Luke Bryan has finally voiced his opinion on the term "bro-country" and we're sure y'all will want to hear what he has to say.
In a recent phone interview with Cleveland.com, Luke's true feelings on the term were revealed, and let's just say, he's not a huge fan.
In reference to the term "bro-country" Luke says, "I take a little offense. I feel the initial term 'bro-country' was created to be kind of a little degrading to what's popular, to what country artists are doing right now." He goes on to say, “It’s frustrating because whichever artists may or may not get labeled as that, they’re well beyond that. For people to call me the father of it, well, whatever. It just seems like a term that was invented to cheapen me as an artist.”
And it's not only his music that he defends in the interview, he feels that the term is degrading to his fans as well. Luke says, “My fans are there because my version of music is what they love, and that’s what I’m all about. When people say ‘Luke Bryan fans are nothing but beer drinkers,’ that makes me mad because I know they’re more than that. They are the people who make this country go round and round.”
The current ruling ACM & CMA Entertainer of the Year thinks that his newest album, Kill The Lights, is the best one yet. He says in the same interview, "I think it's the best album I've done. ''Kill the Lights' is where I needed to be in my career and in my life. It defines a little bit of all for me."
But despite what is said, Luke is thankful for the opportunities he has been given. He says, "My life has been super blessed, blessed way more than I ever deserved. Everybody out there is dealing with challenges, and these are my challenges. I have to keep a positive attitude and help people draw inspiration for how I conduct myself."
And this is what country music is all about.
