Luke Bryan thinks bro-country artists have hidden depth. The country music artist revealed his thoughts in a recent interview with The Tennessean.
“I don’t care for defining that era as ‘bro-country,” said Bryan. “I feel like a group of artists focused on hitting the mark on a lot of fun stuff that we loved, that the fans also enjoyed, that became very popular.” Bryan had hit several “bro-country” songs like “Huntin,’ Fishin,’ and Lovin’ Every Day” in 2015 and “Country Girl (Shake It For Me)” in 2011. Bryan’s peers in bro-country include Jake Owen, Brian Kelley, Tyler Hubbard, and Jason Aldean.
Bryan said Garth Brooks inspired him to be dynamic in his presentation, regardless of music style. “Garth taught country music stars how to approach our careers with a rock star mentality. Being rock ‘n’ roll level enormous by selling out football stadiums on multiple nights—and reaching meteoric heights because of it—programmed us to dream of achieving that level of success.” What is your favorite era of country music?
