Luke Bryan Gives Moving Rendition of Star-Spangled Banner for America’s Birthday
Luke Bryan stood tall to show his patriotism during a recent show, singing the national anthem in front of a massive FarmBorough Festival crowd just days before July 4. The artist shared a video on his Facebook page of the moving Star-Spangled Banner performance, which included thousands of fans helping him sing the song ... at the top of their lungs.
Flanked on both sides by fellow patriots waving the American flag, Bryan gave a beautiful, solemn performance with just enough flair to be passionate, but not so much that it took away from the moment. Though he struggled a bit with the famed high note, he cleared his throat and tried one more time with a smile before ending the song to thunderous applause honoring the country.
Bryan has been on his Kick the Dust Up tour with Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett, Dustin Lynch and Randy Houser since May. His latest single by the same name has since climbed to No. 2 on the Billboard Hot Country chart. It is the lead-off track from his upcoming album Kill the Lights, due out August 7, for which Bryan recently revealed the full track listing, including one duet with Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild.
Bryan was named one of Forbes’ Celebrity 100 this year, making him one of the top-earning celebrities — not to mention country artists — in the world.
