Luke Bryan Releases ‘Kill the Lights’ Tracklisting

luke bryan

Luke Bryan‘s Kill the Lights album hits stores August 7th and it looks like Bro-Country lovers are going to be pretty excited…at least by the looks of the writing credits from the tracklisting. Dallas Davidson, Rhett Akins and Ben Hayslip along with Cole Swindell all make an appearance in the writing credits.

The song I’m most excited to hear, “Home Alone Tonight,” features Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild. I guess I’m hoping for a deep “Do I”-esque song with a bit more depth than a dixie cup or pick-up truck bed can provide. My fingers are crossed, but I’m not holding my breath.

As a long-time Luke Bryan fan, I’ve watched a steady decline in the quality of Luke’s music over the past three albums. I’m hoping that eventually we’ll see some redemption, and start releasing songs that reflect his life and age…

Luke Bryan’s Kill the Lights Track Listing:

1. “Kick the Dust Up” (Dallas Davidson, Chris Destefano, Ashley Gorley)
2. “Kill the Lights” (Luke Bryan, Jody Stevens, Jeff Stevens)
3. “Strip It Down” (Bryan, Jon Nite, Je. Stevens)
4. “Home Alone Tonight” (Feat. Karen Fairchild) (Jo. Stevens, Cole Taylor, Jaida Dreyer, Tommy Cecil)
5. “Razor Blade” (Jeff Hyde, Ryan Tyndell, Rodney Clawson)
6. “Fast” (Bryan, Clawson, Luke Laird)
7. “Move” (Bryan, Michael Carter, Jay Clementi)
8. “Just Over” (Chase McGill, Brad Tursi, Jessie Jo Dillon)
9. “Love It Gone” (Jo. Stevens, Clementi)
10. “Way Way Back” (Bryan, Gorley, Clawson)
11. “To the Moon and Back” (Tom Douglas, Hillary Lindsey, Tony Lane)
12. “Huntin, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day” (Bryan, Davidson, Rhett Akins, Ben Hayslip)
13. “Scarecrows” (Gorley, Trevor Rosen, Shane McAnally)

Target Exclusive Tracks:

1. “Corner Booth” (Bryan, Cole Swindell, Jimmy Robbins)
2. “Little Boys Grow Up and Dogs Get Old” (Bryan, Lane)
3. “Buddies” (Bryan, Davidson)
