Luke Bryan Releases Emotional Track, “Build Me A Daddy”

Build Me A Daddy

Country superstar, Luke Bryan released a new, timely track that’s right in time for Father’s Day called “Build Me A Daddy”. The song will feature as the sixth track on his upcoming Born Here Live Here Die Here album.

The ballad, written by Brett Tyler, Jake Mitchell, and Josh Thompson has all the gloomy vibes of his classic hit, “Drink a Beer,” as Bryan sings about a loss in the family. A young boy goes into a wooden toy shop and asks the man behind the counter if he could build him a daddy. He describes what he wants him to look like: strong as Superman, ten feet tall, a southern drawl, and a crooked smile. He also mentions that he was looking forward to his dad teaching him how to aim a gun and throw a curveball. The chorus ends with a line about how happy it would make his mother if he could bring his father back, talk about pulling at the heartstrings.


‘Cause I sure miss him / Maybe you can bring him back / If I walked in with him it’d sure make my momma happy / if you could build me a daddy

“Build Me a Daddy” follows Bryan’s current single “One Margarita.” The release date for his upcoming seventh studio album, Born Here Live Here Die Here was originally scheduled for April 24th but has been pushed back to August 7th due to the Covid-19 pandemic
