Luke Bryan is making the most of the summer of 2020.

The four-time Entertainer of the Year typically spends his summers on the road, playing sold-out shows and festivals across the country, however, with the COVID-19 pandemic, Bryan has found himself at home with a lot of free time. Instead of dwelling on the fact that concerts may not return until 2021, Bryan is making the best of the situation and soaking up some well-deserved family time.

In a recent interview with Live With Kelly and Ryan, the “One Margarita” singer shared, “I was like, ‘I had the whole summer off,’ and I’m just doing some bucket list stuff.”

“I loaded all of my boys up on my tour bus and we are hitting about ten trout streams out West that I have always wanted to fish with them at,” he shared.

When host Ryan Seacrest joked with Bryan about why he wasn’t invited on their fishing adventure, the superstar replied, “I just have to protect you.”

He then proceeded to make a deal with his American Idol cohort.

“Ok, here’s the deal,” he reasoned. “One day I will take you fishing and you can take me to these nice restaurants and teach me all of these cuisine things that you know.”

Bryan’s downtime may be coming to an end soon as he’s preparing for the much-anticipated release of his Born Here, Live Here, Die Here album. The project, which drops on August 7, includes the previous chart-topping hits, “What She Wants Tonight” and “One Margarita,” as well as the emotional “Build Me A Daddy.”
