WHEN: September 14, 2017
WHERE: Berglund Center - Roanoke, VA
One of my favorite things about Roanoke is events like this that bring the community and those of surrounding areas together to enjoy a night of fun and great music, and Luke Bryan is just the guy for that.
The 41-year old country singer/songwriter sure knows how to have fun, deliver to an enthusiastic audience, and put on a stellar show.
Performing a variety of songs, including early hits such as a medley of “All My Friends Say” and”Country Man”, career defining hits such as “Play It Again”, “That’s My Kind of Night”, and “Drunk On You”, and also 2017 single “Light It Up”, the “Huntin', Fishin' and Lovin' Every Day” singer gave an almost two hour show was filled with energy and vivacity, and a whole lot of “lovin'”.
Although he thrives at rocking out the more upbeat songs, fans thoroughly enjoyed the mellower tunes “Strip it Down” and “Drink A Beer”, performed sitting on the piano with his guitar.
Some highlights were interacting with a fan who had a sign that read, "My divorce is almost final - marry me,” mid-show shots of tequila, and a knee-slapping cover of Alabama’s “Mountain Music”. Granger Smith and band opened the show, followed by Brett Eldridge performing a set including hits “Drunk on Your Love” and “Lose My Mind.”
