Don’t be fooled by the title. Luke Bryan‘s new single “Fast” takes its time telling a grown man’s story.
“Fast” is part nostalgia, part love story. Both parts fit the 40-year-old singer well. More and more, Bryan is at his best when he’s reflecting on the wild highs and lows of his life. Even when he’s not a co-writer (as in the hit song “Drink a Beer”), Bryan is able to inject his personal experiences into song.
That comes easy on “Fast,” a song he did write. Rodney Clawson and Luke Laird lend a hand with lyrics that are sure to compel men to hold their women tight as he’s singing it live in 2017. One imagines a sold out crowd swaying back and forth during the singalong. The song is the sixth single from Kill the Lights, but hardly a gimmick to keep him on the radio while he prepares something new. “Fast” has real heart.
Did You Know?: Only one Luke Bryan single has failed to go Gold or Platinum: his last single “Move.” It’s likely that song will do so soon.
