• LUKE BRYAN WRAPS EIGHTH SOLD-OUT CRASH MY PLAYA EVENT.

    Luke Bryan’s annual all-inclusive concert vacation, Crash My Playa, wrapped Sunday night in Riviera Cancún, Mexico with its eighth sold-out event. The event took place at the incredible AAA Four Diamond Awarded Moon Palace Cancún, featuring four nights of country music on a private stretch of white sand beach. Fans were treated to two headline concerts by Luke, with Lionel Richie joining as special guest on Sunday night, as well as Cole Swindell and Chris Stapleton headlining their own nights. Additional performances throughout the event included Dustin Lynch, who hosted an all-day edition of his infamous pool party, Ashley McBryde, Brian Kelley, Carly Pearce, Chase Rice, Dylan Scott, Chayce Beckham, Alana Springsteen, Kendell Marvel and DJ Rock.

    Crash My Playa kicked off last Thursday, January 19 with four fun filled days of performances with daily pool parties, nightly concerts, and late-night party sets. Fans experience one-of-a-kind performances from all the artists participating as they joined each other on stage or as they cheered each other on from side of stage. On Sunday evening, Luke closed out the four-day event with a special “Luke & Friends” set welcoming special guest Lionel Richie along with Chayce Beckham, Brian Kelley, Dylan Scott and Dustin Lynch.

    “Year after year we aim to grow the music experience and the vacation experience to new heights,” shared Luke. “And I feel we did that this year.  Cole and Chris both knocked it out of the park with their headline sets. It was so fun to watch. And special thanks to my dear friend Lionel Richie for making our closing night even more special by joining me on stage for an evening I will never forget!  Playa is truly a highlight of my year by watching these fans and the artists have fun in the Mexico sun.”

    On February 19th, Luke returns to the small screen with Lionel Richie and Katy Perry for their sixth season as celebrity judges on ABC’s American Idol.

  • LUKE BRYAN TAKES HIS PARTY TO MEXICO FOR HIS ANNUAL “CRASH MY PLAYA” EVENT.

    Luke Bryan kicks off his annual CRASH MY PLAYA event Thursday (January 19th). The four-day event, which takes place Thursday through Sunday (January 22nd) at the AAA Four Diamond Awarded Moon Palace Cancun.

    Luke says he tries to up the “fun” quotient every year. “I think anytime people can be in the cold up in the United States or wherever they’re at in the world and it’s cold and dreary and you can come down to Mexico and get in the ocean and it’s like 85 degrees, you can stand there with your toes in the sand and listen to great country music and every year we have new artists that show up,” he says. “And I love the fact that we get a lot of new talent down there, some artists that are just getting their career going, and the fact that Dustin Lynch does his pool party every year, it’s one of the most amazing moments of the week. But I think the fans get down there and have a blast. We try to make it more fun every year.”

    On February 19th, Luke, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie are back for their sixth season as celebrity judges on ABC’s American Idol.

  • NEW YEARS 2022

    For several country stars, they’ll be ringing in the new year with Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Little Big Town, Kelsea Ballerini, Brooks & Dunn and Zac Brown Band in Nashville on New Year’s Eve as CBS presents NEW YEAR’S EVE LIVE: NASHVILLE’S BIG BASH on Saturday (December 31st) at 8-11pm ET/PT and 11:30pm-1:30am ET/PT.

    JOHN: “I think it’s kind of funny how we spend literally the last moment and the very first moment of every year being extremely intoxicated, extremely, because you don’t want to wait until like 12:30 to get your buzz on. You’ve got to do it before midnight, and then once midnight happens, you’re like, ‘Omigod! Now it’s time to celebrate even more.’ Debauchery is the literally bookending your entire year.” TJ: “I love how everyone starts the year off with diets and then we end the year with like excessive amounts of food. And then you get to the end of the year, you’re like, ‘Oh, I’m going to start a diet on the 1st, so I’m going to eat everything that’s in front of me.’ I love it.” JOHN: “And come February 1st, ‘what diet?’” [laughs] TJ: “What diet? I’ll start it next month.” [laughs]

    “Nashville’s just, people just can’t get enough of it. I mean they’re just crazy about this city. They’re crazy about the music. You can feel it from the, well, you can feel it from the real estate housing market to Lower Broadway, and it’s just unbelievable. So, I think, I just know people across the country if they had a choice to watch – nothing against New York – but that or actually see their favorite city on TV with all of their favorite artists performing from the big, Bicentennial Mall stage to Miranda’s bar, my bar, Luke’s bar, Aldean’s bar, I mean it’s unbelievable. I can’t imagine it won’t be the most exciting thing to see on TV for all of the country fans out there. It’s long overdue to have, for our city to have a New Year’s Eve show. And again, nothing against the other cities or whatnot, but it’s just they’re not Nashville. And Nashville, it’s hot. It’s hot right now, and it has been for a long time. So, this is gonna be a lot of fun to be a part of, and I think people across the country are gonna love watching it.”

