Luke Bryan is a superstar today with twenty-seven number-one country songs to his credit. He is also a TV star as he is placed firmly as a celebrated Judge along with Katy Perry and Lionel Richie on TV’s American Idol.
Last month, Bryan was rehearsing for his “Country On Tour” in the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville during CMA Fest week. He had some of his people go out into the street, which was full of CMA Fest fans from all over the world, and gather about 30 of them inside for something unique. The fans did not know what or who to expect, and then Luke appeared. When he entered the room, he said, “Alright, you all ready?” The fans erupted into cheers and screams.
Bryan then sang his new song “Beer In My Hand” for the intimate crowd, walking around meeting the fans and taking selfies with them. Luke posted a video clip of what happened on Instagram; he captioned the post, “I’ve always wanted to do that. Anything can happen at #CMAfest! #BeerInMyHand.”
As he currently tours the country on his summer dates for his “Country On Tour,” he recently announced that he will headline his fourteenth “Farm Tour” this September during a break from his “Country On Tour.” The Georgia native will set up stages in the fields of local farms from September 14-23, 2023.
Luke said of his Farm tradition, “One of the reasons we created these Farm Tour shows – to bring the big-city tour to the people. These nights are one-of-a-kind, and we really enjoy getting to know the farmers and their families; we love the whole atmosphere of playing on these incredible farms and watching entire communities come together and get excited about these shows.”
