Luke brought the goosebumps to the Grand Ole Opry last night.
Sure, he played some fan favorites like “Beautiful Crazy” the rest, but he kicked off his most recent visit to the Opry with a brand new one titled, “Joe.”
Co-written alongside Erik Dylan and James Slater, “Joe” chronicles the redemptive story of a man who battled alcoholism, and found the light “at the end of the bottle.”
“Seeing as I haven’t played in so long, I figured I would do a brand song for you guys tonight.
My buddy Erik Dylan showed up at my house the other day and he played me a song, a while ago that he had started with a guy named James Slater, and I just thought it was real awesome and we finished it together.
I guess the title of this song would be called “Joe” so just hear me out and tell me what you think.”
Here’s a snippet from the first verse:
“I got a job and my name’s Joe Spend my days at the Texaco Never show up late Never show up drunk When I get half lit I’m a loaded gun Made a couple wrong turns Did county time I do everything I can to stay between the lines.”
