Bryan thrilled to have women on his lineup

Learning more about how female country stars where sidelined helped Bryan realize that he had to do his part. The star added: "I'm a big believer. The fact that we are now going to have two awesome female acts out there. It's very fun!"

When will his new album get released

The country musician has also released his new single called "What She Wants Tonight." The track is from his upcoming album “Born Here, Live Here, Die Here,” which will hit the stores on April 24, 2020.

What his single is about

The song was roughly about a woman who knows what she wants and goes for it. The artist felt the single fit in with the times because it wasn’t as “taboo” for a “woman to be controlling the narrative."

Bryan worked with 3 writers on his single

Bryan wrote “What She Wants Tonight” with the assistance of three Nashville writers: Hillary Lindsey, Jon Nite, and Ross Copperman. The single was one of three songs they worked on a summer day at Bryan’s farm outside of Nashville.

The possible difference in the new record

Speaking about his upcoming album, the country star revealed that he was considering “shrinking” his record size. The reason behind this was that Bryan felt when an album was too long with around 15 or 16 tracks, some of the songs on it “get a little ... lost in the mix.”

“Born Here, Live Here, Die Here” will be his seventh studio album.
