(UMG Nashville) Five-time Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan is premiering a brand-new song today across all digital platforms, "But I Got A Beer In My Hand." The song was written by Chase McGill, Matt Dragstrem, and Geoff Warburton, and was produced by Jeff Stevens and co-produced by Jody Stevens. It will impact country radio on May 15 and is from a highly anticipated forth-coming album.
Luke will perform "But I Got A Beer In My Hand" on the Sunday, May 21 season finale of "American Idol" as he, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie wrap up their sixth season as judges on television's original singing competition. Tune in to the live coast-to-coast, three-hour season finale (8:00-11:00 p.m. EDT/6:00-9:00 p.m. MDT/5:00-8:00 p.m. PDT) on ABC.
"I knew I wanted a fun up-tempo song everyone could enjoy this summer," said Luke. "I can't wait to start doing it live. It's gonna be a blast."
