ABTV Country Quarantine Music Sessions 

Luke Bryan has pushed back the release of his new album and  2020 tour due to the coronavirus pandemic. Luke’s new album, Born Here, Live Here, Die Here, was originally set to be released on April 24th. On Tuesday April 27th Luke let his fans know that the release date has been pushed back to August 7th. 

Don’t worry, though.  Luke already has released a few of his new songs from the album to hold us fans over until August 7th. 

One of the songs that was recently released was ‘One Margarita’. Luke comments in a video he shared on social media that this song is just about having fun.

“I have a new song called ‘One Margarita’ and it’s about, ‘hey, drinking some margaritas. Maybe one, maybe two, maybe three. Throwing down a shot here and there. Just having fun, dancing, and being happy you’re in a vacation spot.’”  

We all wish we could be in a vacation spot now, but adding this song to our quarantine playlist can help us imagine our perfect getaway. 

Plus, this is the perfect time to be throwing down “One Margarita, Two Margarita, Three Margarita, shot!” Well, call it our “Quarantita.” 

The next song that was released is ‘What She Wants Tonight’, which is giving us, ‘I Don’t Want This Night To End’, vibes…and we’re here for it! 

With an interview at iheartradio, Luke explains that he hasn’t been this excited about a song in a really long time. 

“’What She Wants Tonight,’ is a song that I wrote at my house with John Knight, Ross Copperman and Hillary Lindsey,” Bryan explains, “it just felt like something that could be playing on the radio and it felt like something that, that’s what women wanna hear. You know, they wanna have a confident guy kind of singing to them in that way. And I hadn’t been this excited about a song in some time.”

We love the song and are excited to hear you perform this live someday! 

Another song that was released was, ‘Born Here, Live Here, Die Here’, (also the title of the album) takes us down the memory lane of our childhoods. 

Not all of us may have grown up with John Deere tractors or dirt roads, but the underlying message of this song is something we can all relate to. 

If you love Miranda Lambert’s song, ‘The House That Built Me’, this track should be added to your Spotify playlist. 

The final song that’s on the album and was released last year as a single track is, ‘Knockin’ Boots’, which has become a number one hit. 

Luke performed this song live at Stagecoach last year and for the Season Finale of American Idol

In an interview with Taste of Country, Luke admits that his fans can’t stop dancing to this song. 

“I look in the aisles and husbands and wives are out there twirling and dancing. It’s kind of a nice little fun dance song, too.” 

This is the perfect song to dance to in your living rooms on a Friday night while we are quarantined (add it to the calendar). 

“Friday nights need to do what Friday nights need to do. That’s the truth.”
