Luke Bryan is one of Nashville's top stars, but he can't stop himself from skipping town for just one more Spring Break. His seventh and final entry in the seasonal series pairs five new tracks with a few first released in 2014. The 38-year-old makes it all seem romantic, even when he's winking at his own advancing age: "This ain't the first time we've partied under these stars." There's a little heartbreak here and there, but drinking — a constant theme, naturally — helps wash it away. Everything goes smoothly until "Spring Breakdown," a Solo-cup toast in which Bryan suddenly realizes both the tragedy of youth and the worst part about vacations: that they both eventually end.
