Monday, November 18, 2013
– When tickets for Luke Bryan's concert at New York City's Madison Square Garden sold-out in five minutes, Bryan decided to add a second show .
The second concert, to be held on Sept. 12, 2014, went on sale this past Saturday morning and also sold-out within minutes.
The 2014 tour, "That's My Kind of Night Tour," will launch on Jan. 16 in Columbus, Ohio and will feature Lee Brice and Cole Swindell on the first leg.
"I can't thank my fans enough for being so eager to see us play in New York City," said Bryan. "They have made my first time playing Madison Square Garden a two-time experience. I'm trying to let it all sink in but I cannot wait to get there and share my live show with them."
Bryan wrapped his sold-out 2013 tour, the "Dirt Road Diaries Tour," in late October but fans can see him perform on ABC's American Music Awards on Nov. 24, on the Tonight Show on Nov. 26, The Ellen Show on Nov. 27 as well as the CMA Country Christmas special on Dec. 2. On Dec. 3, he will be honored on the fourth annual CMT Artists of the Year special.

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 ...
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.
