Luke Bryan Releases Behind-the-Scenes Look at Life on Tour
Luke Bryan is one of the biggest country stars. He has been taking over the music scene for the past decade. Today, the American Idol judge gave his fans an inside look at what touring was like before the Coronavirus pandemic. It brings us so much hope for concerts and live music to return soon.
Luke Bryan Releases Behind-the-Scenes Concert Footage
On Bryan’s YouTube page, a video called Inspiration Behind the Music: Episode 1 was posted including glimpses of some behind-the-scenes concert footage. The video features his song “Waves,” which is on the Deluxe Edition of his album Born Here Live Here Die Here.
At the beginning of the video, Bryan can be seen entertaining a huge crowd of fans. He then tosses his microphone out into the crowd.
“Spontaneity and not over planning it’s kind of always what I wanted to keep in my show,” Bryan said in a voiceover. “I know when they come to see me they’re here to get away and to have fun and it’s my job to facilitate that.”
Fans also get to see glimpses of Bryan practicing in an empty stadium, playing the guitar, and singing in the studio. The video features shots of concert-goers singing along to his catchy lyrics looking like they are having the time of their lives as he owns the stage.
Obviously, all of the footage was filmed before the pandemic, but it really makes us miss the feeling of hearing live country music.
“I want them to truly know that I’m appreciative and I want them to go ‘that guy tried to end it all up there tonight, he gave all he could'” he said of his fans. “In this many years of doing this business I don’t think I’ve ever walked out there and just half-assed it. I’ve always given my all because at the end of the day I want to outwork everybody that’s my thing.”
Bryan Currently has COVID-19
On Monday, Bryan posted that he contracted COVID-19 and would be missing the first live show. Fans were devastated, and wondered how this would affect the competition.
Paula Abdul filled in for him on the judging panel. There were also some major upcoming twists announced about Season 19 of the show.
Fans are wishing the 44-year-old well on social media.
Bryan tweeted that he would miss being in person to see the Top 16 perform.
We wish Bryan a speedy recovery and hope to see him back on American Idol soon. In the meantime, fans can purchase the Deluxe Edition of Born Here Live Here Die Here on his official website.
