Did y’all catch the “CMA Country Christmas” special Monday night on ABC? There were so many amazing performances, but one in particular really moved us—Luke Bryan’s beautiful rendition of the Christmas classic, “O Holy Night.”
It was Luke like you’ve never heard him before.
Dressed in a sharp, black suit with a dark gray shirt, Luke reverently and soulfully delivered the iconic holiday song accompanied by an orchestra with a beautiful snowy backdrop.
It was pretty perfect, guys … and a great reminder that if you thought Luke was all tailgates and tanlines, you were so wrong.
Luke’s buddies discovery, long brother act CB30, also performed as part of the big night, along with Little Big Town, Kelsea Ballerini, Dustin Lynch, Brett Eldredge, Dan + Shay, Lady Antebellum, Alan Jackson, Trisha Yearwood, Chris Young, CeCe Winans and host Reba McEntire. When cameras weren’t rolling during the show’s mid-November taping, Luke joked to Reba that he got his sharp suit at Walmart “on layaway.” More details on that and nine other behind-the-scenes moments you didn’t see on TV can be found here.
Luke’s year isn’t quite over yet. He’s up for Tour of the Year, Fan Moment of the Year and Male Artist of the Year in the 2017 Rare Country Awards. You can head over to RareCountryAwards.com right now to cast your votes!
