Luke Bryan helped his family work the farm when he was young, but in his early teens he developed a passion for country music. He played in bands and wrote songs while attending college. He recorded a self-released album, which he sold at shows, but was reluctant to take the plunge and devote himself to music full-time until he returned home to work in the family business after receiving his degree. Bryan's dad, confident of his son's talent, made him an offer: he could either move to Nashville or be fired. His first break came as a co-writer, and soon after as a performer. His hits include "All My Friends Say," "We Rode in Trucks," "Country Man," "Do I," "Rain Is a Good Thing," "Someone Else Calling You Baby," "Country Girl (Shake It For Me)," "I Don't Want This Night to End," "Drunk On You." In 2010, Luke won Top New Solo Vocalist and Top New Artist (Academy of Country Music Awards) and USA Weekend Breakthrough Video of the Year for "Do I" (CMT Music Awards).
