Country music fans have one big reason to watch the Super Bowl in 2017: Luke Bryan has been chosen to sing the National Anthem during the big game.

The NFL and Fox revealed Bryan as this year’s National Anthem performer. It will be his first time performing during the Super Bowl festivities. Bryant says the anthem is challenging and nerve-wracking but he moved to Nashville to follow his dreams, and singing the National Anthem on that stage doesn’t get any bigger.

Jon Pardi explains why he released both ‘Dirt on My Boots’ and ‘Head Over Boots’ as singles. It’s not that he cares about boot songs; he cares about back to back hit singles. He says he’s on one of the biggest record labels and if they say release two boot songs, he’s o.k. with it.

LoCash earned their first No. 1 hit in 2016, with ‘I Know Somebody’, the second single from their ‘The Fighters’ album and one of only three songs they didn’t have a hand in writing. For duo members Chris and Preston, their success is sweeter because it follows so many years of hard work. Lucas says: It’s been 11 years of doing this. We couldn’t be more blessed and thankful right now.
