Country superstar, Luke Bryan releases a new emotional track titled “Songs You Never Heard.” The song, written by Luke Laird and Josh Osbourne, was released in honor of his late brother, Chris, and alongside his new docu-series Luke Bryan: My Dirt Road Diary.
In this acoustic, melancholy track, Bryan mentions the songs he and his late brother, Chris used to sing along to and the ones Chris would’ve loved had he been alive prior to their releases, such as “Run” by George Strait and “In Color” by Jamey Johnson. As he is reminiscing, Bryan claims he can hear his brother singing along in the car with him, even to the ones he never got to hear. Although his mom would disagree, Bryan states that if Chris was alive today, he’d be Bryan’s number one fan.
“Time marches on, there’s a lot of new // music and memories we’d be drinking to // I think about it and I laugh until it hurts // ‘Cause I can hear you singing along // to songs you never heard”
Bryan’s five-part docu-series premiered on IMDB’s streaming platform earlier this month and touches on Bryan’s life, backstory, career, and how he dealt with the tragedies his family endured. It is unclear whether “Songs You Never Heard” will make an upcoming album or just be part of this new documentary, as “Waves,” Bryan’s current single, is climbing the airplay charts.
