Luke Bryan Lights Up A Sold-Out Dodger Stadium On His ‘What Makes You Country’ Tour

Luke Bryan kicked the dust up in Los Angeles over the weekend!

The country superstar literally brought the sparks to a sold-out Dodger Stadium on Saturday with an energetic performance of his classic hits and newer songs from his latest album, “What Makes You Country.”

The singer immediately got the audience’s attention by starting off the night with one of his old favorites, “Country Girl (Shake It For Me).” The crowd dutifully obeyed the lyrics, dancing and swaying to the catchy beat. Luke followed suit, gyrating his hips along to the music in his tight blue jeans. That signature move would become a theme throughout the entire night!

The good time continued with with more of Luke’s most popular hits including, “I Don’t Want This Night To End,” “Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye,” “Crash My Party” and “Drunk On You.” The “American Idol” judge also grabbed his guitar for the heartfelt “Most People Are Good,” as well as covers of Alabama’s “Mountain Music” and Billy Currington’s “Good Directions,” which was co-written by Luke.

As the first country artist to headline Dodger Stadium, Luke definitely gave the audience a party to remember with his captivating stage presence. After nearly two hours on stage, he didn’t show any signs of slowing as he closed out the show on the ultimate high note.

The entire arena was glued in and on their feet for the dance-friendly tracks, “Play It Again” and “Rain Is A Good Thing.” Luke returned for his encore wearing a Dodgers jersey—of course!—and concluded the evening with the up-tempo “Move” and “That’s My Kind Of Night,” two obvious choices considering the night’s party atmosphere!
