It’s official. Luke Bryan will be singing the National Anthem at this year’s Super Bowl.

He confirmed this on Twitter on Sunday (January 22) by posting a video with the caption: “Excited to perform the National Anthem on @NFL’s biggest stage #SB51. See y’all in Houston.”

The 40-year-old country musician will be the first male singer of the anthem at the Super Bowl in 10 years. The last male singer was Billy Joel (who sang in 2007 and 1989).

Bryan will join Lady Gaga on the Super Bowl LI lineup.

It was previously announced that Gaga would be the 2017 halftime show performer; she will be performing without guests.

 

The Super Bowl will go down at NRG Stadium in Houston on Feb. 5.

“Is the anthem challenging? Yes. Is it nerve-wracking? Yes. But I moved to Nashville to follow my dreams and singing the National Anthem on that stage doesn’t get any bigger,” he told People.

Bryan added: “I never served in the military — that’s something I wish I had had the opportunity to do, but I feel like this is my way of honoring my country. It’s a little chance to serve.” Read more…
