His signature gravelly growl serves as an anchor for traditionalist values reminiscent of 90s country which have been showcased on his previously two albums.
However, what sets Growin' Up apart from past releases has nothing to do with Eric Church’s cameo - it’s all about Luke operating at larger scale; he even recruited Miranda Lambert who adds her own flavor into the mix!
