Keep shakin’ it for us, Luke! The country star hit the 2015 CMT Music Awards stage for a performance his brand new single ‘Kick The Dust Up,’ and, as usual, it was pretty amazing.
Summer means new music from Luke Bryan! The 38-year-old got us all super excited for his upcoming album by performing its debut single, “Kick The Dust Up,” at the CMT Music Awards on June 10. And we loved it!
After seeing Luke perform “Rollercoaster” and “I See You” at SO many award shows throughout 2014, it’s like a breath of fresh air to finally have a new tune from the country hottie! “Kick Up The Dust” is quickly climbing up the Billboard charts, and Luke definitely reminded us why with this performance.
Looking casual (but still super sexy) in dark jeans and a black shirt (WHAT are those leather shoulder patches, though?!) Luke was all over the arena as he rocked out to the song. Can you say song of the summer?! Everyone in the audience was certainly feeling it — and so were we at home! Unfortunately, we didn’t get to see too much of Luke’s signature booty shakin’, but he’s still not too sore on the eyes, right?
Luke Byran: The Adorable Reason ‘Kick The Dust Up’ Is His New Single
Luke looked totally dapper when he arrived on the red carpet for the show — he was suited up in a blue blazer — and dished on the new song and how important it is to him. Especially so because his two adorable sons are the ones who helped him choose it!
“Just riding around with them and them being in the backseat and me playing all my songs that I might potentially record, they just always loved “Kick The Dust Up,” he explained. “It’s just all those guitars that are so hooky and it’s simple to sing. It’s not rocket science. They loved it, so that’s kind of why I cut it…because they liked it.” SO freakin’ cute!
Besides just the performance, Luke had a big night of nominations at the CMTs! His song “Play It Again” is up for Video Of The Year and Male Video Of The Year. Stay tuned to HollywoodLife.com for all updates!
Luke actually just released his final Spring Break EP in March, but his third studio album, Kill The Lights, is already coming on Aug. 7! To promote the new stuff, Luke will be SUPER busy as he continues his tour all summer long — it actually goes all the way through October!
