Luke Bryan sang a “Down To One” duet with his biggest little fan, Darci Claire, on Saturday (July 17) when his headlining Proud To Be Right Here Tour stopped in Bristow, Virginia. 

After spotting Darci in the front row singing along to “Waves,” the superstar invited her to join him on stage.

“That was awesome,” he told her. “Come here!” 

Darci, who was sporting a homemade “Country Girl Shake It For Me” t-shirt, then joined him to sing “Down To One” as he asked her, “Do you know this one?” 

As thousands of fans watched on, Darci belted out the lyrics to the chart-topping hit with the ACM Entertainer of the Year’s arm around her. 

After stealing the show with her adorable performance, the 7-year-old returned to her seat as Bryan shouted, “Y’all give it up for Darci!”

Bryan’s show in Bristow was a memorable one as he celebrated his 45th birthday with his family on the road. He received a special custom cake backstage with his wife, Caroline, and children by his side. 

Caroline even brought a piñata and sported a “halfway to 90” shirt to celebrate Bryan’s big day.
