Luke Bryan Wins 2015 ACM Award for Entertainer of the Year
"What an amazing night of music, to be here in Texas with so many heroes that got awarded tonight," Bryan said. "So many wonderful things. Thank you, Capitol UMG. Thank you to my wife. I love you baby. My kids at home, my fans, country radio."
Bryan reached out to his fans to help him capture the coveted trophy.
“To the best fans on Earth ... You make it fun! You’re the reason I’m here. You motivate me!” Bryan said in a special video. “Work hard. Play hard. And never give up! We’ve made this moment together.”
Bryan's career is certainly soaring. All six singles from his 2013 Crash My Party album went to the top of the charts, including his recent "I See You." He also launched his successful That's My Kind of Night Tour, playing before 1.7 million fans in 2014, including four sold-out stadium shows, as well as setting the all-time country record for tickets sold at Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field and Solder Field in Chicago, Ill.
The Georgia native also recently wrapped up his final Spring Break shows in Panama City, Fla., along with his last Spring Break-themed album, Spring Break ... Checkin' Out, which debuted at No. 1.
Bryan, who co-hosted the entire ACM Awards broadcast with Blake Shelton, also won an ACM Award for Vocal Event of the Year, for "This Is How We Roll" with Florida Georgia Line. He last won the ACM Award for Entertainer of the Year in 2013.
