It was a song you never expected from Luke Bryan.
“Play It Again” was one of those few that was able to ride that fine line between bro country and authentic country music, and it worked.
That’s the thing about Luke. Many will say he’s just as guilty as his fellow country bros when it comes to the bro-country movement, but he’s got some really great country music and “Play It Again” is just that!
Even the video was amazing, really capturing what a Luke Bryan show is like for everyone involved, including the stagehands to the fans and even what’s it’s like for Luke himself. The song is so catchy, that when it’s over, you just want to play it again.
On April 26, 2014, “Play It Again” started an unprecedented nine-week run at No. 1 on the charts.
It’s songs like this that really make you believe that good songs will always win out because in country music, it all begins with a song, and this is one helluva song.
