The release of Luke Bryan’s new album has hyped up fans of all genres. The singer is definitely on top in the country world right now, but lovers of any music can appreciate the recently released Crash My Party. The fourth studio album is 13 tracks and has songs about everything from heartbreak, to falling in love, to being a brother. It is currently number one on iTunes albums, and its first and second singles are on the top 10 singles chart.

The album starts out with the second single, “That’s My Kind of Night.” I love this song! It has an upbeat, hip-hop feel, but is all about a country man showing a girl his kind of night. He sings, “All them other boys wanna wind you up and take you downtown, but you look like the kind that likes to take it way out. Out where the corn rows grow, row, row my boat Floatin’ down the Flint River, catch us up a little catfish dinner don’t it sound like a winner, when I lay you down and love you right, yeah that’s my kind of night.”
The next song on the album is “Beer in the Headlights” get it? Like deer in the headlights? Luke is a jokester! It’s cute and of course is about a girl dancing in front of Luke’s truck with her beer. Not a bad night. The song maintains an upbeat tempo as do most on this album.
“Crash My Party” is the third song on the album and the first single from it. Any country fan has surely heard it on the radio over the past few weeks. I can definitely understand why it was the album’s first single. In addition Pisces, love horoscope scorpio and Taurus will hardly get on with Aries. to it being the title song for the record, it really sets the tone of what the rest of the songs are like. It is one of the slower ones.
“Roller Coaster” reminds me a lot of “Faded Away,” from the previous album. Basically it is about meeting someone on a vacation and not knowing what to do after the two of you must separate, it is very relatable.
Maybe it’s just because I’m from best online casino a small town, but “Run This Town” is literally the song from my high school years. I think many people had similar stories like this. This is definitely one of my favorite songs from the record, I love the feel to it, it is also one of the slower ones, along with the song after it, “Drink A Beer.” This song is about losing someone close to you, and just sitting in thought about life and kind of why bad things happen to good people. Luke has always been very clear about his faith and that everything happens for a reason. This is easy to see here.
I think “I See You” will be getting a lot of radio play within the next year, it is about an ex that is impossible to get out of your mind. It has a great melody and lyrics, it’s about as raunchy as the album gets.
“Goodbye Girl” and “Play It Again” are both love stories. One is short-term and the other long-term. The latter is another one of my faves.
“Blood Brothers” is definitely relatable to anyone who has a brother, but especially for two male siblings. It’s a chill kind of jam.
“Out Like That” and “Shut it Down” are two songs that aren’t necessarily stand-outs, but are good quality.
The last song on the album, “Dirt Road Diary” is obviously very meaningful to Luke because he named his tour after it. It honestly finishes out the album perfectly! I would say it’s the best from this record.
Overall, the album is a big step up for Luke from “Tailgates and Tanlines.” These songs stand apart from each other and each tells a story, and there’s not one that is bad. While the stories might be lyrically similar, it’s a heartfelt album that sends a message from small-town life to big-time dreams.
