A lot of people would agree that this has been a pretty difficult year. Tragedy has plagued us in the form of devastating natural disasters and deadly crimes. Political dissension seems to be at an all-time high, and it only takes a minute to be on social media to see that hate is more abundant than stars in the sky.
But Luke Bryan has hope.
In a new song released on his YouTube page, Luke reminds us of the fundamental belief that “Most People Are Good.”
With a warm, acoustic guitar strumming out chords and a gentle drum tapping out the rhythm, Luke’s calming baritone paints a picture of the simple pleasures in life and the virtues of hard work, positivity and humility.
“I believe kids ought to stay kids as long as they can /Turn off the screen, go climb a tree, get dirt on their hands / I believe we’ve got to forgive and make amends / Because nobody gets a chance to make old friends,” he sings.
In the chorus, Luke sings, “I believe that people are good and most mamas ought to qualify for sainthood / I believe most Friday nights look better under neon or stadium lights / I believe you love who you love, ain’t nothing you should ever be ashamed of / I believe this world ain’t half as bad as it looks / I believe most people are good.”
We believe, too!
“Most People Are Good” is part of Luke’s upcoming album, “What Makes You Country,” which is set for release on Dec. 8.
