Luke Bryan To Be Featured on ACM Album

Published On April 1, 2015 | By Cheryl Johnstone | Country Music News

NOW That’s What I Call ACM Awards 50 Years, the milestone anniversary collaboration between the Academy of Country Music and NOW That’s What I Call Music!, is at retail this week.

The collection of recordings celebrate the ACM Awards’ 50-year history and will feature two discs as well as a digital collection of ACM award-winning songs. The first disc will feature recent contemporary hits while the second will include timeless classics.

Luke Bryan says the song that he contributes, his chart-topping hit “Country Girl (Shake It For Me),” is pure fun.

“What I love about the song the most is the verses. I really like how the verses came together. It seems like around every little corner there’s a fun, you know, with the little break-down dance – ‘like a dandelion’ and all that. All that stuff is like ear candy to me. I just felt like it was important, I felt like it was a young, fun song, and I felt like it said right away what we were going after and it’s certainly it’s kind of paced faster than anything I’ve ever had and that’s always rewarding. I think it makes everybody’s hard work, everybody can go, ‘Yeah, it’s worth all the sleepless nights and all the tiresome work.’”

All of the Academy’s proceeds from sales of NOW That’s What I Call ACM Awards 50 Years will go to ACM Lifting Lives, the philanthropic arm of the Academy of Country Music, dedicated to improving lives through the power of music.

The 50th Academy of Country Music Awards will be broadcast live from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on Sunday, April 19th at 8 pm.
