Luke Bryan’s “Most People Are Good” remains at the top of both country charts for a third week in a row. The song is his 20th No. 1 which is his second chart-topper from his latest album, What Makes You Country.
The Georgia native says his own mother cried when she heard the song. “When I hear ‘most mamas ought to qualify for sainthood,’ it’s one of the best lines I’ve ever heard in a song,” says Luke. “I’ll play Mama my new album before it comes out and half the time she’s scrambling, doing the dishes or something and she won’t listen, but I caught her in the truck. I kinda had her attention and I played her ‘Most People are Good,’ and the picture of her with a big ole paper towel over her face crying. The line really hit her, hit her like it should hit you. ‘Most mothers ought to qualify for sainthood’ – I know my wife should definitely be a saint, putting up with me and my crazy boys.”
Luke is nominated for ACM Entertainer of the Year, an award he’s taken home twice. The 53rd Annual ACM Awards will broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas April 15th at 8pm ET on CBS.
