Country star comes home

August 14, 2007

Albany - - A rising country music star kicked off the sale of his debut cd Tuesday evening by returning to his South Georgia roots. 

Capitol Records recording artist Luke Bryan put on a show at Walmart on Ledo Road for hundreds of cheering fans holding posters and snapping photos.

Fans sang along with Bryan before getting signed copies of his brand new cd.

"This is the first day of about a three week promotional tour to sell the record so we didn't want to start anywhere else than right here in Walmart and in Leesburg and Albany," Bryan says.

His album is called "I'll Stay Me." He's already opened for big stars like Brooks & Dunn, Sugarland, and Dierks Bentley.
