Luke Bryan Celebrates Number One Hits During CMA Fest

Luke Bryan spent a full day celebrating his fans and Music Row during CMA Fest on Friday (June 8th). The superstar’s day began by hosting a fan club party for his Nuthouse fans where he celebrated their 10th year and performed a private acoustic concert.  Next stop was the CMA Close Up Stage at Xfinity Fan Fair X where he talked about his What Makes You Country tour with Live Nation’s Brian O’Connell. American Idol winner Maddie Poppe also joined the panel and surprised the crowd with a performance. 

Luke ended his day with a triple Number One party in celebration of with his co-writers on “Move” (Luke Bryan, Michael Carter and Jay Clementi), “Fast” (Luke Bryan, Rodney Clawson and Luke Laird) and “Light It Up” (Luke Bryan and Brad Tursi). Although he hasn’t celebrated it yet, Luke recently charted his career 20th Number One with “Most People Are Good,” a feat he says he still can’t wrap his mind around. He tells us the magnitude of his success struck him during a recent conversation with his manager. [“I think like the Hall of Fame, Country Music Hall of Fame balloting was out or something and I think I had just had my 20th Number One and Kerrie was like, ‘Luke, it says here on Brooks & Dunn’s stat that they’ve had 20 Number Ones,’ and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, what the hell have I done?’ (songwriters laugh) I’m like, ‘How have I gotten there,’ cause I would’ve never even imagined to be around a number like that with Brooks & Dunn.”] SOUNDCUE (:31 OC: . . .

Luke closed out CMA Fest in Nashville last night (Sunday, June 10th) with a performance at Nissan Stadium. His What Makes You Country tour continues on Thursday (June 14th) in Columbia, MD with special guest Jon Pardi and Morgan Wallen.
