At age 16, two songwriters who had some success writing songs for Nashville artists
invited Bryan to join their writing sessions at a local church. At that time,
Luke Bryan fronted his own band. Bryan and his band performed almost every weekend
at nearby clubs. He recorded an album of 10 songs, nine of which he wrote himself.
He then moved to Nashville and signed a publishing contract with a company owned
by Roger Murrah. Bryan's debut album, I'll Stay Me, was released in 2007
by Capitol Nashville which included “Country Man," that reached the
Top 10 on Billboard's country albums chart. He followed up with 2009's Doin' My
Thing, which included "Rain Is a Good Thing," which became his first
number one single, and "Someone Else Calling You Baby," which topped
the charts in 2011. Luke Bryan won the awards for Breakthrough Video of the Year
at the CMT Music Awards in 2010.
