Luke Bryan wrapped up his Dirt Road Diaries Tour over the weekend. The tour, along with his fifth annual eight-city “Farm Tour,” sold out all dates in advance and earned him two nominations at the upcoming Billboard Touring Awards in the Breakthrough and Eventful Fan Choice categories. The singer has performed for more than 1.3 million fans this year.
His shows earned rave reviews from critics across the country.
“Bryan had this electric, youthful crowd in his palm before he started singing,” Grand Rapids Press Gazette wrote. “The show, which sold out in a flash, was a testament to one of country’s brightest lights, a performer who’s vocal and musical chops are aligned with his star quality showmanship.”
“With an easy, genuine smile, charisma to spare and he understands how to use every tool in his arsenal to keep the audience engaged,” The Tennessean wrote after Luke’s two-night stand in Nashville. “Charisma is definitely a word you could use to describe his bond with an audience,” said Billboard.com.
Luke, who is nominated for Entertainer of the Year at the CMA Awards, has wrapped touring for 2013 but will kick off the new year by launching his “That’s My Kind of Night Tour” on January 16 in Columbus, Ohio.
