Luke Bryan recently became the first country artist to headline a concert at Dodgers Stadium on Saturday (July 28). The sold-out show was the eighth stadium show out of 13 planned as part of his What Makes You Country Tour XL Stadium Sized.

Backstage before the concert, BMI presented Bryan with eight ‘Million Air Awards’ for his radio airplay. The Million-Air Award is given to songwriters, composers, and publishers whose songs accumulate over one million U.S. broadcast performances. Bryan was awarded for “Move” (1 million), “Fast” (1 million), “Huntin’, Fishin’, and Lovin’ Every Day” (1 million), “I See You” (2 Million), “Someone Else Calling You Baby” (2 million), “Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye” (2 million) “This Is How We Roll” (2 million) and “Good Directions” (4 million- Luke wrote this No. 1 hit for Billy Currington). The combined airplay total on these singles is 15 million.

The What Makes You Country Tour plays in Arkansas and Nebraska this week then Luke heads to Denver to perform at Sports Authority Field at Mile High on Saturday, Aug. 4. Luke first headlined this stadium in 2015 and in 2016 he played back to back stadium dates in Denver’s Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.
