Luke Bryan is living a dream, or at least he says so. His star is rising high across the country, and he’s hanging on for dear life. According to Bryan, “All I ever wanted to be is a big ol’ country star and I cannot believe it’s happened. It’s the time of my life and I’m loving every day. It’s all a dream.”
Hopefully Luke will be wide awake on May 18 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. He’s just been added to the list of stars who will be performing at the upcoming 2014 Billboard Music Awards. It’s likely Bryan will play “Play It Again” again for the good people in attendance and for those watching the live event on broadcast television. He’ll be representing the countrified segment of the audience, smack in the middle of a widely varied lineup consisting of Imagine Dragons, OneRepublic, John Legend and Jason Derulo. Bryan has a vested interest in this year’s show. He’s been nominated for seven awards in six categories, including the all-genre Top Billboard 200 Album, Top Male Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, and the prestigious Milestone Award. He’ll probably be on stage more than once.
This isn’t the first time Bryan has been nominated for several awards. Since his 2007 debut release “I’ll Stay Me,” he’s racked up the awards, including scoring the Academy of Country Music’s Entertainer of the Year nod in 2013. He’s not really sure if he’s awake or dreaming, but if he’s dreaming, he doesn’t want to wake up. Life is. . . well, it’s too damned good.
Bryan’s in good company, as far as country music stars at the Billboard Music Awards. Other country artists who were nominated for various accolades include the ever-present Taylor Swift, Alan Jackson, Florida Georgia Line, Blake Shelton, Darius Rucker and Garth Brooks.
