Album certified Gold by RIAA
Four-time Entertainer of the Year and “American Idol” judge Luke Bryan is set to release a deluxe version of his No. 1, RIAA Gold-certified album “BORN HERE LIVE HERE DIE HERE (Deluxe Edition)” on April 9, adding six new songs to add to the album’s original 10 tracks.
Bryan broke the news of the deluxe album to his fans live on Facebook yesterday and played a few of the songs from the album, including two of the new tunes, "Country Does" and “Waves.” He also talked to People Magazine about his excitement for the new music and the upcoming “American Idol” season, premiering Feb. 14 on ABC.
“We all know 2020 was hard on all levels for many,” he shared. “Things were put on hold in the entertainment business, but it did allow more time to make music and I’m excited to share these six new songs.”
“BORN HERE LIVE HERE DIE HERE” was originally set to release last April but, due to the pandemic, the project was moved to August and debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s top country albums chart, making it Bryan’s sixth consecutive appearance in the top position. The album became his 11th top 10 album on the Billboard Top 200 since his first appearance with 2009’s “Doin’ My Thing.”
The album contains current smash single “Down To One” as well as three No. 1 hits so far: “Knockin’ Boots,” “What She Wants Tonight,” and “One Margarita,” which landed as Bryan’s 25th career No. 1 single and has more than 270 million streams. The “One Margarita” video has over 30 million views on YouTube to date.
