Luke Bryan Takes Fans ‘Around Town’
Luke Bryan is stepping off the concert stage and in front of a camera for his second online co-hosting gig. Originally tapped to cover the CMA Awards for ABC.com's 'Live CMA Awards Red Carpet' in 2007, the country singer was invited back to cover the 2009 CMA Music Festival in Nashville. During the festival, he and TV personality Ashley Eicher filmed a series of webisodes that give fans an insider's look at country music's biggest annual event.
"It's such a great experience for me to be a part of this and be able to let the fans see all the things that go on during CMA Music Festival week," Luke says. "Country artists truly appreciate every single person who supports what we do, and this is a way that I can help give back to both those who attend and those who were not able to be here."
The series, entitled 'Around Town with Luke Bryan,' will feature interviews with several fellow country stars, including Trace Adkins, Martina McBride and Julianne Hough. Cameras will also follow Luke around various CMA Music Fest activities. You can watch the first episode of the five-part series here. Subsequent webisodes will air throughout next week, leading up to the big ABC television special, 'CMA Music Festival: Country's Night To Rock,' which airs Aug. 31.
