Luke Bryan to Release New Album on 11th Wedding Anniversary: “I’m Sorry, Baby”

Luke Bryan got his wife, Caroline, a big ol’ diamond ring for their 10th wedding anniversary on Dec. 8, 2016.

This year, Luke may have to get Caroline the matching necklace.

Luke is set to release his sixth studio album, What Makes You Country, on Dec. 8—yup, his 11th wedding anniversary.

Album release week will take Luke to New York City to make the media rounds, which means he won’t be spending a romantic evening at home with the wifey.

“So I am very good about anniversaries and stuff like that, but when we were planning the album and putting it out, we were throwing all these dates around,” said Luke to Nash morning show Ty, Kelly & Chuck. “I’m at the house, and I’m like, ‘Yeah, Baby, I’ll be up in New York and the album comes out the eighth.’ She looked at me and goes, ‘Hmm, interesting day for an album release.’ And I said, ‘I’m sorry, Baby.’ And then you try to spin it. ‘Well, Baby, just come to New York and we’ll eat great food and we’ll walk and go look at people at Rockefeller Plaza.’ She’s like, ‘You work 20 hours a days during album release [week] . . . but I’ll be there.’”

Listen to Ty, Kelly & Chuck on Oct. 25 at 5:30 a.m. CT and 8:30 a.m. CT to hear Luke explain his anniversary/album release predicament.
