Bryan intends on having a shorter album

He also explained that it would have a "vintage" feel and he intended for it to not be as long as the previous ones. Bryan said:

"I don't know if like a 15, 16 — for awhile that was the trend [his last 3 albums had 15, 13 and 13 songs respectively, not including bonus tracks] ..."


The singer continued by noting that he worried that the album, including "What Makes You Country," would have songs that got "lost in the mix."

His previous album

The Georgia native noted how he was thinking of shrinking the album size. The new album comes after Bryan released “What Makes You Country” in December 2017.


The previous album had hits like "Light It Up" and "Most People Are Good." “Born Here, Live Here, Die Here” will include the musician’s number one song "Knockin' Boots” among others.
