NEWS AND NOTES: Luke Bryan, Parker McCollum, The War And Treaty, Darius Rucker

Luke Bryan and R&B singer Ne-Yo will headline FanDuel’s inaugural Kentucky Derby Party, which will take place on Friday, May 3rd at Paristown Arts and Entertainment District in Louisville, Kentucky. “Partnering with FanDuel for the Kentucky Derby party is an absolute honor,” said Luke Bryan in a press release. “It’s such an iconic event filled with tradition and history, and I hope fans are ready for an unforgettable night – it’s going to be a party!”

In an interview with CMT Hot 20 Countdown’s Cody Alan, Parker McCollum played “Light It Up or Burn It Down.” Parker was also surprised to find out his “Burn It Down” video was No. 1 on the countdown.


The War And Treaty were special guests at the WWE’s Smackdown and Wrestlemania 40. One-half of the duo, Michael Trotter, Jr., got to meet one of his idols, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. In one social post, Michael wrote, “In the 90s, the height of the bullying almost took me out of the race. My mom was so tired of seeing me come home and lock myself in my room to cry. I needed something strong. I needed a new attitude so I did what I knew to do and that was go to WWE to get strength, to get courage, to get me the proper tools to start ‘opening up a can of whoop ass’…If you told that bullied kid that he’d be singing at one of the BIGGEST WRESTLEMANIAS EVER! If you told him he’d meet Triple H and The Rock, and so many others, I’d laugh and say ‘yeah right.’ You’re never too old to see childhood dreams come true.” The Grammy-nominated duo also performed at the huge event.

Darius Rucker was spotted in the stands in Cleveland, Ohio for the women’s final four to watch the South Carolina Gamecocks win Friday night (April 5th) to advance to Sunday’s (April 7th) championship game against the Iowa Hawkeyes. He wasn’t the only famous face in the crowd; Ted Lasso‘s Jason SudekisMachine Gun Kelly and Kylie Kelce, the wife of Super Bowl star and Cleveland Heights native Jason Kelce.


Five-time Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan is releasing a new song today across all digital platforms with “Love You, Miss You, Mean It.” He first showcased the song in late February, performing it during Country Radio Seminar in Nashville at Universal Music Group Nashville’s annual luncheon and then shared the performance with his fans on social media.


“Love You, Miss You, Mean It,” written by Rhett Akins, Ben Hayslip, Jordan Minton and Jacob Rice, will impact country radio on Monday (April 8th). Three major radio chains will spotlight the single- iHeartCountry, Audacy and Beasley. Get the song HERE.


“This song was special from the first time I heard it,” said Luke. “I knew it would resonate. It’s about young love and that whole process of trying to make relationships work through the on again and off again cycles. My wife and I went through that journey during college and I know a lot of people out there have too.”

On April 17th, Luke will kick off his 2024 “Mind Of A Country Boy Tour” in Canada in Calgary’s Scotiabank Saddledome with Chayce Beckham and Tenille Arts joining. The tour will run through mid-September. As he has done for many years, Luke will welcome multiple special guests throughout the tour: Tenille Arts, Chayce Beckham, George Birge, King Calaway, Dillon Carmichael, Larry Fleet, HunterGirl, Ella Langley, Tracy Lawrence, Kameron Marlowe, Chase Matthew, Meghan Patrick, Lily Rose, Josh Ross, Alana Springsteen, Zach Top and DJ Rock. The tour boasts two stadium dates this year, Truist Field in Atlanta on August 17th with Bailey Zimmerman, Kameron Marlowe and Chayce Beckham and Wrigley Field in Chicago on August 25th with Bailey Zimmerman, Tracy Lawrence and Chayce Beckham.

During his career Luke has performed for more than 14 million fans inclusive of his numerous headline tours, “Crash My Playa,” “Luke Bryan: VEGAS” and “Farm Tour.” “Mind Of A Country Boy Tour” is aptly titled after a song from Luke’s highly anticipated upcoming album.

Audio / Luke Bryan talks about his new single, "Love You, Miss You, Mean It."


Luke Bryan (on LYMYMI) OC: …there have too. :23
“‘Love You, Miss You, Mean It’ is obviously about kids falling in love and that was their saying to let each other know that they loved one another. It’s about young love. It’s about going off to college and trying to make that work and it not working and then going full circle. I’ve kind of lived that world with my relationship with my wife and I, and I know a lot of other people out there have too.”
