Luke Bryan’s latest album is titled ‘What Makes You Country” and he shares his most “country” memory of his own own life, which involves his father's peanut farm.

Luke Bryan released his sixth studio album this past December titled What Makes You Country and he isn’t shy about sharing his claim to his own country roots.

Like many folks who consider themselves “country”, Bryan’s story includes some good ol’ manual labor and working with his father.

Bryan’s father was the proud owner of a peanut mill in south Georgia and, needless to say, employed his son to help with the farming. Bryan can remember peanut dust…everywhere.

“Any time I get the chance to put peanut dust in a song, [I will],” Bryan shared. “I think it’s showed up several times.”

“People are like, all the time, they’re like, ‘How are you riding on your tour bus? Doing shows? Aren’t you just exhausted?’ I’m like, ‘Nah, not really. If you’d like to work for [my father] Tommy Bryan at the peanut mill for three months out of the year, a hundred hours a week, I can give you a crash course in exhaustion. Peanut dust in your ears and your nose and your throat.”

That indeed sounds pretty rough!

“When I get out there on the road, and I think I’m tired, I’m always like, ‘Hey, I could be breathing in peanut dust.’ So, that’s why I write it in songs just to remind me I could be back there any minute.” Bryan admits.

Bryan recently released a music video for his second single off the album What Makes You Country, the single is titled “Most People Are Good”.

Bryan took fans behind the scenes of the music video which features the singer standing in front of multiple green screens that show people of all walks of life.

Most People Are Good
by Luke Bryan

I believe kids oughta stay kids as long as they can
Turn off the screen, go climb a tree, get dirt on their hands
I believe we gotta forgive and make amends
‘Cause nobody gets a second chance to make new old friends
I believe in working hard for what you’ve got
Even if it don’t add up to a hell of a lot
I believe most people are good
And most mama’s oughta qualify for sainthood
I believe most Friday nights look better under neon or stadium lights
I believe you love who you love
Ain’t nothing you should ever be ashamed of
I believe this world ain’t half as bad as it looks
I believe most people are good
I believe them streets of gold are worth the work
But I still wanna go even if they were paved in dirt
I believe that youth is spent well on the young
‘Cause wisdom in your teens would be a lot less fun
I believe if you just go by the nightly news
Your faith in all mankind would be the first thing you lose
I believe most people are good
And most mama’s oughta qualify for sainthood
I believe most Friday nights look better under neon or stadium lights
I believe you love who you love
Ain’t nothing you should ever be ashamed of
I believe this world ain’t half as bad as it looks
I believe most people are good
I believe that days go slow and years go fast
And every breath’s a gift, the first one to the last
I believe most people are good
And most mama’s oughta qualify for sainthood
I believe most Friday nights look better under neon or stadium lights
I believe you love who you love
Ain’t nothing you should ever be ashamed of
I believe this world ain’t half as bad as it looks
I believe most people are good
I believe most people are good
I believe most people are good
