Country superstar and two-time CMA Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan brought his energetic live show to CMA Summer Jam, performing a trio of his chart-topping hits in the heart of Music City.
The Georgia native shared performances of “Waves,” “Down To One,” and “Country Girl (Shake It For Me)” as fans packed inside Nashville’s Ascend Amphitheater sang along to every word.
“I just try to go out there and give it my all every night and have fun and connect with the crowds and be loose and fun, but play songs that fans wanna hear and play songs that put smiles on all of the fan’s faces and uh it’s gonna be a great time out there tonight,” Bryan shared ahead of his performance.
