Just in time for the holidays, Luke Bryan is releasing a brand new video for his hit single, “What Makes You Country.”
Directed by Michael Monaco, the new video is a bit of a family affair. Luke enlisted the help of his sons Bo and Tate, his nephew Til and a few of their close friends to be a part of the video.
In the four and a half minute clip, Luke and the boys are sitting around a camp fire when Luke asks what the best part of their day was. Bo’s response? “Best part of my day was catching the bass,” he said.
As the boys interact, they ask their dad if they can go play spotlight in the woods. Hesitant about the request, Luke allows the boys to head out to play, telling them to “be careful and don’t go too far.” But it’s just boys being boys.
That’s when the music kicks in and Luke can be seen in the mountain fields singing about all the different things that make you country.
“I got my dirt road cred when I was twelve / On a no cab tractor hauling them bales / Backing in boats, fishing limb lines / Running bird dogs through the Georgia pines / Step side cover down in peanut dust / Friday night spotlight, and that was us / It might not’ve been you, but I can’t judge / Just be proud of what makes you country,” he sings in the chorus.
Throughout the video, Luke’s boys and friends can be seen having a blast doing things that make them country. They play some football, go fishing, hunt treasures, ride ATVs, play fetch with the dog, get a little dirty in the mud and more—All the things that make each and everyone of us a little country.
Luke will return as a judge on American Idol, on March 3, 2019 on ABC.
