Luke Bryan will release a deluxe edition of his double-platinum album, Crash My Party, on Tuesday, August 12th. The deluxe version was originally a Target exclusive and is now being made available to other retailers, including digital outlets. The album will include four new songs, including “Your Mama Should’ve Named You Whiskey.” Bryan says the title reveals a lot about the song.

“We all know how rough whiskey can be on you, and obviously this guy is getting pretty burned by her,” he said. “It’s a cool, really cool song. I love the style. It’s kinda got that classic verse, and then when the chorus kicks in, it’s just big ole in your face rock, then it drops down to that cool, loping, kinda chilled-out dancing cheek-to-cheek thing. I love it top to bottom.” Continue Reading

Eric Church and Luke Bryan may have grown up in North Carolina and Georgia, respectively, but they spent their Fourth of Julys in much the same fashion – by heading to the lake with family and friends. Luke sings about crashing parties these days, but he was – and still is when his schedule allows – the life of the Fourth of July party.

“Some of my favorite Fourth of July memories were spent on Lake Blackshear down in Georgia with my family,” he said. “I was always kind of in charge of driving home from Tennessee and picking up all the fireworks, and my nieces and nephews always got excited when I rolled in because they knew I had all the fireworks. I miss not getting to do that as much as we used to.”

Country Stars Define Patriotism

As the Fourth of July approaches, country stars are taking time to reflect on what it means to be patriotic. To them, being patriotic means show their support for our servicemen and women.

For Kip Moore, his family ties to the military help him stay humble. “I’m a very, very patriotic person, proud of the country that I live in, and I’m very proud of what those guys do for us each and every day, and I don’t take it for granted one bit,” he said. “My grandparents were in the military, fought wars, and I’ve seen the battle that they go through, just the horror of remembering things. When I start to think that I’m halfway tough, I realize how I’m not one bit when I talk to soldiers when I’m out, and realize the things that they go through. I can’t imagine facing what those guys face every day.”

Dierks Bentley‘s patriotism is tied to both his support of our military and the country he sees from the windows of his bus. “I’m extremely patriotic,” he said. “I love this country, and I love the history of this country. I read books on this country. I spend my time on the road traveling physically throughout the country. The soldiers and their families are constantly on my mind. We work closely with the Wounded Warriors Project. We think about this stuff all the time.” Continue Reading
