Ahh the bro country label. Luckily this phrase is being used less and less, but that doesn’t stop Luke Bryan from being frustrated with it.
He told the Cleveland The Plain Dealer,” It’s frustrating because whichever artists may or may not get labeled as that, they’re well beyond that. For people to call me the father of it, well, whatever. It just seems like a term that was invented to cheapen me as an artist.”
And he didn’t stop there. He went on to express his feelings on the term “Bro-country.” Even saying it puts down the fans who buy his album and concert tickets.
Luke said, “When people say ‘Luke Bryan fans are nothing but beer drinkers,’ that makes me mad because I know they’re more than that. They are the people who make this country go round and round.”
He also said he feels his album Kill the Lights, goes well beyond what you might label as “Bro-country” with many songs tapping into his traditional country roots.
