Tuesday night (October 22) was a night to remember for Luke Bryan! During his performance at the Grand Ole Opry, he was surprised with the Academy of Country Music's Album of the Decade award for Crash My Party.
Bryan was at the Grand Ole Opry for the Opry Goes Pink event benefitting the Susan G. Komen Foundation in support of breast cancer research. The "Knockin' Boots" was responsible for "flipping the switch" to turn the whole venue pink, which he followed with a live performance of a handful of his hit songs including, "Most People Are Good," "Huntin', Fishin' and Lovin' Every Day," "Play It Again," "Do I" and "Drink A Beer."
At the end of his performance, Bryan was handed a trophy for ACM Album of the Decade, recognizing an album that has impacted country music over the decade. He then invited his producers, Jeff and Jody Stevens to the stage to be honored with him.
"I haven't had the opportunity to thank the at an awards show, and I want everyone to know how hard these guys have worked," Bryan says.
"Crash My Party was such a life-changing album for us. We didn’t know it at the time, we were just loving making music for you guys. It blew my mind the love and support we had from the fans. It’s so fun getting to do this. Thank you to my producer Jeff and my record label and management for sharing this experience with me tonight!” Bryan adds.
Crash My Party was Bryan's fourth studio album, released in 2013. The record gave us fan-favorite hits like "That's My Kind Of Night," "Drink A Beer," "Play It Again," "Roller Coaster," "I See You," and the title track, "Crash My Party."
Bryan is out on the road this week wrapping up his "Sunset Repeat Tour" with shows in Fort Wayne, Indiana and Detroit, Michigan.
