Luke Bryan can’t wait to get out on the road. But he’s got some work to do.
The country star is set to embark on his Proud to Be Right Here tour, starting May 29 at Mount Pleasant, MI, his first jaunt since COVID-19 shut down the live sector.
Those dates coincide with the release of a deluxe edition of Born Here Live Here Die Here, which originally debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 chart last year.
There’s a slight problem. Do you ever forget the lyrics to songs that you ought to know so, so well? Luke Bryan has that issue.
“I’ve always been a guy who loves to be on the road and love to be out there with the fans, and interacting,” he told Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday night’s edition of The Tonight Show. Bryant has done some live streaming concerts, though he’s “forgetting the words to my songs quite a bit.”
There’s a bit of rust to shake off. “I’m gonna have to sit in my music room and go back and listen to (those songs),” he explained. “I’m going to have to do a little extra prep, I’m a little out of practice with some of this stuff.”
Bryan also talked about his judging stint on American Idol, going gray and being confused for Blake Shelton.
