Luke Bryan can shake many things, but he doesn’t seem to shake off his Super Bowl 51 performance.
In 2017, the country superstar sang the national anthem live at the big game, but now he says that the coveted performance is not all it should be. As he remembered during Sunday’s Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon in the lead, the set contained many moving parts.
“I register with the National Anthem in the Super Bowl and when I was called, you think:” Do you really want to get yourself through this mental torture? “, The football superfan host Jimmy Fallon told.” You have the national anthem good or not, in the first place. “
It turned out that practicing “The Star-Spangled Banner” took days of practice and, to strengthen his nerves even more, put his friends to work on how his performance would go.
“Man, I have friends from country music who call me like,” Hey man, are you wearing a hat or not? “” He recalled, noting that some would bet how long his performance would last. “I kind of like:” I don’t know! I sing for – leave me alone! “
And don’t even let him start on the fighter jets. While he joked: “I will never do that to myself”
But still, he pulled it off and delivered an amazing performance. And celebrated in true Luke Bryan fashion. “I go to the box after I act,” he said. “And I’m used to:” Let someone give me a vodka drink now so that I can get my life back on track. “
Today he is still shaking. “I mean, you have been in situations where you are so nervous, as if you are locking your face in,” said 43-year-old Fallon. “It feels like you have set rigor mortis.”
