Luke Bryan Remembers 9/11 by Honoring His Country at New Jersey Show [Watch]
Luke Bryan stopped during his Kick the Dust Up tour stop in Camden, N.J., last Friday (Sept. 11) to remember the lives lost fourteen years ago — a day that all Americans solemnly recall.
The 39-year-old paused the partying and hip-shaking to perform a heartwarming and goosebump-inducing rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner." The crowd patriotically placed their hands across their hearts and joined Bryan in singing the National Anthem, and the result was emotional.
Of course, Bryan wasn't alone — many country stars shared thoughtful words on social media on Sept. 11, including Alan Jackson, Scotty McCreery, the Oak Ridge Boys and Terri Clark, encouraging followers to take a moment out of their day to honor the lives lost.
Bryan is currently on the road promoting his new album, Kill the Lights, on the Kick the Dust Up tour through the end of the month before he takes a not-so-relaxing break to embark on his seventh-annual Farm Tour. He's said recently that he wants to slow down and spend more time with his family, as to not get swept away in his fame.
"We’re all digging and fighting and working hard,” he states, also noting that he wants to spend more time with his parents. “And through all that, every now and then, you’ve got to just try to find a little time for yourself, too, to just kinda go out and reflect, too. So, it’s definitely a battle, but there ain’t no how-to book on all that."
