Wednesday, March 26, 2008
– Luke Bryan landed a co-sponsorship for his new single, "Country Man" - Longhorn Steakhouse and Jack Daniels. Bryan will make 24 appearances at Longhorn Steakhouses across the country to meet and sign autographs for the fans as part of the deal.
In June, the Georgia native will host his fan club party at a local Nashville Longhorn Steakhouse during the CMA Music Fest.
"I'm honored Longhorn Steakhouse and Jack Daniels have chosen to be partners with me," said Bryan. "I'd say this is the perfect partnership - great steaks, Tennessee whiskey and an old country boy like me."
Bryan's current single "Country Man" just recently went for adds at country radio. He released his Capitol debut last summer.
