Luke Bryan Storms Nashville!!

Country Music has so many great singers and entertainers.  Luke Bryan is a force to be reckoned with!  He is currently opening for Jason Aldean and really knows how to get a crowd going.  I went to see the show on Friday, February 24 in Nashville at the Bridgestone Arena and met with Luke’s FOH engineer Pete Healy to catch soundcheck.

Pete has the band dialed in nicely. The drums sounded thunderous with a Beta 98AMP on the high tom and 2 SM27’s on the low toms.  On the guitar amp, Pete’s using the SM27/SM57 combination that cuts through and is in your face.  Sitting on top of it all is Luke’s Chrome plated SM58 wireless.

The crowd was ready for Luke and he gave them all that energy right back.  He didn’t stand still the entire show, working every inch of that stage for his hour long set.  He’s got several hits out and the crowd knew every word.

I can see Luke headlining later this year or early next year.  He connects well with his audience and he writes songs that speak to them. Keep up the great work Luke!
