Sam Hunt kicks off Luke Bryan’s Crash My Playa with a dynamic new performance Twitter/@Karen_Clem07

This video from Luke Bryan’s Crash My Playa concert festival in Mexico is giving us serious FOMO — Fear of Missing Out. The fear is real.

Luke’s annual four-night concert extravaganza is like the vacation of your dreams. Taking place at an all-inclusive resort in Riviera Maya, this trip is like nothing you’ve ever experienced before. Because has your vacation ever included beachside concerts by Blake Shelton and Sam Hunt? We didn’t think so!

Luckily for those of us trapped back home in wintry weather, fans are giving us a close-up view of all the action onstage, like this awesome video of Sam Hunt rocking the stage at Playa Azul. Sam headlined the first night of the concert event on Jan. 17.

We have missed you, Sam!

The crowd went wild for the singer’s performance of “Body Like A Back Road,” and he looks just as happy to see all top them as they were to see him!

Sam has taken a bit of a hiatus the last several months to join his wife, Hannah, in her global humanitarian efforts. In case you guys missed it, he posted a beautiful message explaining his absence to fans and followers on Instagram and thanking them for the opportunity to take some time off to be with her.


“Her heart for humanity is one of the things I admire most about her but she’s put her ambitions on hold to be with me for the past year and a half,” he captioned a picture of Hannah on Instagram. “This winter, thanks to the people who’ve supported me and my music, I’m able to go with her and be a part of her dreams as they’ve become mine. If you’ve ever bought a record or come to a show, God bless you for giving us this opportunity,”

Now, he’s back in action, and we are thrilled to see him in that spotlight but also happy that he got some time to spend with his wife and be a part of a world-changing experience helping those in need.

Crash My Playa rocks on until Jan. 20 with concerts both poolside and by the beach. Some of our other favorites are there to join Sam, including Maren Morris and fiancé Ryan Hurd, Brett Young, The Cadillac Three, Dustin Lynch, Maggie Rose, and Luke’s BFF Blake Shelton, of course.

Blake headlines the nightly concerts on Friday, Jan. 19, and you know that’s going to be a total blast!
