Luke Bryan wrapped his seventh and final year of two-day Spring Break concerts at the Spinnaker Beach Club in Panama City Beach, Fla., last week. Local officials estimated over 200,000 fans gathered each day.
The spring break albums and concerts began in 2009 as a way to get new music out to Luke’s fans between studio releases. This year’s release, Spring Break…Checkin’ Out, is available now and contains five new songs all co-written by Bryan, plus all six songs from last year’s EP. All six previous Spring Break releases combined have over 1.1 million sales to date.
Today’s Jenna Bush was on hand to cover the final event with a story airing this coming Monday, March 16. CMT’s HOT 20 show was also on tap with Katie Cook. Fans can tune-in to watch the fun on CMT on March 21-22.
In the past two-weeks, Bryan played his first-ever shows in Europe, and on May 22 the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum will open a summer exhibit “Luke Bryan: Dirt Road Diary.” On May 8, Luke will kick-off his “Kick The Dust Up Tour.” He is the reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year and will co-host the 50th Academy of Country Music Awards with Blake Shelton for a third consecutive year on April 19, 2015.
