Luke Bryan prepares to sing national anthem at Superbowl LI

Local News

Luke Bryan has 17 #1 hit songs.

He’s sold over 27 million singles.

He also has numerous Entertainer of the Year awards.

But he says Sunday will be a moment he never forgets.

“It’ll be certainly a highlight of my career, in my entertainment life, to be able to walk out there, and hopefully perform the anthem in the way that I’ve always dreamed I would do it.”

Anyone who’s listened to his songs knows Luke likes “huntin’ and fishin’”. But it turns out he knows a thing or two about football, especially the Atlanta Falcons.

He said, “I grew up in Georgia, so I’ve definitely got to pull for my Falcons, my dirty birds.”

Most of Luke’s songs last three to four minutes. The big question this week is, “How long will the National Anthem be?”

The over/under prop bet for Luke’s rendition is 2 minutes 15 seconds.

Luke tells us everyone wants to know some inside information. He told this story. “I had a buddy of mine call me the other day and he’s like, ‘Hey man, you going long? Just say long. That’s all I need to know.’, and I’m like, ‘It’s 8:30 in the morning, I don’t know what,’ and he goes, ‘On the anthem. Are you going long?’, and I’m like, ‘Oh, c’mon!’”
