Luke Gives BMI ‘Good Directions’ to Capitol Pub Crawl

When BMI songwriter/artist Luke Bryan stopped by the organization’s Music Row offices Tuesday, August 19, he had a clear mission: With country man delicacies including pecan pie and sweet tea in hand, Bryan spread the good word regarding the highly anticipated 2nd Annual Capitol Pub Crawl.

During his visit, staffers surprised the contemporary honky tonker with a Million-Air Award recognizing more than one million performances of Billy Currington’s “Good Directions,” which Bryan co-wrote. While presenting the award, BMI’s Jody Williams noted the momentousness of the accomplishment, explaining that one million performances is the equivalent of playing the song, back-to-back, for six years. An up-and-comer with a bright future, Bryan’s new album, Country Man, dropped August 14.
