Luke Bryan released an emotional new track, “Build Me A Daddy,” the sixth song from his upcoming album, Born Here, Live Here, Die Here, and tweeted that the song might turn listeners into puddles of tears.
The song is about a young boy, whose father a soldier, has died. Earlier in the week, Bryan teased a 14-second clip of the song and wrote, “I’ve played this song for a lot of my hardcore buddies and it chokes them up. I think that’s the beauty of country music, to really make you feel emotional. I can’t wait to share my new song, ‘Build Me A Daddy,’ with you guys this Friday.”
“A boy walks past a window of a glowing ‘Open’ sign / Full of wooden toys and trucks and painted trains,” Bryan sings. “Rings the bell up on the counter, hands a picture to the man / Of a kid beside a soldier smiling away / Says, ‘Sir, I’ve heard you can build anything / Could you build me a daddy?’
“Maybe you could bring him back,” the lyrics go on. “If I walked in with him, it’d sure make my Mama happy / If you could build me a daddy.”
Bryan’s sons Bo and Tate make an appearance at the end of the video, which was shot by Michael Monaco in the southern part of Nashville.
The Born Here, Live Here, Die Here album, which was originally scheduled to land on May 28, is now set for release on August 7. The album also features Bryan’s chart-topping hit “What She Wants Tonight” and his latest single, “One Margarita.”
The singer hopes to go on his Proud to Be Right Here Tour in support of the album in August.
