Luke Bryan Says Wife Inspired “Country Girl (Shake It for Me)”

But he retains some old frat-boy behavior on the road: The bus is stocked with beer, whiskey, video games.

Ya know, it’s an interesting question: Why did a married father of two little ones co-write a song—“Country Girl (Shake It for Me)”—that encourages the ladies to shake it for the birds, shake it for the bees?

And it's a question the Green Bay Press Gazette wasn’t afraid to ask.

Turns out, Luke tells the newspaper, that his wife, Caroline, inspired the song—or so he says.

“The inspiration is my wife and I in college used to go to the big nightclubs, dance all night and have a great time,” he said.

Oookay . . .

During college, Luke was a fraternity guy at Georgia Southern University, and you can take the guy out of the fraternity, but can you really take the fraternity out of the guy?

Asked what's on his tour bus now, Luke listed beer, whiskey, guitars, PlayStations and some games.
