Luke Bryan released “Kick The Dust Up” in May of this year. The single served as the lead single from his fifth studio album Kill The Lights, which was released in August. “Kick The Dust Up” ended up being yet another smash #1 hit for Bryan, which isn’t surprising considering the fact that they seem to just hand #1’s out consistently to the Bro’s of country, no substantial hit needed. Bryan can basically get away with releasing any old song regardless of how awful it is, and still hit #1 due to his rabid fan base. Let’s be honest here, “Kick The Dust Up” was not only not country, but genuinely an awful song, and Bryan’s second single, “Strip It Down” was even worse!
“Strip It Down” continued Bryan’s #1 streak for the record, proving that Bryan can do no wrong as far as the industry is concerned. In my opinion, the only accolade that “Strip It Down” deserves is for “sleaziest song of the year”, but that’s a whole other can of worms. Bryan has recently announced that his third single will be the much-talked about “Home Alone Tonight”, which features Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild.
