Luke Bryan took the stage to perform his brand new single, “Waves,” on American Idol on Sunday evening (May 16).
The superstar took a break from the judges’ panel to join his longtime touring band for a live performance of “Waves.”
The song finds Bryan reminiscing on a summer love.
“You were made for summer / Just like these stars we’re under / We’re made for lighting this July sky up / Blanket down made for me and you tied up,” the Georgia native sang on the Idol stage as images of ocean moved beneath him. “All night long, over and over / Crash into me and pull me closer / Kiss by kiss, one after another / Don’t let go, baby, let this summer / Just keep on coming in waves / Keep coming in waves / Keep on coming in waves / Keep coming in waves.”
Written by Zach Crowell, Ryan Hurd and Chase McGill, “Waves” is featured on the newly-released deluxe version of Bryan’s most recent album, Born Here Live Here Die Here. The song is at country radio now.
The reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year will launch his upcoming Proud To Be Right Here Tour on July 8 in Syracuse, NY. The tour will run through October and will feature special guests Dylan Scott, Caylee Hammack, Runaway June along with DJ Rock.
