Luke Bryan sings the story of many aspiring artists in “The Land of a Million Songs.”
The country superstar opens up about the emotional track in a new interview with Nashville reporters, revealing why the song he co-wrote with Jeff and Jody Stevens about the struggles of making it in the music business is his best ever.
“I just started crying in the bed,” Luke says of when he first heard the finished song. “I called Jeff, and I said, ‘Guys, I really believe this is one of the best songs that I’ve ever written. I couldn’t be more proud of a song, and what you guys did with.’”
“The Land of a Million Songs” details the dreams, sacrifices, failures and successes of an aspiring musician.
“You were hooked with your daddy’s hand-me-down flat top/The first time that you made your first love cry/And the words you wrote were running from her eyes/Down on the paper, made you feel so alive/So you packed up your pickup and crossed that Tennessee line,” Luke sings in the first verse.
