Luke Bryan brought his team of sexy female dancers back to Nashville for another live performance of ‘Country Girl (Shake It for Me),’ a Top 5 hit from his new album ‘Tailgates and Tanlines.’ The 2011 CMA Awards performance had the audience at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on their feet.

Bryan performed the same song during the CMT Music Awards last summer. The two performances were similar, with Bryan adding a neat baseball cap trick during this version. As he walked out, one of his dancers kicked the cap up and he caught it before putting it on his head to ‘shake it’ for the crowd.

The performance was a remarkable change of pace after Taylor Swift’s quiet ballad. Bryan wore a black T-shirt with rhinestoned black jeans and black cowboy boots that sparkled under the CMA stage lights. He was the fourth of five New Artist of the Year nominees to perform, with Chris Young, Eric Church and Thompson Square performing in succession earlier in the night.
