Luke Bryan has released his new single, “Most People Are Good,” and the song couldn’t be a more welcome more appropriately timed with all of the tragedy that people around the world experienced in 2017.

With such poignant lyrics such as “I believe this world ain’t half as bad as it looks/I believe most people are good/I believe that days go slow and years go fast/and every breath’s a gift, the first one to the last,” this song could be just what we needed, a song that carries a welcome message, which could lead to a healing of hearts and minds.

“I think it’s a song that will truly help people believe in people again. I think it’s so truthful in so many ways. We do get reminded every day of all the negativity of what humans are, and truly it’s only .001 percent of people causing all the negativity. I mean, I truly believe that,” says Luke. “I’m going to open the door for anybody and so many other people believe that way. I’m going to say hey to a stranger. I’m going to help somebody out in need, and that’s what this song really, really preaches. It preaches the innocence of children, the beauty of mothers, the beauty of relationships, the beauty of what life truly could be and should be and really is. I truly believe that most people lay their heads down at night and try to be better and try to be good to other people. And I think this song captures those emotions perfectly.”

“Most People Are Good” is from Luke’s new chart-topping album,What Makes You Country, as well as the follow-up to his recent No. 1 hit, “Light It Up.”
