Thomas Luther "Luke" Bryan is a Country Music singer. Bryan got his foot in the door in 2004, co-writing the title track to Travis Tritt's My Honky Tonk History and Billy Currington's 2006 single "Good Directions". From there, Bryan had moderate success with his debut album I'll Stay Me, landing in the top 5 with its debut single "All My Friends Say".Doin' My Thing was his breakout, producing a number 2 hit in "Do I" (co-written by Dave Haywood and Charles Kelley of Lady Antebellum) and his first chart-toppers, "Rain Is a Good Thing" and "Someone Else Calling You Baby". Tailgates & Tanlines, his third disk, brought him to number 4 with "Country Girl (Shake It for Me)", followed by three more number 1 hits: "I Don't Want This Night to End", "Drunk on You", and "Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye". 2013's Crash My Party also sent its title track to the top.Besides his four albums, Luke has released seven digital extended plays with a spring break theme. Bryan is popular with the younger demographic, as many of his songs have a summer-y theme or feel (most notably "Drunk on You").
