There was no booty shaking or drum beat. There was no hip swaying or steel guitar. There were no screaming girls or jumps around the stage. There was just Luke Bryan, with his hand over his heart, leading a crowd of thousands assembled at his a concert in New Jersey in the singing of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
And it was absolutely perfect.
It was exactly how the country superstar from Georgia should have recognized the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, and served as the ideal way to honor all of those who lost their lives on that fateful day.
Bryan had also recently received the good news that he is up for two 2015 CMA Awards this year, nominated for both “Male Vocalist of the Year” along with the coveted “Entertainer of the Year” alongside fellow challengers Garth Brooks, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church and Miranda Lambert.
