This year has already been a big one for Luke Bryan. He started a new gig as a judge on American Idol and released the second single from his sixth studio album, What Makes You Country. That single, “Most People Are Good,” has flown up the charts and earned Bryan his 20th No. 1 hit.
This week, Bryan’s track crept from the No. 3 spot up to No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart, ahead of Devin Dawson’s “All On Me” and Thomas Rhett’s “Marry Me.” Bryan also holds the top spot on the Mediabase Country chart.
It’s safe to assume that Bryan is probably particularly proud that this song earned him his 20th No. 1. “I think that ‘Most People Are Good‘ might be one of the best songs I’ve ever recorded,” Bryan stated in a press release. “I think it’s a song that truly helps people believe in people again. We seem to get reminded every day of all the negativity of what humans are, and truly it’s only .001 percent of people causing all the negativity…I think that most people lay their heads down at night and try to be better and try to be good to other people. And this song captures those emotions perfectly.”
