Luke Bryan has plans for a "low key" Christmas this year, but he's going to make up for it with a "crazy" New Year's Eve.

The singer has had an enormously busy year with the release of his latest album, Kill the Lights, and a tour that played the biggest venues in North America. He tells Nashville's Tennessean newspaper that he plans to take it easy this Christmas by “trying to hang out around the house, do a little shopping, a little Santa Clausing.”

The superstar and his wife, Caroline, are facing a lot of shopping this year for their sons Bo and Tate, as well as their teenage nephew, Tilden, who came to live with them after the deaths of both of his parents.

“[My sons] want the little hoverboard things, bow and arrows, Legos, your typical stuff,” Bryan says. “Til got [a hoverboard] and now they all want one. And they broke Til’s so I think we’re going to have to get three of them.”

The singer's downtime won't last long. After Christmas, he heads to New York City for Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest, joining Carrie Underwood, who will give a headlining performance. Bryan is slated to perform a medley of his hits on the show, which also features appearances by Demi Lovato, Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth. The annual year-end extravaganza broadcasts live from Times Square in New York City every New Year’s Eve.

“I’ve never been up there for New Year's,” Bryan said. “It will be a bucket list kind of thing. It's crazy. It’s going to be fun.”
