Luke Bryan will open CMAs with Live Performance and Surprise Guests!

Luke Bryan definitely knows how to work the crowd and give fans what they want. On his most recent “What Makes You Country” tour, he performed for 1.5 million fans! And he’ll kick off the 52nd Annual CMA Awards with a special live performance of “What Makes You Country.” Luke has also invited some of country music’s rising superstars to perform with him.

Luke said, “When we began talking about this performance I thought this would be a perfect time to share the stage with a few deserving artists who may not otherwise have an opportunity to be a part of the show. This genre is full of talented performers doing what makes them country and this is the perfect song to let them step in the spotlight to be seen and heard by the millions tuning in.”

We can’t wait to see who he brings on stage!
