Dirt Road Diary
Label: Capitol Records Nashville
After Luke Bryan went from songwriter to superstar with upbeat tracks like "Country Girl (Shake It for Me)" and "I Don't Want This Night to End," it should come as no surprise that Crash My Party is a record far more likely to get one going. After opening the LP with some funk bass, computerized drums and hip-hop unhs, Bryan gets down to business, singing about a mixtape that features "a little Conway and a little T-Pain" and rhyming "beautiful" with "cooler full" one song later as if to prove that he's for real. Don't sleep on "Roller Coaster" -- an ode to summer love and steep drops.
