Luke Bryan with Cole Swindell at Budweiser Stage

As fall quickly approaches, the nights get cooler down by the lake at the Budweiser Stage but with tonight’s show, legendary Country artist, Luke Bryan in town, weather didn’t stand a chance.

The “Sunset Repeat”  tour named after lyrics off the track “Sunrise, Sunburn Sunset” on his 2017 release,  ‘What Makes You County’  was fitting for this day as hot afternoons and colder nights have you looking forward to the next sunrise but with this tour lineup , heat will not be an issue tonight. Supporting Luke on this tour are Country stars themselves and long time buddies Jon Langston, Cole Swindell and DJ Rock.

Langston got the near packed Bud Stage full of cowboy boots, flannel shirts and cowboy hats up and dancing early with DJ Rock spinning sets between each artist to keep the crowd partying in their seats.

Platinum Selling artist, Cole Swindell had a packed house singing and dancing along to every song during his set and had the loud, dancing crowd ready for the man, Luke Bryan.

With a 12 ft microphone sitting centre stage, I was not sure what to expect. Stage goes black and a motor starts to rev, Bryan hits the stage on a ATV and starts the night off with the title track off his 2017 release, “What Makes You Country” while standing on it, the bar is set, the nights just cranked up and we’re in for a damn good country show! His 22 song night filled with hit after hit, and covering Bon Jovi’s ” Living On A Prayer” which had every single fan in attendance singing at the top of their lungs, this night was perfect. The night never slowed down and finishing it off with a classic tune, made this night one everyone who was there will remember for years to come.
