What Does Luke Bryan's Down To One Mean?

Luke Bryan just announced that he's hitting the road. His annual Farm Tour is coming back this fall, according to Taste of Country. This is after already having a pretty successful 2021. The country superstar took home the big award at this year's ACM Awards for Entertainer of the Year and is scheduled to appear at the CMT Music Awards on June 9 (via Vulture). According to Billboard, Bryan will be one of the many performers who will take the stage during the awards show. 


While the show is expected to feature some big collaborations between country newcomers and some of the biggest names in the business, Bryan is one of the few artists scheduled to perform solo. He's also nominated for Male Video of the Year for his song "Down To One" (via CMT). The song, co-written by Dallas Davidson, Justin Ebach and Kyle Fishman, has a very romantic feel to it, but you might be wondering about the true meaning behind "Down To One." 

'Down To One' is Luke Bryan's wife's favorite song on the album

Luke Bryan announced the single "Down To One" back in October 2020, and with the release, he posted on Instagram the story behind the song (via Pop Culture). "'Down to One' is a real typical song of mine that you kind of expect from me from the years," he said. He added that he knew it was a hit the first time he heard it. It's about a romantic moment between a couple, and as the "American Idol" judge says, "You've gotta have those on an album." 


In his Instagram post, Bryan also says that it's his wife Caroline's favorite song on the album, "Born Here Live Here Die Here." With lyrics like, "I was thinkin' 'bout your lips, girl and kissin' on 'em/We were sittin' in the light of the moon," the song details a sweet moonlit date (via Genius). It's so sweet that Bryan says that's why it's his wife's favorite

When speaking with Taste of Country, Bryan said his wife "always wants [him] to put out fun songs" and that she believes "nobody wants to hear a bunch of sad, depressing stuff." While it's a love song, "Down To One" definitely has a fun and upbeat vibe to it that will have you dancing in no time.
