Luke Bryan Shares His Favorite Things at 2016 CMT Music Awards

"Huntin', Fishin' and Lovin' Every Day" Ends With a Musical Tour de Force

It started with Luke Bryan strumming an acoustic guitar and singing about what constitutes the concept of a good life for him.

By the end of “Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day,” his Wednesday night (June 8) performance on the 2016 CMT Music Awards turned into a musical tour de force with electric banjo and screaming guitars.

The TV production at the awards show created the illusion that Bryan and his band were set up near a waterfront. In reality, it was the inside of the Bridgestone Arena on Lower Broadway, and the nearest waterway was a few blocks away where the Cumberland River flows through downtown Nashville.
