Luke Bryan recently spent some quality time fishing with his mom, LeClaire. 

The “But I Got A Beer In My Hand” is a very busy man these days, so it’s rare that he has the opportunity to enjoy a day off. Between his recent Farm Tour, ongoing Country On Tour, his Las Vegas residency, filming for the upcoming season of American Idol, and preparing for his role as a co-host on the upcoming CMA Awards, Bryan has his hands full. 

Recently, however, he enjoyed one of his favorite pastimes, fishing, with his beloved mom. The superstar documented the moment on social media by sharing a photo of himself with his mom and the large trout they caught together. 

“Love Ya Mama”

“Got to fish with this one this week. Love ya mama,” he sweetly captioned the photo. 

Bryan has never been one to shy away from sharing his love for his mom. Most recently he wished her a happy birthday with a hilarious social media post, offering to send her “beer, cigarette, and fishing money” in honor of the occasion. 

Preparing To Co-Host The CMA Awards

The Georgia native is gearing up to co-host the 57th Annual CMA Awards alongside Peyton Manning for the second consecutive year. Bryan and Manning teamed up to star in a hilarious promo video for the upcoming awards show. The clip showcases the co-hosts rising on horses together as they reflect on hosting the show together for the first time in 2022.

“You know, Peyton, hosting the CMA Awards with you was truly something special,” Bryan says as “On the Road Again” by Willie Nelson plays in the background. 

Manning gets a phone call that interrupts their conversation. 

“Wait a minute. You want us to host the CMA Awards again?” he says. “I got to be honest, we’re in the middle of riding off into the sunset.”

“They want us to host again?” Bryan asks. “If I turn my back on the CMA Awards, what kind of hosting icon would I be?”

“Hosting icons, plural. They called my phone,” Manning points out. 

Duty calls so they decide to give co-hosting the CMA Awards another go. 

The pair will return to host “Country Music’s Biggest Night” on Nov. 8 at 8pm EST on ABC. 

Set To Wrap Country On Tour This Week

Until then, fans can catch Bryan on the road for the remainder of his Country On Tour. The trek is set to wrap this week with shows in Raleigh, North Carolina (Oct. 26), Charlottesville, VA (Oct. 27), and Charleston, SC (Oct. 28). He’s set to return to Las Vegas for the final dates of his residency in December and January. 

Crash My Playa 2024

On January 17, Luke Bryan will head south of the border for his ninth Crash My Playa destination event at the AAA Four Diamond Awarded Moon Palace Cancún. Attendees will enjoy four nights of country music on a beautiful stretch of white sand beach.
