Luke Bryan’s 5th Annual “Crash My Playa” Showcase Taking Shape With Thomas Rhett, Dustin Lynch & Lauren Alaina

Luke Bryan’s 5th annual Crash My Playa concerts on January 23–26 in Riviera Maya, Mexico, are taking shape with the announcement of headliner Thomas Rhett and performers Dustin Lynch and Lauren Alaina. TR and Lauren will be making their first appearances at Crash My Playa, while Dustin will return for the fifth time.

“So excited to have Thomas Rhett and Lauren join us for the first time at Playa,” says Luke. “I can’t even imagine doing these shows without Dustin a part of it. This makes five for five.”

During the four-night concert vacation on the beach, Luke will headline two nights, including his Luke & Friends set. Additional artists, details about poolside performances and more event updates will be revealed in the coming weeks.

Event packages are on sale now.

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
