Fans getting the chance to interact with their favorite artists is, for the most part, a dream come true that is fulfilled more often than we realize. For some, it’s a simple addition to the incredible memory of seeing a band perform live, and for others, it’s a life-changing experience that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. For one young girl at a Luke Bryan concert, the latter was about to happen.
In Holmdel, New Jersey, in August 2013, Luke Bryan was performing at the PNC Arts Centre to an energized and loving crowd. One fan, however, was dedicated to showing Bryan just how devoted she was as she crowd-surfed toward the front of the stage. To Bryan’s surprise, this young fan knew every word of his song, and to say it was an adorable interaction would be an understatement. Watch the heartwarming video below:
Not only was this a special moment for Bryan, his fans, and the rest of the crowd that night, but it was also a treat for YouTube as it was an immediate viral hit. Since uploading, the video has amassed 8 million views, and a plethora of heartfelt comments on how special the interaction is. One YouTube viewer said: “This has got to be the greatest thing I have seen in a long time… Luke knowing this little girl knowing the words to his song made his night, he will always remember this too.”
Luke Bryan is best known for his singer-songwriter career as an American country musician and has released a plethora of records over the years. He became famous after the release of his third studio album, Tailgates & Tanlines, in 2011; his two previous records didn’t quite hit the mark from music critics or the public. Since then, Bryan has released 30 number-one hits and has earned the “Entertainer Of The Year” award from both the Academy Of Country Music Awards and the Country Music Associate.
Despite all these successes, it’s almost certain that this particular interaction with a loving fan who knew every word of his song at a young age and sang and danced along with him onstage will stay with him forever.
