Album releases become available for download Fridays at midnight East Coast Time. Since that’s 9pm Thursday night West Coast Time, every Thursday night, Pepper picks her two favorite songs from the new country albums and plays them on K-Frog for New at Nine! Here are her picks for this week.
Regarding his new new album What Makes You Country, Luke Bryan has some big opinions on what exactly makes him country.
“I think that what makes me country is where I was raised -Leesburg, Georgia – how I was brought up saying ‘Yes sir,’ ‘No sir,’ ‘Yes, ma’am,’ ‘No, ma’am,’ hopefully with manners and raised with a work ethic and raised in the outdoors fishing and hunting and playing sports,” he explains in a statement from his label.
“But yeah, I would say definitely it starts with my small-town upbringing and how we were raised; church on Sundays as much as we could. But just enjoying life and living life in a small town.”
Here are the songs from What Makes You Country that I played for New at Nine tonight:
- Light It Up
- Sunrise, Sunburn, Sunset
