Luke Bryan Gives Five Minutes of Thanks to Loyal Fans

I’ve got two words for Luke Bryan. “You’re welcome.” After he spends nearly five minutes thanking his very loyal fans for so many things that have happened to him so far in 2010, I can’t help but feel grateful for his gratitude, if that makes any sense. It’s just so nice of him to recap the year — the CMT award, the ACM award, the Teen Choice nomination, the extension of his Farm Tour, hitting the top spot on the charts. It’s not in a boastful way but in a way that lets the fans know it was all because of them. He even gives thanks to the guys who put girls on their shoulders, and to all the people who sing the words to his songs, like “Do I” and “Rain is a Good Thing,” among many others. “It makes life on the road so much more fun,” he says. “It keeps smiles on my face and all the guys on the road — the band, the crew, and the bus driver, too.”
