That’s how long it took for 2 shows with Shure Artists’ Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line to sell out in Nashville (that’s approximately 18,500 seats each night, BTW).
Luke released his first album 6 years ago, now on his fourth. Florida Georgia Line released their first full studio album just last year!
Both of these artists are enjoying an amazingly strong rise in popularity. I attended the Friday night show and got to hang with FOH Engineer Pete Healey. Pete was proud to point out that there was more PA speakers hung for his show than the Iron Maiden show a while back! Pete also informed me that Luke was the first artist he had been with that went all the way from a van and trailer tour to an arena sized tour. A major accomplishment to be proud of.
It’s great to look back at this below and then to watch where he is at today at the ACM Entertainer of the year! (I’m planning to get a new interview soon.)
The show in Nashville was non-stop adrenaline. Pete said the added PA helps him get over the crowd noise.
Tyler and Brian of Florida Georgia Line have been doing a few headlining shows. Exciting news for a group that broke big just last year. (I’m also about to go into edit mode on the interview I got with them.)
Here’s a few shots from the show – Enjoy and have a great weekend!
