Luke Bryan Takes Over ‘Today': ‘Build Me a Daddy,’ ‘Knockin’ Boots’ + More [Watch]

Country superstar Luke Bryan performs on 'The Today Show' in August 2020.

Luke Bryan performed on the Today show to wrap up last week with three songs from his brand new album, Born Here Live Here Die Here: “Build Me a Daddy,” “Knockin’ Boots” and “One Margarita.”

Speaking to some of Today‘s co-anchors in a Citi Music Series interview, Bryan talks about his seventh studio effort. Originally due this spring, the delay meant Born Here emerged on Friday (Aug. 7), with three Billboard Country Airplay chart-toppers already in its pocket. “Knockin’ Boots,” “What She Wants Tonight” and “One Margarita” have all ascended to the top of the chart.

“It’s been an interesting album release,” Bryan explains. “I certainly have never done one all virtually. But we were originally going to put the album out in April. And with everything going on, obviously, with COVID, it just was not the time to be putting an album out. So we just delayed the release [until now].”

“But that allowed us to put ‘One Margarita’ out, which added another No. 1. So it’s been pretty amazing,” he continues. “I can certainly say I probably will never release an[other] album with three No. 1’s before the thing ever comes out. So, it’s like, hey, it’s already been a success, hopefully.”

But that wasn’t all Bryan touched on during his appearance. Asked what he’s been up to in the meantime, the country superstar spoke a little about the ill-fated corn farm he planted, among other things.

“Hunting, fishing, loving every day,” Bryan echos to Today‘s Savannah Guthrie about his activities during downtime from touring. “Growing corn. You know, I grew this huge sweet corn patch. [And] me and the boys fishing; we’ve been checking off some bucket list stuff. And … the dreaded corn patch.”
