While plenty of fans were beyond pumped after hearing the news, some were still wishing Luke was performing more than just the National Anthem. “FINALLY!!!! Wish it was halftime but I’ll take it!!!!” one super enthusiastic fan wrote. Come on, guys we get Lady Gaga for the halftime show this year! Maybe Luke will return for the halftime show another year? One fan joked that watching Luke Bryan would actually entice her to watch football and tweeted, “OMG YAY. The only reason I’ll be watching football willingly.” LOL.
