Country star Luke Bryan definitely earned some fans and a whole lot of respect too, when he sang a beautiful rendition of The National Anthem earlier this year at the Super Bowl LI. He’s been super busy with his Kill the Lights tour which rapped recently in March but he is kept the performance momentum moving forward and is heading straight into his Huntin’, Fishin’, and Lovin’ Every Day tour which kicks off May 5th in Nashville.
With such a busy and hectic schedule, you can’t blame the guy for wanting to blow off some steam and relax a bit. That’s exactly what Luke did this weekend when he and some friends decided to go to a Nashville Predators playoff game. The team was playing St. Louis on Sunday and Luke, dressed from head to toe in Preds gear was casually watching from a luxury box.
Suddenly, a familiar song begins to play over the stadium sound system and the camera immediately pans to Luke. Clearly amused, and a little embarrassed, Luke finds himself as the center of attention on the stadium dance cam while, perhaps his best known song, Country Girl (Shake It for Me) plays.
Being the awesome person and good sport that he is, Luke smiled, raised his glass to the fans (like any true country boy would do) and gave a little shimmy along with a lasso arm dance move to appease the crowd. Truth be told, it was adorable.
Check out the moment caught on video by TV/Radio host Kelly Sutton:
Earlier in the playoff season, Luke gave an encore performance of his Super Bowl Star Spangled Banner. Luke talked with People about the honor of singing the National Anthem, “Is the anthem challenging? Yes. Is it nerve-wracking? Yes. But I moved to Nashville to follow my dreams and singing the National Anthem on that stage doesn’t get any bigger.”
