Luke Bryan Scores 20th No. 1 Single With ‘Most People Are Good’
Luke Bryan has scored another chart-topping success from his new album, What Makes You Country. The second single from the project, "Most People Are Good," has followed its lead single, "Light It Up," to No. 1 on Billboard's Country Airplay chart, marking Bryan's 20th career No. 1 single.
David Frasier, Ed Hill and Josh Kear co-wrote "Most People Are Good," which also lands at the top of the Country Aircheck chart this week. The song adheres to a more traditional bent than much of Bryan's catalog, and the lyrics provide a ray of hope in difficult times.
"I believe most people are good / And most mamas oughta 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," Bryan sings.
The Best Luke Bryan Moments Ever!
"I think that 'Most People Are Good' might be one of the best songs I’ve ever recorded,” Bryan says in a press release. "I think it’s a song that truly helps people believe in people again. We seem to get reminded every day of all the negativity of what humans are, and truly it’s only .001 percent of people causing all the negativity. I mean, I truly believe that. This song preaches the innocence of children, the beauty of mothers, the beauty of relationships, the beauty of what life truly could be and should be and really is. I think that most people lay their heads down at night and try to be better and try to be good to other people. And this song captures those emotions perfectly."
Bryan will be on the road for much of 2018 on his What Makes You Country Tour, which is set to launch on May 31 in Toronto. Sam Hunt, Carly Pearce, Morgan Wallen and Jon Pardi are all joining Bryan for the tour. He is also a judge on the current season of American Idol.
