Luke Bryan, a two-time Academy of Country Music and a two-time Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year, proved his superstar status with the kick off of his Sunset Repeat Tour over the weekend.
Opening the 30+ date tour with a sold-out show at the BB&T Pavilion in Camden, New Jersey, Bryan delivered a top-notch show and had fans in the palm of his hand throughout his nearly two-hour set.
The American Idol judge made quite the entrance, singing his chart-topping hit “What Makes You Country” while riding onto the stage on an ATV.
Songs like “Rain Is A Good Thing” and “That’s My Kind Of Night” had fans dancing and singing along, while ballads such as “Do I” and “Strip It Down” allowed for more intimate moments in the show. Bryan’s performance of his latest single, “Knockin’ Boots,” was also a highlight.
Fellow hitmaker Cole Swindell got fans on their feet and ready for Luke Bryan with an energetic set that featured his biggest hits, including “You Should Be Here,” “Middle of a Memory” and “Ain’t Worth the Whiskey.” He also surprised the crowd with a cover of Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road.”
Rising star Jon Langston opened the show with a crowd-pleasing set and likely made a few new fans after his performance.
Much to fans’ delight, Swindell and Langston later returned to the stage to sing David Lee Murphy’s “Dust On The Bottle” with Bryan.
