  • Luke Bryan Finds "Bro Country" Label Aggravating and Derogatory

    Image Courtesy CMALuke Bryan may sing about trucks and girls and drinking beer on a few of his songs, but don't you dare call his music "bro country."  Luke tells ABC News he finds that term aggravating and derogatory of the country music genre as a whole.
