Luke Bryan Kicks Off New Tour In Nashville

Country music's most-streamed artist kicked off his new tour in last week in Nashville with two 90-minute sold-out shows featuring the likes of Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild and Cole Swindell.

Who are we talking about? Smiling, tight-jeaned superstar Luke Bryan, of course.

Luke kicked off his Huntin', Fishin' And Lovin' Everyday Tour Friday and Saturday night (5/5-6) at Bridgestone Arena, home of the NHL's Nashville Predators, who themselves are getting a lot of attention as one of the final four final teams vying for the Stanley Cup.

"Any Predators fans out there tonight?" he asked. "Come on Smashville!"

Luke made a point to mention he'd been in the house just days before to take in a playoff game.

"You see that suite up there under Bridgestone?" he asked, pointing towards one side of the arena. "I got really drunk up there Sunday night – I drank a lot of beer."

Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild joined Luke for their hit duet "Home Alone Tonight" before he sat down at a piano for Little Big Town's "Girl Crush" as Karen sang. The hip-shaking superstar followed up with "Drink A Beer," even throwing a few into the crowd at one point.

Plenty of fun was had backstage, too, as Luke was presented with a commemorative plaque celebrating four consecutive years as country music's most-streamed artist.
