Luke Bryan “Heartbroken” Over Fallout

Published On July 17, 2015 | By Cheryl Johnstone | Country Music News

Luke Bryan has opened up about the fallout from his comments regarding outlaw music, specifically Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard. The singer has done his share of apologizing this week, and talked about how upsetting this entire situation has been for him personally.

“I will never be able to vocalize how disturbing and how heartbroken you can get over a situation like. I’m about to dang cry right now saying it. I mean, it was a . . . it’s just been a testing week for me. It has been one of the most enlightening situations I have ever dealt with from every gamut of what you think and what you know, from the time it actually happened until even today, and through all of it I did things that I felt necessary to explain and describe, but when Shooter did what he did it was as if like I was kind of set free from it and the page was turned.”

Luke says that if any good has come out of this situation, it’s that he and Waylon’s son, Shooter Jennings, have plans to meet up and get to know each other a bit.

“The fact that Shooter Jennings and I have had multiple texts and even spoke on the phone and talked about getting together and having some coffee and talk about music and stuff is like the neatest thing. It tells you that . . . I don’t know . . . There’s something to be taken out of every situation and that’s happened in this.”

Luke’s new album, Kill The Lights, will be in stores on August 7th.
