Love it Gone

Album: Kill the Lights (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • Luke Bryan explained the theme of this Jody Stevens and Jay Clementi penned song to Taste of Country. "Who hasn't been there?" he said. "Who hasn't had a heck of a day where they're just over it, and getting home to your wife... this comes at it where, a lot of times when I get home I know Caroline's pretty stressed out about it, and I know so many other people are. This song is about that: 'Let me take you in my arms, and hopefully I can do a little something to help.' It's a cool sentiment and very hooky."
  • The track takes a more traditional approach than many of the more contemporary-sounding cuts on Kill the Lights. "This song has a totally, totally retro feel," Bryan observed. "It feels like kind of a throwback to older country with the beat and how it lays out, so I'm excited to put that on the record. It's definitely a big ol' country song."
