Why Luke Bryan Designed "Move" to Be "Country Girl’s" Little Sister

ABC/Image Group LA If you think Luke Bryan’s latest top-five hit sounds a lot like his triple-platinum smash from 2011, the CMA Entertainer of the Year tells ABC Radio he’s just fine with that. In fact, that’s just how he planned it.

“When I wrote 'Move,' I just envisioned [that]....it's gonna appeal to that same crowd that… 'Country Girl (Shake It for Me)' [did],” he recalls. “And I mean, I love nothing more to play music that I can see fans out there having a great time and dancing. I just want people dancing!"

He adds, "My thing is just whatever songs that I feel like I can get a fun reaction out of my fans. And I certainly think people…close their eyes and dance like crazy when they hear 'Move!'"  

 This week, there will be plenty of dancing, as Luke kicks off his 8th annual Farm Tour Wednesday at Culler Farms in Gaston, South Carolina.
