Luke Bryan to Release New Album on 11th Wedding Anniversary: “I’m Sorry, Baby”

Luke Bryan to Release New Album on 11th Wedding Anniversary: “I’m Sorry, Baby”

Luke Bryan got his wife, Caroline, a big ol’ diamond ring for their 10th wedding anniversary on Dec. 8, 2016.

This year, Luke may have to get Caroline the matching necklace.

Luke is set to release his sixth studio album, What Makes You Country, on Dec. 8—yup, his 11th wedding anniversary.

Album release week will take Luke to New York City to make the media rounds, which means he won’t be spending a romantic evening at home with the wifey.

“So I am very good about anniversaries and stuff like that, but when we were planning the album and putting it out, we were throwing all these dates around,” said Luke to Nash morning show Ty, Kelly & Chuck. “I’m at the house, and I’m like, ‘Yeah, Baby, I’ll be up in New York and the album comes out the eighth.’ She looked at me and goes, ‘Hmm, interesting day for an album release.’ And I said, ‘I’m sorry, Baby.’ And then you try to spin it. ‘Well, Baby, just come to New York and we’ll eat great food and we’ll walk and go look at people at Rockefeller Plaza.’ She’s like, ‘You work 20 hours a days during album release [week] . . . but I’ll be there.’”

Listen to Ty, Kelly & Chuck on Oct. 25 at 5:30 a.m. CT and 8:30 a.m. CT to hear Luke explain his anniversary/album release predicament.

Luke Combs Gets 11th Number-1 with “Forever After All”

Congrats to Luke Combs – his song “Forever After All” is sitting at number-1 on the Billboard Country Airplay Chart!

This is Luke’s 11th consecutive number-1 song – and the 6th track off of his deluxe album What You See Ain’t Always What You Get to capture the top spot.

After hitting number-1 Luke says, “It’s pretty crazy having this song go number-1, being the sixth number-1 off this album. It’s incredible, and it’s all thanks to the fans. We have a really great team – from management, to label, to band and crew, and we’ve been lucky that country radio has embraced us, which means the world to me. I’m forever grateful to everybody that’s helped get my songs out there. I just wanna say thanks to everybody, and I never take it for granted.”
