Our March 2014 cover story on Luke Bryan explains how the country star balances between being a songwriter performer.
Listen to songs from over the course of his career to follow his evolution.
We start with two songs he wrote for others: his first “cut” “Good Directions” and his first No. 1 as a writer, “Honky Tonk History.” You can hear the traditional country music influence in both.
The next three songs were co-written By Bryan for his own albums. Finally, we have “Goodbye Girl” and “Roller Coaster” from Bryan’s latest album, where did did much less writing in order to focus on his role as artist.