We were usually up in a little cabin up in the mountains, and we had a black and white TV and we’d watch the ball drop. I would’ve rather been back home in Phoenix with all my friends going to a lot of parties, but my parents kind of sequestered us in the mountains. So, not a lot of fun traditions growing up. Now, I love watching the Nashville New Year’s Eve show. So fun.”

We’re boys, you know? So, we just literally walked right over and burned the house down. That was one of my favorite New Year’s Eve memories, ‘cause I got to see my sister and brother-in-law get married and that was such a great, great time, and then me and my older cousin and best friend, we ended up at Waffle House that night, so it was good.”

  • LUKE BRYAN SCORES HIS 30TH CAREER NO. 1 SONG WITH “COUNTRY ON.”

    Luke Bryan lands his 30th career #1 single today with “Country On” hitting the top of the Mediabase charts.  The song was written by Mark Nesler, David Frasier, Mitch Oglesby, and Styles Haury, produced by Jeff Stevens, co-produced by Jody Stevens, and features Sarah Buxton on background vocals. In his career Luke has amassed 56 total weeks at #1 including “Country On.”

    “Country On” is the first single from new music planned for release in 2023.

    The five-time Entertainer of the Year spoke to MusicRow Magazine exclusively today; here is an excerpt:

    “According to Bryan, the secret to his longevity is both being able to write songs and find outside songs. 12 of his 30 No. 1 hits were co-written by Bryan. ‘I looked at all my heroes—guys like George Strait and Brooks & Dunn—all of my heroes wrote songs and they found songs, too.’ He also points out that it’s been crucial to him to pay attention to the next generation of hit-makers. ‘Somewhere in Nashville, there’s young songwriters writing right now with a fresh approach and a new way to say stuff. For me, it’s always fun to really open up to the whole town to try to find new songs,’ he says. ‘The little nuances of production in their demos.’”

    “It’s fitting that Bryan’s 30th No. 1 hit, “Country On,” evokes the spirit of his lasting career. He sings, “Hey Nashville, keep bending them strings. Diggin’ for gold, chasin’ them dreams. Keep on with your songs ’til the whole worlds singin’ along.” ‘What I love about that song [Country On] is it’s got a lot of the same feelings of an Alabama song, like ‘Forty Hour Week (For a Livin’)’ or ‘Roll On (Eighteen Wheeler).’ That song just speaks to the hardworking Americans out there. In my opinion, a lot of the people that I reference in that song make the world go around. ‘I’ve never really done a song that had patriotic aspects to it,’ he shares. ‘When we say, ‘Hey, hey, USA. We ain’t seen our better days,’ that’s a come-together moment. I couldn’t have hand-picked a better 30th.’”

    Luke wraps a stellar touring year playing for one million fans including his “Crash My Playa,” “Raised Up Right Tour,” “Farm Tour,” festival dates and his exclusive Las Vegas headlining engagement at the new Resorts World Theatre with additional 2023 shows on sale now.

    In November for the second consecutive year, Luke hosted the ABC Special, “On the Road to the CMA Awards” and he and NFL great Peyton Manning hosted “The 56th Annual CMA Awards.”

    This fall Luke launched Jockey Outdoors™ collection with the apparel company and during 2020-2022 he and wife Caroline were Jockey brand ambassadors as part of their ad campaign, “There’s Only One Jockey™.”

    In their Tennessee home county, Caroline and Luke are serving as co-chair and honorary co-chair, respectively, for the Williamson Medical Center capital campaign to help fund a major renovation and expansion project.

    Luke’s charitable endeavors included donating proceeds from his Estero, Florida concert to the Florida Disaster Fund in November after Hurricane Ian ravaged that area of the state and many contributions through his yearly Farm Tour. He again gave scholarships to students from farming families who are attending the local college or university near the tour stops. He continued a partnership with Bayer to help celebrate America’s farmers and fight hunger through its #HerestotheFarmer campaign providing more than 6 million meals and more than $180,000 going to Feeding America member food banks and local farmers at each of the tour cities. He teamed up with the National Pork Board in their on-going campaign to dispel common misconceptions about modern pig farming as they in turn partnered with Farmland® to donate a truckload of protein to local foodbanks in each of the states that hosted the six Farm Tour stops. Farmland also donated $9,000 to each state’s FFA Association. Luke joined Farm Tour sponsor Fendt in creating the Luke Bryan’s Boldly Grown Popcorn, a limited-edition packaged snack. When the limited supply sold-out, Fendt donated $25,000 to the National FFA Organization, the premier youth organization that prepares members for leadership and careers in the science, business, and technology of agriculture.

    Luke Bryan (Country On) OC: …people out there. :29
    “When you hear, ‘Hey Farm Boy…’ I mean that certainly spoke to me right off the bat, and the fact that we were able to put so many different aspects of the way, the country American way of life out there, and I felt like this song really, really nailed it. It was something that really spoke to my heart and being able to put it out in the heart of summer, right against the Fourth of July, I feel it’s gonna talk to, speak to a lot of people out there.”

