Luke Bryan just had a full-circle moment.
In a new interview with CMT’s Cody Alan, the country superstar sounds off on his Darius Rucker collaboration, a cover of the group Drivin’ N’ Cryin’s 1989 smash "Straight To Hell."
The chance to sing with the former Hootie and the Blowfish singer was something Luke never thought would happen.
“‘Straight To Hell’ was one of the biggest college songs of all time," Luke says. "So Darius comes up to me and he’s like, ‘Hey, man, I’ve got to get you in to sing on ‘Straight To Hell.’ And I was like, ‘Drivin’ N’ Cryin’s “Straight To Hell”?’ And he was like, ‘Yeah.’ And I was like, ‘Man, my momma’s really not going to like this song, but I’ll do it.’ ... I loved the way it turned out.... To be on that with Darius, who I was listening to in college also, was pretty surreal.”
In addition to Luke, Charles Kelley and Jason Aldean also add their vocals to the revamped “Straight To Hell."
