Luke Bryan Performs Mash Up Of Pop’s Biggest Hits


For the Third Annual Crash My Playa country music festival, Luke Bryan and his friends definitely pulled out all the stops. With performances from Little Big Town, Blake Shelton, Dustin Lynch, Old Dominion, Randy Houser and more, the four day festival in Riviera Maya, Mexico looked like a weekend country fans would never forget.

Shelton surprised the sold-out crowd by bringing girlfriend Gwen Stefani out on stage to sing her 2001 hit “Hella Good”, and later, brought out Bryan and Little Big Town for a rowdy version of “Escape (The Pina Colada Song)”.

During some down time, Bryan admitted to CMT’s Cody Alan that he suffered yet another injury, this time in his leg, while learning how to kite surf at his resort. Fans might remember that he just recently broke his clavicle in a biking accident, which required him to have surgery.

“When you start learning how to kite surf, it’s like God reaches down and jerks you out of the water,” Bryan told CMT’s Cody Alan. “Out in front of my place, there’s some coral. So obviously, when I’m out there learning, we put some shoes on so we wouldn’t step on the coral. But I feel right on … and pretty much [reinjured myself]… That’s just how I roll. I’m just clumsy enough to stay injured without being hurt too bad.”

Before he hurt himself, Bryan headlined two of the festival’s four nights, one of which included a 13-minute medley of pop music’s biggest hits. Bryan sang six wildly popular songs from 1969, 1982, 2014, 2015, and 2016, and the crowd was loving it. They sang along to every single song, and Bryan incorporated some of his signature dance moves, which usually leads to a stage fall, but he got lucky this time!

He started the medley off with a rousing and energetic version of Flo Rida’s mega-hit “My House”, followed by The Chainsmoker’s No. 1 song “Closer”. He seamlessly transitioned into Bruno Mars’ catchy tune “Uptown Funk” and then went old-school with Prince’s “1999”. He channelled his CMT Crossroads duet partner Jason Derulo while singing “Want To Want Me”.

He got the crowd really involved by having them sing along to his closing number, the ever-so-catchy Neil Diamond classic “Sweet Caroline”.

Watch the full medley below, and feel free to sing along. It’s impossible not to!
