Luke Bryan Scores His 19th #1 Hit With ‘Light It Up’


Luke Bryan scores his 19th career No. 1 hit with “Light It Up” tops both the Billboard and Country Aircheck  country airplay charts. The song is the first single from his new album, What Makes You Country, which was released on Friday (December 8th). He co-wrote “Light It Up” with Brad Tursi from Old Dominion.

“You look at everybody, everybody is locked into their cell phones these days, their screen. They’re constantly jockeying between a million things on their phone, and so when you’re in limbo with your significant other and you’re fighting whatever – so many people break up, get back together, fight, argue, fall in love via text message, and this guy is just waiting to see if this girl wants his love, and if she wants it, just say, ‘Hey, just light it up.’

When your screen is dark and you see it light up and it’s got that text message you want on it, it’s a big deal,” says the Georgia native. “I think we were able to really capture that anxiousness, that anxiety, going to bed with it by your pillow, lying there if it buzzes. You want it to be that text message and you can’t rest, and finally you have to just put the phone on the floor or get it away from you because you’re in limbo.”

Catch Luke as he performs on the Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday (December 12th).
