NASHVILLE, TN – January 18, 2008 – Luke Bryan is already seeing 2008 as an even bigger and better year than 2007. Coming off a #2 debuting album I’LL STAY ME; a Top 5 debut single “All My Friends Say;” a multiple-week #1 single he wrote for Billy Currington “Good Directions,” being chosen as Billboard’s 2007 country artist to watch and landing on “Best of 2007” lists for: Chicago Tribune, Atlanta Journal Constitution, Clear Channel Online Music & Radio to name a few, Bryan’s star continues to rise as he’s been given the opportunity of a lifetime being invited to be part of three major tours of country music’s biggest artists. He will be part of some of Kenny Chesney’s “Poets & Pirates” stadium dates; Trace Adkins’ “American Man” tour and Dierks Bentley’s “Throttle Wide Open” tour.
“There really are no words to explain what it means to me to be part of three of the biggest country tours of 2008,” beams Luke Bryan. “Kenny, Trace and Dierks are artists I have looked up to, admired and really studied as far as how they put on a great show and treat their fans. I’m just so appreciative that they are giving me this shot.”
The Georgia native’s current single “We Rode In Trucks” made an amazing 12 spot leap (#55 to # 43) on the country singles chart this week as it makes a strong connection with radio listeners.
Bryan, who the USA Today calls “the real deal,” is also scheduled to make his first national television performance on “Fox & Friends” Wednesday, Jan 23 to perform his current single “We Rode In Trucks” before heading to Bangor, Maine for the opening night of Trace Adkins’ “American Man” tour.
