To celebrate a state release of his new record, Kill the Lights, Luke Bryan took in the Good Morning America stage in Central Park Friday, Aug. 7, playing some tracks through the new album.
Bryan obviously played the No. 1 hit and lead-off single, “Kick the Dust Up,” but in addition gave viewers the primary live performances from the second single, “Strip It Down.” Before launching into the song, Bryan covers how he co-wrote half the songs about the new album, that she says is surely an improvement through the previous album.
“On Crash My Party I wrote like 40 songs and cut like a couple of ‘em, as well as this one I wrote like 10 and cut, you realize, far more, so I was excited that I got alone album,” he states, admittedly slightly tongue-in-cheek.
Strip It Down – Luke Bryan
Bryan also discussed his kids, including his nephew that they and his wife now manage after his parents’ deaths, and what looking after a 13-year-old boy is a lot like when they can put you in the headlock.
“He got me inside a headlock two nights ago and I’m admitting now,” he addresses you, “you had me. I couldn’t escape.”
The performance featured Bryan with an upright piano, giving an enthusiastic performance on the sexy ballad.
The artist released “Strip It Down” to fans who had pre-ordered the record being an instant download, and in addition released an accompanying lyric video. The sultry tune will certainly make any female Bryan fan swoon.
In promotion for Kill the Lights now, Bryan treated fans to personalized songs written specifically for them via his Twitter page in partnership with Target, including one for Duck Dynasty star Willie Robertson. The store is selling a unique deluxe edition with additional subwoofers songs, now available.
