Luke Bryan is once again giving credit where it’s due by thanking his fans, who have been with the Georgia boy since way before he was named the 2015 ACM Entertainer of the Year.
In this new video, Bryan takes a trip down memory lane to the earliest moments of his career, when very few country music fans even knew his name.
Heck, he hadn’t ‘shook it’ for anyone yet.
The video serves as just another thank you note to his fans, who voted him in as ACM Entertainer of the Year on April 19. Unfortunately, Bryan wasn’t given nearly enough time to thank everyone on his list. ”I had 18 seconds,” remarked Bryan during a press conference after the ACM Awards. “That’s the nature of awards shows. As a host, I saw the stress on people’s faces backstage about trying to have the show run over.”
Despite the time restriction, Bryan says he is more than ready to celebrate with his friends and family and fans. “This is a time to jump up and down and celebrate,” he said. “[ACM Awards co-host] Blake [Shelton] and I have both been there in our careers where if we didn’t have another hit, we would be done. So yes, to be here on the 50th anniversary of the awards and win is very special.”
