Like many country artists, Luke Bryan gained his start by writing for other singers. But that early songwriting work helped him land a record deal with Capitol Nashville in 2007. When his debut album I’ll Stay Me arrived that same year, Bryan had co-writing credit on 10 of the album’s 11 tracks.
The combination of his incisive songwriting and high baritone have led to a serious number of no. 1 hits, including 2009’s ‘Rain is a Good Thing’, 2013’s ‘That’s My Kind of Night’ and 2015’s ‘Kick Up the Dust’.
Bryan’s hard work has also led to major accolades. In 2010, he won the ACM Award for Top New Artist and Top New Solo Vocalist. Just three years later, in 2013, the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association named him ‘Entertainer of the Year’.
Bryan opened the restaurant 32 Bridge Food + Drink on Nashville’s Broadway strip, and took that same name, 32 Bridge Entertainment, to start his own record label under Universal Music Group Nashville.
His seventh studio album Born Here Live Here Die Here was released in 2020.
