** Luke Bryan is trending today as he just gave us more details about his final Spring Break album, “Spring Break … Checkin’ Out.” It’ll have five new songs, all written by him, along with six from last year’s EP as well (eleven songs in total).

Asked about the project, Luke told us, “We kind of write ‘em with college kids and Spring Break and that whole party theme in mind. I think it’s fun to put out songs just to get some new music out there for fans and more opportunities for them to have different types of music from me.”
