Luke Bryan Is Proud To Be Right Back on the Stage as His Tour Launches

Luke Bryan kicked off his Proud To Be Right Here tour last night in Syracuse, NY.

He was excited to get back on stage and share musical moments with the crowd – like when he sang his latest hit “Waves.”

Luke shared, “I’ve been waiting to perform these new songs for y’all for a while now. New York did us right! Amazing kick off to the Proud To Be Right Here Tour. Feels good to be back!”

But being on stage performing is only one part of what Luke missed. It’s also the backstage moments – hanging with his openers like Dylan Scott, Caylee Hammack and the ladies of Runaway June. It’s those candid moments where Luke not only gets to know his fellow artists better, but it also sparks new creative ideas.

Luke says, “I mean, I’m really excited about those little opportunities to have fun song ideas. I mean, when you’re hanging after a show, you know, having some drinks, talking, cuttin’ up, you get fun song ideas. And you’re like, ‘Hey, we need to write this idea’.”

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
