AUDIO: Luke Bryan explains how he puts together a set list for his shows.
Luke Bryan (set list) 092811 OC: …a big bang. :27
“When I sit down and plan a set list, it’s a situation where I want to talk with my band about it and get their opinion. I mean, the whole organization kinda puts their input in on the set list. I like to kinda come out of the gates firing on all cylinders and keep people going. And then at some point, you’ve got to kind of bring it down a little bit and play some of your slower songs; songs that can kind of let people catch their breath, and then, obviously, end with the big songs that end with a big bang.”
