Is Luke Bryan’s ‘Sunrise, Sunburn, Sunset’ A Hit? Listen And Sound Off
Luke Bryan quit making Spring Break EPs, but he’s certainly not done with warm, beachside memories. “Sunrise, Sunburn, Sunset” is a definitive piece of summer nostalgia. The song finds Bryan and a few buddies enjoying free lodging at a lake house when a girl rolls up with some friends and the group become better acquainted. There’s little to think about during this three-and-a-half-minute earworm — while the singer has never been one to wrap his intentions in layers of poetic metaphor, the action here is as clear as Where’s Spot? If great summer songs were meant to be easy, then Bryan’s “Sunrise, Sunburn, Sunset” will be an all-timer. The song’s chorus sticks like wet sand and each verse recalls one’s own dalliance with a less-than-hesitant lover. Expect this song to burn brightly this summer.
