The country music star Luke Bryan is triggering liberals everywhere in a big way with his new song that he released today.
Earlier this week, we reported that the country music star Luke Bryan was refusing to back down after receiving backlash for bringing Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) onstage during a concert last week. Now, Bryan has released a new song and accompanying image that are sure to make liberal heads explode.
Bryan Hit With Backlash From Left
Last night, Bryan took to Twitter to post a photo of himself hunting and pointing a finger up to God. Liberal social media users immediately fired back at him by expressing their anger at both his hunting and his openness about his strong Christian faith.
“Good bye Luke, Good bye ‘American Idol!’ This makes me sad but after Florida I can’t,” one social media user commented, with another asking, “Are you praying for the life that was just taken?”
“Not after Florida Luke. There’s no taking that back, unfortunately,” a third user wrote, with a fourth commenting, “I hate this photo. And I’m sure many others do to. Cruel and shameful.”
Bryan’s New Song
It wasn’t until Friday morning that it became clear that the image was actually a promotion for a surprise new song of Bryan’s called “Prayin’ In A Deer Stand.” Taste Of Country reported that the song, which was co-written by Nicolle Galyon and Jimmy Robbins, features Bryan reflecting on God and freedom while hunting as he stands in a deer stand.
“This is such a personal song to me,” Bryan said in a statement. “The world can be a busy place and I, like a lot of people, have a ton of different things going on but getting to be outside, it grounds and reenergizes me. There is just something about it that never gets old.”
While promoting the song on Facebook, Bryan said, “this one is perso

Bryan Stands By DeSantis
This comes after Bryan fired back at liberals who were slamming him for bringing DeSantis onstage during a concert in Jacksonville.
“I typically don’t respond to stuff when I’m getting run down on a social platform but here’s the deal,” Bryan said. “I understand Governor DeSantis is a very polarizing figure. But I grew up in a country where if a governor ask you if they can come and raise awareness to help victims of a natural disaster you help.”
“I’ve generally stayed out of politics throughout my career,” he continued. “I knew people would chatter about this but for me the more important piece was If I am going to come back there a few weeks after a large portion of people have been affected by a natural disaster in a state where people have been good to me this felt right.”
Bryan concluded by saying that he would not be addressing this situation again, and by encouraging his fans to donate to Hurricane Ian relief efforts.
DeSantis also responded to the controversy through his spokesperson Christina Pushaw.
“Reminder to all public figures, corporations, etc… Twitter isn’t real life,” she tweeted. “The haters might be loud and well-organized online, but in reality, they are a small portion of the population, especially here in Florida. Thanks @lukebryan for helping support Hurricane Ian victims.”
Over the past week, Bryan has shown himself to be a celebrity who is not afraid to anger the left in a variety of ways. We love his new song, and we hope he continues to trigger leftists in the future!
