Luke Bryan Hits Fan During Nashville Show


Luke Bryan may have surprised a lot of his fans when the usual “nice guy” hit a guy during his show on Wednesday, November 30 in Nashville. The country singer was performing at Charlie Daniels’ 80th Birthday/Volunteer Jam when a fan made his way to right in front of the stage and started acting unruly and was flipping Bryan off. Bryan got so fed up with the rudeness of the guy and gave him a hit on his head with a mic.

The video clip shows Bryan leave the stage and take a swing, that looks like it landed, and then returned right back on stage without ever losing track of where he was in his song.

After the video footage spread through social media, Bryan’s rep explained the incident in an interview.

Bryan’s rep said, “A man in front row was making crude hand gestures toward Luke during his performance. It was insulting not only to him, but more importantly to the men, women and families sitting around him who were there to support and celebrate Charlie Daniels and the efforts of raising money for the military veterans – some of who were in the audience. The concert security personnel saw the man’s disruptive actions of the event and was escorted out.”

Bryan performed at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena as part of Daniel’s birthday celebration. Other performers included Kid Rock, Chris Stapleton, 3 Doors Down, Travis Tritt and Larry the Cable Guy.
