Happy birthday Luke Bryan! Country music’s best booty-shaker is turning 39 today, July 17. He’s had an amazing year, and we want to help him celebrate in style!
Luke Bryan is 39! The country cutie had a year full of industry accolades — seriously, he was featured at so many award shows! — and strengthened his career with a new tour. Luke has had an incredible year, and we bet 39 is going to be even better than his last!
It’s not hard to see why Luke is such an awards show favorite. He’s charismatic, highly talented — and he’s the best booty shaker in the industry! He ended 2014 right, with two big wind. At the CMAs in November 2014, Luke took home the award for Entertainer of the Year. Not only a huge honor, but Luke’s first ever CMA win! Hey, if you’re gonna win, win big!
Luke continued his streak when he hit the American Country Countdown Awards in December 2014 and won Male Vocalist of the Year. He brought the room (and us) to tears with his heartfelt acceptance speech; his win came just two weeks after his brother-in-law passed away. He was the husband to Luke’s late sister Kelly, who passed away in 2007. He and wife Caroline made the decision to take in 13 year-old nephew Til in February 2015. Incredible!
Starting 2015 on that more positive note, Luke announced the tour dates for his Kick Up Dust tour, which began May 8 in Grand Forks, North Dakota. the tour, hitting cities like Chicago, Philadelphia and Detroit, as well as cities overseas, also features Randy Houser,Dustin Lynch, Florida Georgia Line and Thomas Rhett!
The rest of Luke’s year? More awards shows, of course. Luke hosted the ACM awards for the second time with Blake Shelton and blew the lid off the house with a performance of “I See You.” He also hit the CMTs and performed yet again — and got a little cozy with Justin Bieber, too!
HollywoodLifers, please help us wish Luke a very happy birthday!
