Luke Bryan 'Born Here, Live Here, Die Here': Release date, concert venues and where to stream
'Born Here, Live Here, Die Here' will be the country music star's seventh studio album, and it drops on April 24, 2020
Luke Bryan took to social media on the afternoon of January 16 to announce a brand-new album and tour, much to the delight of his millions of followers. The new record 'Born Here, Live Here, Die Here' will be out on April 24, 2020, while the supporting tour will kick off a month after that. "It’s been a little bit since I’ve had the opportunity to put an album out," said the 'American Idol' judge a tad apologetically to his Nut House fans. The 'Most People Are Good' singer has sold over seven million records in the past, but his previous album 'What Makes You Country' was last released in 2017.
In addition to the new music, Luke Bryan announced that he would also be embarking on the Proud To Be Right Here Tour which will commence in Cincinnati, Ohio on May 28. The tour actually takes its name from a lyric in the title track of Bryan’s forthcoming album, 'Born Here, Live Here, Die Here'. The singer's opening support will be three popular country music acts, namely, Runaway June, Caylee Hammack, and Morgan Wallen.

How will it sound?
We actually already know what the new album will sound like, thanks to two previous singles ('Knockin' Boots' & 'What She Wants Tonight'), plus an acoustic snippet of the title track, 'Born Here, Live Here, Die Here' that Luke Bryan played for us on social media. Judging by the live debut of that song (at 6 minutes in), it sounds like it's going to be a good ol' fashioned, proud, heartwarming country album. Think simple, familiar, heart-on-one's-sleeve kinda tunes, anthems, and ballads. "The second I heard this song; I knew it was something I was going to record. Certainly growing up in my hometown, it feels like the perfect song to describe the small town, hometown life,” said Luke Bryan of the title track.
Who will be on it?
Country music megastar Luke Bryan, and while he's being tight-lipped about any guest spots on the album, we suspect a couple of his many musical celebrity friends will be joining him on this one. We do know that the first two singles off the new release were both produced by Jeff and Jody Stevens. 'Knockin' Boots' was written by Hillary Lindsey, Gordie Sampson, and Jon Nite, while Ross Copperman swapped places with Gordie Sampson on 'What She Wants Tonight'. More details are sure to emerge on the album in the next few months.
Where can I listen to it?
You'll be able to pre-order the album off his official site soon, and the album will also be available on Apple Music, Spotify, and YouTube, just to name a few streaming options.
