Luke Bryan Recalls Deciding to Move to Nashville – Exclusive Video
Luke Bryan can pinpoint the moment he knew Nashville was where he was meant to be. The singer took a moment during his recent Walmart Soundcheck to answer Taste of Country's question about making the jump from small town Georgia to Tennessee. He tells Taste of Country that it was just after college, during the summer of 2001.
"I left college and went to work for my dad, who owns a fertilizer chemical company and a peanut company," Bryan explains in the exclusive video below. "And about a year-and-a-half breathing in fertilizer chemical dust and peanut dust and really working like crazy … I felt like it was time, and it was time and I was lucky enough to have a lot of friends and family and have all their blessings."
"The minute that I told everybody I was going, I never looked back and it was the right decision," he adds.
The Walmart Soundcheck performance features Bryan singing six songs, including three from his new album, 'Tailgates and Tanlines.' There's also an over six-minute long interview with the 'Country Girl (Shake It for Me)' singer during which he talks about everything from naming his new album to his upcoming headlining slot on the CMT Tour and the music he listened to growing up.
