Today, Luke Bryan released, “Build Me a Daddy,” off his upcoming album, Born Here Live Here Die Here. This song is a great example of pure Country Music. The amazing thing with genuine Country Music, is that it tells a story. This song does a great job at telling this specific story. From the very beginning of the song, you can tell how much emotion he puts into the song. You can tell that he is feeling every word and every lyric. Unlike in some of his other songs, his voice just sounds extremely vulnerable, which is very appealing. This song will grip at your heartstrings and have you singing along with him. There is no doubt that this song will sky rocket to the top of the country charts, especially since Father’s Day is in a couple of weeks.
Luke shows off a different side to him here and it pays off in this song. If you are already a fan, or just looking for some great music by a very accomplished artist, check out Luke Bryan below!
