Luke Bryan Has First No. 1 on Top 20

Aug. 28, 2009 — Luke Bryan’s "Do I" video is built around scenes from an elevator — appropriate because he rides all the way to the top for the first time in his career on this week’s edition of GAC’s Top Twenty Countdown, hosted by Suzanne Alexander.

"Do I" is the first single from his sophomore album, Doin’ My Thing, set for release Oct. 6, and Luke fully intends for this CD to out-perform the last one.

"My first album had great hits and it sold well, but everything about that album is beatable," he says. "We wanted to make a bigger sounding record, something that moved a little down the road from the first record. We wanted to show my growth vocally and lyrically."

Luke wrote "Do I" with Lady Antebellum members Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood, but it’s not the first time one of his songs had a strong connection to another artist. Luke also wrote "Good Directions," which was a No. 1 single for Billy Currington, who Luke displaces this week at No. 1.
