If you go to a Luke Bryan show, you’re bound to get overheated – not only because of his sexy onstage dance moves and nonstop interaction with the audience, but because a lot of his shows are outdoor, and many of the cities he’s visited have been having record heat waves. So, how does this country boy stay cool onstage? “With playing really, really hot amphitheaters, you just have to remember throughout the day what you’re fixin’ to have to get up there and do,” says Luke. “For me, I love getting out there and sweatin’ and workin’. I mean, I grew up in South Georgia workin’ in the heat and I love getting out there and flushing out all the ole, the beer from last night out.” Luke isn’t too concerned about himself, but more about his fans. “In that scenario, I worry about the fans, ‘cause really, they’re out there drinking beer all day and you just worry about their safety and them being hydrated. I’ve got enough people checking on me and looking after me, so I’ll be taken care of.”
Luke Bryan has been tapped to perform during the annual Muscular Dystrophy Association’s Labor Day Weekend special, now titled MDA Show of Strength. Luke will join other such performers as Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw, Pitbull, Will.i.am, Carole King and Hot Chelle Rae, among others.
The show, featuring more than a dozen of today’s top entertainers, also will include inspirational “stories of strength” about families affected by muscular dystrophy and related diseases.
The three-hour special is scheduled to air Sunday, September 2nd at 8pm ET.
