Luke Bryan’s Five Years With CMT Artists of the Year

He Returns When 2016 Special Premieres Thursday

Editor’s note: Luke Bryan will join Florida Georgia Line, Thomas RhettChris Stapleton and Carrie Underwood as honorees at the 2016 CMT Artists of the Year special premiering Thursday (Oct. 20) at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

“Hey, I remember not being one, so I’m enjoying being one for five years,” Luke Bryan says of his CMT Artists of the Year track record.

“The first year, you’re like, ’Oh, I can’t believe it!” Bryan tells CMT Hot 20 Countdown’s Katie Cook. “And now, I’m in the point of my career where I’m like, ’Please let me in there!”(laughs) Please keep me working!’ I gotta keep fooling people.”

The Georgia native has had another incredible year, including his Kill the Lights Tour that included a stop at Chicago’s Wrigley Field and two shows at Gillette Stadium near Boston. He also headlined the first-ever concert at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. He’ll also be headlining Saturday (Oct. 22) at AT&T Stadium near Dallas and Oct. 29 at Detroit’s Ford Field.
