Luke Bryan released a new song today (11/4) called “Prayin’ In A Deer Stand.” The song was written by Bryan, Nicolle Galyon, and Jimmy Robbins and is the second release of new music following his current radio single “Country On.”
Luke says of the new tune, “This is such a personal song to me. The world can be a busy place, and I, like a lot of people, have a ton of different things going on but getting to be outside, it grounds and reenergizes me. There is just something about it that never gets old.”
The first verse of the new song sings, “I think I read somewhere in the Good Book, says He’s everywhere / Up in this tree with the wind and the leaves, yeah, it all seems so clear / When your phones in the truck, and you’re camo’d up, and your mind’s just running free / It might look like hunting, but it’s way more than that to me.”
The lyrics include, “I do my prayin’ in a deer stand / On my back forty church / Thinkin’ about life on a cold sunrise / Yeah, that’s my heaven on earth / Me and God in a cornfield / Gotta think He understands / I might miss a Sunday from time to time / But I get there when I can / We’re all good in these woods / ‘Cause here I am, prayin’ in a deer stand.”
Bryan wraps his “Raised Up Right Tour” this weekend with three re-scheduled shows in Florida.
For the second consecutive year, Luke is hosting the “On the Road to the CMA Awards” on Monday, November 7 at 10 pm ET on ABC the next day on Hulu. The special explores the highs and lows of life on tour, including the more private offstage moments, while meeting the artists’ most passionate and loyal fans.
On November 9, Bryan and NFL superstar Peyton Manning will host “The 56th Annual CMA Awards” live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena at 8 pm ET on ABC.
