Luke Bryan is set to release his sophomore Capitol Records Nashville album, Doin’ My Thing, on Oct. 6. The follow-up to his No. 2 debut, I’ll Stay Me, that produced the hit singles “All My Friends Say” and “Country Man,” is being driven by Bryan’s current ballad “Do I” which is steadily climbing the country charts. It is at No. 23 this week on MusicRow’s Country Breakout chart.
“I can’t wait for my fans to hear my new record,” says Bryan. “I have wrapped 3 years of touring, hard work and most importantly meeting fans and I think all of that growth is reflected on this album. Doin’ My Thing will make my die hard fans very happy and hopefully will reach out and grab some new fans. I am very proud of the music on this album and can’t wait to get it out there!”
The Georgia native had a career making 2008 with two major award nominations including the CMT Breakthrough Video of the Year nomination and his first nomination from the Academy of Country Music for “Best New Male Artist.”
Bryan, an avid hunter and fisherman, is also serving as the 2009 honorary chairman for National Hunting and Fishing Day taking place Sept. 26—a week before his album release. It is an annual celebration to remind the public that hunters and anglers often lead wildlife and outdoor conservation efforts. Hunting and fishing licenses, plus special taxes on related equipment generate more than $1.75 billion per year for the cause.
