Luke Bryan Shares the Story Behind His Single, ‘Fast’

These days, it seems like life is constantly moving and doesn’t have any time to stop. Heck, it’s hard to believe that it’s the end of one year and the beginning of a whole new start.

Luke Bryan and his songwriting crew wanted to take the rat race concept and make it into a relatable track for all of his listeners to just sit back and relax to. Taking the simple meaning of the word, ‘fast,’ Bryan just wanted his fans to reflect on the little things in life that sometimes we take for granted when schedules are getting more packed and everything seems to have sped up overnight.

Fast is a song that I got the opportunity to get in the room with Rodney Clawson and Luke Laird and we started it. Luke and Rodney, I mean obviously, their pedigree is quite extensive and amazing. And I’m just so proud about how we used a simple word like Fast, and we tied the verses in and then that second verse how we brought in the parents were saying ‘we were falling in love too fast but we still made it work.’ And how life does move too fast. Every time I come home my boys are bigger and starting to throw me around the house a little more, and one day I’ll snap my fingers and you wish you could have froze time a little bit. And I think anytime you can help people slow down and reflect on that and remember to take things in stride a little bit better, I think people love hearing that in a song,” he explained.

“Fast” comes just in time for those who want to chill out over the holiday season, and is also the follow-up single to five No. 1 hits on Bryan’s successful album, Kill the Lights. Fans can add the track to their digital streaming playlists now.
