Thomas Luther Bryan was born July 17, 1976 in Leesburg Georgia. He didn't start playing guitar until he was fourteen. The night before relocating to Nashville, Luke's brother was killed in an automobile accident. Moving to "Music City" was put on hold as Bryan attended university close to home so he could be with his family.
In 2001, at the behest of his father, Bryan moved to Nashville and quickly entered the industry as a songwriter. Before making it as a performer, Bryan wrote songs for Travis Tritt and Billy Currington. Bryan's first album, I'll Stay Me, hit the proverbial store shelves in 2007. His sophomore effort, Doin' My Thing, came out in 2009. That was followed by Tailgates & Tanlines in 2011 and Crash My Party in 2013. All of his albums have been certified gold or Platinum and all have peaked at either one or two on the country charts. Throughout his career, Bryan has released a series of EPs containing party songs. In 2013, he compiled them into an album called Spring Break - Here to Party.
Bryan has been nominated for a bunch of major awards. In 2012, he won nine American Country Awards including Artist and Album of the Year. Also in 2012, Luke Bryan tickets were sold for the "Dirt Road Diaries Tour." It was Bryan's first stint as a headliner.