  • CHRISTMAS 2022: Luke Bryan

    Luke Bryan and his family have a few different traditions for Christmas, but one of the most enduring one for the Bryan family is dressing up in holiday PJs and having chili dogs on Christmas Eve.

    “We have a pajama night and we do chili dogs on Christmas Eve, and we’ve always done that.  My mother comes up and we go shop. She makes me go shop with her, so we have to pick out all the right stuff. We have to get the proper buns, the proper wieners. It’s very important.  All beef wieners for the chili dog cooking. It’s a ritual. So, we’re eating chili dogs in pajamas, and so it’s special anytime you can come up with fun traditions and hold true to them. Yeah, so cooking chili dogs in a onesie is pretty special.”

    No word on what his wife Caroline will be getting him this year, but he does say her gift a few years ago was the most meaningful — she tracked down his late brother’s truck and presented it to him one Christmas. “By far the best Christmas present I have ever gotten and will ever get was when my wife Caroline went and found my brother’s old pickup truck from 1996 that they found the VIN number and it was down in Louisiana and it was still on the road.  And her and my dad went down, they picked it up, brought it to Nashville and Christmas Eve night pulled into the driveway with it, and let’s just say that yes, the tears were flowing, and it will never be topped. I don’t know how you’ll ever top it. What an amazing moment for me and my family and it was pretty special.  And that truck is where we do our turkey hunting; it’s the turkey hunting truck. So, all my turkey hunting gear stays in there, and when the boys see me pull up in my brother’s truck, they know we’re fixing to go turkey hunting.”

    Also, one of his favorite Christmas gifts as a child had wheels and a motor, as well. “My favorite Christmas gift is definitely my first Honda 50 motorcycle that I got back in 1984. It was just an amazing gift to have under the tree, and I never will forget seeing that as I walked out.”

    This year, plans might be altered slightly since Luke’s wife Caroline had hip surgery recently. During the holidays, the Bryan fam usually goes to the mountains and go skiing, plus the country superstar also takes his boys out hunting.

    Find audio below of him talking about the unique tradition, his most meaningful Christmas gift, his favorite Christmas movie and much more.

    Luke is poised to climb to the top of the country charts with his latest single, “Country On.”

    “Mainly the holidays is just (A) just kind of slowing down, being around the house, hopefully not having this crazy, crazy busy schedule. Another thing is just being with the family, obviously. We travel a little bit, but then we try not get too spread out with all the family, but bringing the family in and just having a good old-fashioned Christmas. And then obviously, I like to try to do some duck hunting and deer hunting and taking the boys into the woods, and then at some point in the holidays, we’ll always try to get a little ski trip in or something. My boys are really into going up to the mountains and doing some skiing, but we stay pretty busy. Like anything, it goes by fast, ‘cause we’re waking up every day and really enjoying the day. Yeah, Caroline is recovering from a hip surgery, so she’s a little bit more tied to being around the house, which is certainly not very comfortable for her. She likes to move around, get around a lot, so we’ll just keep some fires burning in the fireplace and just make it a great holiday.”

    Luke Bryan (Bryan Christmas tradition) OC: …pretty special. :41
    “We have a pajama night and we do chili dogs on Christmas Eve, and we’ve always done that.  My mother comes up and we go shop. She makes me go shop with her, so we have to pick out all the right stuff. We have to get the proper buns, the proper wieners. It’s very important.  All beef wieners for the chili dog cooking. It’s a ritual. So, we’re eating chili dogs in pajamas, and so it’s special anytime you can come up with fun traditions and hold true to them. Yeah, so cooking chili dogs in a onesie is pretty special.”

    Luke Bryan (Most meaningful Christmas gift) OC: …turkey hunting. :55
    “By far the best Christmas present I have ever gotten and will ever get was when my wife Caroline went and found my brother’s old pickup truck from 1996 that they found the VIN number and it was down in Louisiana and it was still on the road.  And her and my dad went down, they picked it up, brought it to Nashville and Christmas Eve night pulled into the driveway with it, and let’s just say that yes, the tears were flowing, and it will never be topped. I don’t know how you’ll ever top it. What an amazing moment for me and my family and it was pretty special.  And that truck is where we do our turkey hunting; it’s the turkey hunting truck. So, all my turkey hunting gear stays in there, and when the boys see me pull up in my brother’s truck, they know we’re fixing to go turkey hunting.”

    Luke Bryan (favorite thing about Christmas) OC: …special time. :32
    “My favorite part of the holidays obviously is watching the kids – watching the boys’ excitement for what they may or may not be getting and watching them tear open Christmas presents on Christmas morning. You got the fireplace going. You got Christmas music on the TV. You’ve got – you get up at 6am. You’re exhausted and you’ve got all your family there.  It doesn’t get any better than certainly waking up on Christmas mornings and just having that special time.”
