Luke Bryan admitted to being a little nervous and a lot excited when he took over Verizon’s Twitter page for an hour-long livestream to help raise awareness of the plight of small businesses during this time of global pandemic.
Coming from his home, south of Nashville, Luke move from guitar to piano to perform acoustic versions of some of his biggest hits, including “Sunrise, Sunburn, Sunset, Repeat,” “Strip It Down,” “Most People Are Good,” “Play it Again” and his new single, “One Margarita.” Between some of the songs, he shared personal stories of small businesses that he patronizes. Among them were his favorite sushi restaurant, Sunset Sushi, and Fly South, where he picks up gear for fly-fishing excursions.
Throughout the performance, Luke also offered up ways that consumers could help small businesses during the mandated quarantine period. In addition to ordering carry-out, buying gift cards and shopping online, he also suggested using verizon.com/PayItForwardLive to help keep your favorite local, independent businesses alive during these challenging economic times.
Luke can speak with some authority on behalf of small business owners since he is the co- owner of a boutique cigar shop on Florida’s scenic 30A.
Like the rest of the country music community, the kick-off of Luke’s Proud to Be Right Here Tour, were postponed due to the coronavirus. In addition, he has delayed the release of his upcoming album, Born Here, Live Here, Die Here to August 7. The tour has also been rescheduled to start July 10.
