Over thirty thousand fans showed up on Saturday night at Nashville’s Vanderbilt Stadium to watch Luke Bryan perform his first ever headlining stadium show. Sharing the stage with the reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year were a few of the superstar’s good friends: Dustin Lynch, Thomas Rhett, Randy Houser, and Florida Georgia Line.
While each of the artists performed the songs that have made them soar in country music, Dustin, Thomas, Randy, and Luke had a little surprise for the large crowd of excited fans. Introducing the surprise performance, Luke explained:
Everybody on this stage moved to this town to follow a dream and you guys made it possible.
The group then exploded into Maroon 5’s “Sugar,” complete with Randy Houser on bass — something he has only done a handful of times in his life. Luke qualified Randy’s guitar playing by saying:
That’s what happens when you tour with me. You might have to do things you don’t typically do.
