Luke Bryan Hits the Road with Room to Grow

Luke Bryan is at the top of his game and currently on the road with his Dirt Road Diaries Tour. At a recent stop in Indiana, Luke took Cindy Watts from The Tennessean on a tour of his successful country music career which includes bringing his family on the road with him and knowing it all won’t be gone in the blink of an eye.

“It’s put everything on a bigger scale,” Luke says of the success that stemmed from his previous album, Tailgates & Tanlines.” It’s given me the ability to headline. It’s made radio want to play whatever I send them, which is amazing. It’s made fans want to buy albums, come to headlining shows. It’s upped the ante. When that third album comes along, you oughta be hitting your stride and it made us hit our stride perfectly. I couldn’t draw it in the ultimate plan any better.

However, Luke wasn’t overly confident about his name being on the top of the bill…Would the tickets sell? Could he really do it? His lack of confidence made him pull back the magnitude of the tour.

“We’re not going to build some galactic spaceship and spend $200,000 a night putting on a show. At the end of the day, one spotlight and me doing my job as an entertainer should be enough to hopefully make it a great show. I want fans to know we’re going to build it each year, and everytime they come to a show, they’re going to see something that keeps them wanting to come back for years.”

Luke has felt confident enough though to build a farm for his family. Making Franklin, Tennessee feel a lot more like home.

“I hope I can create a world where they dream to work toward too,” Luke says of his boys Bo, 5, and Tate, 3.

There farm will be complete with fishing pond, chickens, and a garden. Luke plans to teach his boys to get their hands dirty and the value of hard work…not just on the road but in the back yard too.

You can catch Luke Bryan on the Dirt Road Diaries Tour this year.  His new album, Crash My Party, hits stores tomorrow.  Visit for more info.
