With his 2007 debut, “I’ll Stay Me,” Luke Bryan unapologetically shared his own brand of traditional country music with an ever-growing legion of fans. On his sophomore release, “Doin’ My Thing,” Luke is destined to find an even broader audience. A broader audience indeed as the new project was recently certified gold for sales of over 500,000 copies.
It’s been a heady couple of years since Luke released his critically acclaimed first album. Not only has he scored top ten hits with “All My Friends Say” and “Country Man,” but the singersongwriter celebrated his first two No. 1 songs, “Do I,” the lead single from this album, and “Rain Is A Good Thing,” the second release. Both have also been certified as gold selling singles.
Luke was recently honored with two trophies at the 45th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards where he was named Top New Solo Vocalist and Top New Artist. He calls it “the biggest night in my music career, especially since it was fan-voted. You still have to deliver the songs and play great live shows, but boy, it sure gets the ball rolling.”
