If you’re a college football fan, then you know it was an important weekend as regional conference winners faced off for conference championship bragging rights. And with so many country music artists hailing from Georgia, a lot of eyes were on the SEC championship game between the University of Georgia Bulldogs and Auburn University’s Tigers, including Luke Bryan’s.
That might be because, in addition to the conference title, this weekend’s games are also important in that they determine what bowl game each team will be assigned to.
That’s a lot riding on these young fellas’ shoulders, y’all, but they seem to be unfazed by the pressure.
On the other hand, Luke’s anxiety was written all over his face. Actually, his entire body.
Luke’s wife, Caroline, shared a video on her Instagram page while the family was tuned into the game. And after one pivotal play where Auburn fumbled the ball and Georgia recovered, her country superstar hubs just had to let some of that anxiety and energy out.
We’ve never quite seen him move like this before.
Anybody else hearing Brothers Osborne’s “It Ain’t My Fault” under all that clapping?
Here’s the play that garnered the Rare Country Awards nominee’s enthusiastic response:
Now, Luke was actually a student at Georgia Southern University, but as many folks do with their home state team, he was obviously pulling for the University of Georgia. The Dec. 2 win gave Georgia the SEC championship, but it also earned them a highly coveted spot against Oklahoma in the 2018 Rose Bowl.
Damn Good Dawgs versus Boomer Sooners? It’s gonna get loud in Pasadena, California, on Jan. 1, y’all.
Auburn isn’t completely finished with its season, though. The War Eagles will play UCF in the Peach Bowl on Jan. 1 as well.
Another New Year’s Day game to watch will be the Sugar Bowl. Last year’s national champion Clemson Tigers, who boast Lee Brice as an alumnus, go toe-to-toe with 16-time national champions Alabama’s Crimson Tide. The two teams played each other in last year’s national championship game, so it will likely be an intense game. Not to mention, the winner of that game will play the winner of the Peach Bowl for the 2017-2018 national title.
If that’s way too much football talk for you, then take a break and head on over to the Rare Country Awards web site and give Luke Bryan a vote or two. He’s nominated for Fan Moment, Tour and Male Artist of the Year, and it’s up to you to decide the winners. Vote now through Dec. 13 at RareCountryAwards.com. Winners will be revealed during a livestreamed concert event on Dec. 14 in Nashville.
