“‘Born Here Live Here Die Here’ is an artistic statement”
“it’s also Bryan’s musical vision at its best — using specific details to evoke a cherished way of life”
“the album also continues the sly expansion of country music that Bryan helped set into motion nearly a decade ago”
Country music Superstar and four-time Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan debuted his seventh studio album BORN HERE LIVE HERE DIE HERE at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart this week, making it his sixth consecutive appearance in the top position. The album also becomes Luke’s eleventh top 10 album on Billboard’s Top 200, since his first appearance with 2009’s DOIN' MY THING.
“This album has been in the works for a longtime,” says Luke. “I'm grateful to my fans for waiting for it, for radio playing the songs that allowed me to debut a new album with three #1 hits and to my entire team for hanging in there and staying just as enthusiastic about this music as me.”
Variety wrote of the album, “Bryan, his producers and the songwriters have the creation of earworms down to a science…. it’s also Bryan’s musical vision at its best — using specific details to evoke a cherished way of life.”
“The title of Luke Bryan’s new album, BORN HERE LIVE HERE DIE HERE, nods to the humble pleasures of a quiet life, the type of small-town experiences that the country superstar has made his songwriting bedrock, even as he’s played stadiums across the United States,” claimed Billboard Magazine. Also sharing the album’s release after being delayed for four months due to the pandemic, “thankfully returned to beam us back into a simple, straightforward lifestyle.”
The Los Angeles Times said, “the album also continues the sly expansion of country music that Bryan helped set into motion nearly a decade ago.”
