Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye". Bryan's fourth album, 'Crash My Party,' was released in August 2013 and includes the number one singles "Crash My Party", "That's My Kind of Night", "Drink a Beer", and "Play It Again", and the top 15 hit "Roller Coaster." Luke’s very first headline tour in 2013, the “Dirt Road Diaries Tour,” played for an impressive 1.3 million fans with all dates selling out. His popular Farm Tour is held annually every fall and gives back directly to local farming communities. 'Kill the Lights' is Bryan's fifth studio album and was released on August 7, 2015. The record features singles "Kick the Dust Up", "Strip It Down" and "Home Alone Tonight".
