OFFSTAGE: Luke Bryan Gets Stitches

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

Luke Bryan has some serious stitches in his forehead and hasn’t said a single thing about how they came to be. It happened yesterday (Aug. 10), because that’s when he tweeted the picture , just saying, “more stitches” and just prior to that “Does anyone wanna see my latest screw up?”

I don’t think it was some kind of Tailgates & Tanlines release-week attention getter. Those stitches look real. So let’s come up with a few theories on how you get a deep cut right in the middle of your forehead, shall we?

Is he trying to promote his new album’s bonus track, “That Don’t Just Happen”? Did Kathie Lee Gifford and Hota Kotb try to take him down on Today yesterday? Was he hoping for a scar he can tell stories about when he’s an old man? However it happened, I just hope Bryan is careful out there.
