Luke Bryan chairs hunting and fishing day

Wednesday, January 21, 2009 – Luke Bryan will be the honorary chairman of National Hunting and Fishing Day, slated for Sept. 26.

Congress established National Hunting and Fishing Day to recognize hunters and anglers for their leadership in fish and wildlife conservation. Since launching in 1972, the day has been formally proclaimed by every U.S. President and countless governors and mayors. Other honorary chairs have included actors, entertainers and sports stars like Wade Boggs, Jay Novacek, Robert Urich, Ward Burton, Tom Seaver, George Brett, John Havlicek, Arnold Palmer and Terry Bradshaw .

"I feel very proud to be a part of this," said Bryan. "I'm looking forward to the coming year. I hope to help grow awareness of what hunters and anglers do for conservation, and just promote hunting and fishing overall. It's so important for young people to get involved in the outdoors. I couldn't imagine my life and career without the time that I've spent hunting and fishing."

A native of Leesburg, Ga., Bryan grew up farming, hunting and fishing with his family. "I don't remember learning how to hunt and fish - just like I don't remember learning how to talk. It was just a natural thing in our family. Part of our lifestyle. I had a dad who wanted to take me hunting and fishing, and we went two or three times a week."

"We're thrilled that Luke will be the face and voice of the sporting community this year. With his help, National Hunting and Fishing Day will again serve as a great reminder to all Americans that conservation succeeds only because of hunters, anglers and shooters," said Denise Wagner of Wonders of Wildlife museum.

The museum, in Springfield, Mo., is the official home of National Hunting and Fishing Day. The museum coordinates public education and awareness campaigns to promote traditional outdoor sports.

CD review - Born Here Live Here Die Here deluxe If there's one thing Luke Bryan knows how to do, it's to stay in his lane. And why not? It often leads to great chart position. The Deluxe edition of his seventh album "Born Here, Live Here, Die Here" was born out of the pandemic tour stoppage. It includes six new songs and increases the run time to 54 minutes. The original 10 tracks are mostly in the vein of the pop laced chart toppers "One Margarita" and "Knockin' Boots." With writing ...
CD review - Born Here, Live Here, Die Here After taking in Luke Bryan's "Born Here Live Here Die Here," the listener will never guess this full length was released during a pandemic. Maybe that's a good thing. After all, we might need a diversion from the international health crisis now and then. The release opens with "Knockin' Boots," which is how modern cowboys describe sexual intercourse. A few songs later, Bryan gives us the drinking song (and single) "One Margarita." In between, "What ...
CD review - What Makes You Country Luke Bryan aims to please often, and that rarely goes unpunished. The Georgia native has a strong voice, some songwriting skill and even legitimate farming cred. But Bryan still gets pegged as the face of corporate country - that pandering beast packaging artists for mass consumption. The label can be unfair, but not wholly undeserved - Bryan has a long track record, for instance, of records about chasing girls and Bud Lights. In truth, he married his college sweetheart and they share a quiet, ...
