Country music superstar Luke Bryan gives his take on a common argument— what really makes a person truly ‘country’— in his song “What Makes You Country.” The tune serves as the title-track for his forthcoming his sixth studio album, which will drop on Friday, December 8th with pre-orders available now here.
“It’s like, for some reason everybody wants to put you in a category of how country you are,” shared Bryan while inviting fans to share their own stories at whatmakesyoucountry.com. “My thing is, my explanation of that is, we’re all different levels of country, but that doesn’t mean you should be judged for it or whatever. It’s me pontificating and me saying, ‘Let’s don’t pick people apart about [whether] they’re city or country.'”

The What Makes You Country album touts 15 songs, seven of them co-written by Luke himself, including the title track. The album’s lead single “Light It Up,” written by Luke and Old Dominion member Brad Tursi, is the follow up to his 18th career No. 1 single and sixth No. 1 from his Kill The Lights album.
“My favorite part of making a new album is getting to collaborate with the songwriting community in this town” said Luke in a recent statement. “It is important to me to continue to push myself to grow on all levels and I feel like we did that on this project. Making and performing music never gets old and I can honestly say I am having the time of my life. I will be forever grateful to every fan who sings along each night.”
