As the latest Luke Bryan single, “Most People Are Good,” climbs the charts, it’s reaching out to many communities.
The chorus of the song, written by David Frasier, Ed Hill and Josh Kear, goes:
“I believe most people are good / And most mama’s ought to qualify for sainthood / I believe most Friday nights look better under neon or stadium lights / I believe you love who you love / Ain’t nothing you should ever be ashamed of.”
The song’s message resonated strongly with Bryan, but also with the LGBT community. He told Pop Culture:
“The first time I heard the song I was just so enamored with the whole body of the work of the song, and everything it was saying and doing. That line kinda bypassed me as somebody in the LGBT community latching onto it. I mean I just heard it as just love, I kind of heard it as just a love line. I didn’t really pick it apart that way.
“And I will be truthful,” he further said, “I thought about it as even an inner-racially charged line originally. But that’s only even after I had multiple listens of the song. And then as people started asking me about it, and going into even recording it, somebody brought up, ‘Would you ever have changed that line? ‘And I would’ve been like, ‘Are you crazy? Not in a million years.'”
