Luke Bryan to Shake Up Hollywood Bowl
Luke Bryan, along with his snug-fitting jeans and backwards baseball cap, has swept the nation leaving the crowds singing and the ladies swooning all across the states. This October the country sensation will make Southern California his stomping grounds as the “That’s My Kind of Night Tour” rolls into the Hollywood Bowl on Oct. 25, with opening acts Lee Brice and Cole Swindell warming up the stage.
Bryan trademarked himself in 2007 with debut album “I’ll Stay Me” producing the Top 10 hits “All My Friends Say” and “Country Man.” His career grew more successful with the drop of sophomore album “Doin’ My Thing,” which gave birth to three consecutive number one singles: “Do I,” “Someone Else Calling You Baby,” and “Rain is a Good Thing.” However, Bryan’s star status didn’t become the tangible force it is today until his breakout ditty “Country Girl (Shake It For Me)” in 2010, which earned him the Academy of Country Music Awards 2010 Top New Artist.
In addition to his top-charting tunes, Bryan’s popularity among his fans has been proven due to his Academy of Country Music Top New Male and Top New Artist honors. He was also granted USA Weekend Breakthrough Artist of the Year at the CMT Music Awards. Additionally, he respectively scored back-to-back ACM Artist of the Year and Male Artist of the Year honors in 2012 and 2013. As if the American Country Music Awards had not given Bryan enough, he also snagged 2013 ACM Entertainer of the Year. His most recent decorations include a shout-out from Billboard Music Awards granting him 2014 Top Country Album for “Crash My Party” and Top Country Artist.
If you think the “Roller Coaster” singer has plans to tap the brakes, think again. In most recent country music news, Luke Bryan tallied three 2014 CMA nominations including Entertainer of the Year, Album of the Year for “Crash My Party,” and Male Vocalist of the Year. As always, he is in good company competing against the biggest names in today’s music scene including Blake Shelton, Keith Urban, Dierks Bentley, George Strait, and Miranda Lambert to name a few.
