Luke Bryan is set to perform during Good Morning America’s “Summer Concert Series” on Friday (July 13th). Now in its fourth year, the series features music’s biggest names, with performances held in New York City’s Central Park. Fans can catch Luke’s performance between 7:00-9:00am on ABC.

“I have a big smile on my face every time I talk about being on Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series,” says Luke. “Life’s good. To be a kid from Leesburg, Georgia, and to now be at the point in my career where I’m performing on Good Morning America in the heart of New York City at one of the most recognizable places in the world makes me super excited. It’s gonna be fun.”

The concert is free and open to the public. Viewers interested in joining “GMA” in Central Park are encouraged to arrive at Rumsey Playfield via the 72nd street entrance on Fifth Avenue at 6:00am when the park opens. For more information on how to attend, click on the “GMA” web site at

Luke just came off of a two-week run at the top of the charts with “Drunk on You” from his platinum-certified tailgates & tanlines album. He’s getting ready to release his next single from the same album in the coming weeks.

“With me, New York City’s just about kinda getting out there and…trying to find a great restaurant, and it seems like I’m always around Times Square and getting out there and see a little bit of that and seeing Central Park and taking a little bit of that in. I’ve yet to do the World Trade Center location…I’ve never really had time to do tourist-y stuff. It’s, I’m typically there doing business and media stuff, but I love being in the city, and it’s fun.”
