Is Luke Bryan’s ‘Sunrise, Sunburn, Sunset’ a Hit? Listen and Sound Off!

Subscribe to Big Country 96.9 on

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.

Did You Know?: Bryan is riding a streak of 12 straight No. 1 hits on the Billboard Country Airplay chart.

Luke Bryan’s “Sunrise, Sunburn, Sunset” Lyrics:

Your daddy had a lake house / He had me paint it that summer sophomore year / Said I could stay for free, a couple buddies, a couple weeks / You rolled in in a little red Honda and headed straight for the pier / Tank-top and cut-off jeans, little PacSun underneath / Who knew it was ‘bout to be.

Sunrise, sunburn, sunset, repeat / Moonlight, all night, crashin’ into me / Nothin’ll ever be easy as you and me / Tangled up and nowhere to be / Just sunrise, sunburn, sunset, repeat.

I turned those shutters the color of your eyes ‘til the day turned into night / And took turns with a jar, turned that boat dock into a bar / And then we passed the guitar around the fire to each other / And watched all of our friends pair off with one another / We fell like the stars we were under / And everybody knew that that was our summer.

Whoa, we set July on fire / Whoa, yeah girl, you and I were / Sunrise, sunburn, sunset, repeat.
