Can you imagine seeing Luke Bryan busking on the side of the street? Well, that’s exactly how it started for Luke when he made a move to Nashville.

In a recent interview with Cody Alan, Luke reminisced about the first time he played Nashville. Based on his memory, it wasn’t as sexy or thrilling as playing a huge arena show. Actually, it was honkytonks and street corners.

“Right when I moved to Nashville, I sat on the corner at Legends and played an old acoustic guitar,” shared Luke. “A grand ole opry bus pulled up, some people came in and tipped me $100 bucks, and I thought I had won the lottery. That was amazing.”

Fast forward, Luke has now found himself rocking sold-out arena shows across the US on his, ‘Sunset Repeat Tour.’ The country superstar has also announced that he will wrap his massive trek with a date at Ford Field in Detroit on Oct. 25. This will mark Luke’s 4th consecutive tour close at the home of the Detroit Lions.

“I love a good family tradition, and this has become one!” Bryan says in a press release. “Wrapping up my tour for the fourth time at Ford Field is seriously unbelievable. This crowd brings so much energy and a big party, and I can’t wait to get back there.”
