Luke Bryan sits on top of the Country Aircheck / Mediabase charts once again as his “What Makes You Country” scores the top spot this week.

Bryan co-wrote the tune with his buddies Dallas Davidson and Ashley Gorley, and he says it describes exactly how he grew up in Georgia.

“I think that what makes me country is where I was raised, Leesburg, Georgia, how I was brought up saying ‘Yes sir,’ ‘No sir,’ ‘Yes, ma’am,’ ‘No, ma’am,’ hopefully with manners and raised with a work ethic and raised in the outdoors fishing and hunting and playing sports,” says Luke. “I would say definitely it starts with my small-town upbringing and how we were raised; church on Sundays as much as we could, but [also] just enjoying life and living life in a small town.”

What Makes You Country is #1. Thank you, Country Radio!!!!! ????
