Bryan’s upcoming album

A press release that the artist gave out stated:

"'Proud to be right here' is a phrase from my new album’s title track, 'Born Here, Live Here, Die Here.’ From the moment I first heard it, I loved that this song related so closely to how I grew up and how I still have so many ties to my hometown. It’s a connection I feel is so important in country music."

The “Born Here, Live Here, Die Here” will feature singles like “Knockin’ Boots” and “What She Wants Tonight.” The country singer last released an LP, “What Makes You Country,” in 2017.
