Capitol Nashville superstar Luke Bryan is riding high as 2017 comes to an end, as his new album What Makes You Country is poised to make a No. 1 debut on the Top Country Albums chart as well as the Billboard 200 following its Dec. 8 release. ?
Critics are calling the sixth studio record the best of his career, with many pointing to “Land Of A Million Songs” as one of the top tracks. In a Billboard-exclusive video, Bryan talks about what inspired the song -- which has a deep meaning to him and his beginnings.
“'Land Of A Million Songs' tells the story and the struggles of Nashville songwriters and Nashville artists," Bryan tells Billboard of the tune. "To call Nashville the' land of a million songs,' it's probably the land of ten million songs when you look at the history and the heroes. I think about [Kris] Kristofferson and Willie [Nelson] and all these guys when I hear this song, struggling and paving the way for somebody like me."
