Luke Bryan’s “Country Girl”: Your Wife Called To Say Its OK
Luke Bryan’s ‘Country Girl (Shake It for Me), which invites women to shake their ‘assets’, sounds more like the theme song for a swinging bachelor, than the happily married father of two boys but the Georgia native, who also wrote the song, insists the sexually-charged tune has the full support of his wife of five years, Caroline.
“She loves it, because it’s about my music and, she’s heard all this music before anybody else,” Luke told TheBoot.com. “With ‘Country Girl,’ she obviously knew what the video was going to have to be. You had to have pretty girls dancing and shaking, and with the performance for the CMT [Awards], you gotta have the same deal. She loved it. She loved the dancing and everything.”
The success of the tune, is as much due to his wife’s effort as it is his own, he says. “She is happy for me and happy for us,” the 34-year-old maintains. “She has to let me go on the road and write and let me be gone to figure out how to write and record and sing these songs and perform them, so it’s certainly a two-way street. My successes are our successes. We go to concerts and have fun, and she wants to go, and she knows that people are going to want to come to my show to have a big time, and ‘Country Girl’ is going to make that happen.”
You go Luke!
