Between touring, recording and promoting his music, Luke Bryan knows a thing or two about life being a whirlwind. However, his latest No. 1 hit finds the country singer reflecting on wanting to press “pause” on life’s frantic pace. Luke is set to perform “Fast” during ABC’s annual summer television special, “CMA Fest,” airing Aug. 16, which was filmed in Nashville in June. The superstar previews his performance in the video above.

“Things fly by in this world. I mean, I notice that the days seem to fly by,” Luke tells fans in the video. “It’s like, you wake up; you’re going, going, going, and then you’re like, ‘That’s another day in the books.’ And that kind of drives me crazy. But if I can go have a day fishing with my boys, just go ride around on some four-wheelers and go hunting, that makes things kind of slow down for me.”

“Fast” made history earlier this year when it crested the top of “Billboard’s” Country Airplay chart, making Luke the only artist in the chart’s 27-year history to garner half a dozen No. 1 hits from one album, his 2015 set “Kill The Lights.”

Personally, Luke isn’t showing signs of slowing down any time soon. The father of two will be heading to a city near you on his “Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day Tour” through October, with a slew of special guests in tow.
