Huntin', Fishin' or Lovin' Every Day? Luke Bryan is ready for you to pick a team

No Comments

By Music News Group

ABC/Image Group LA One week from today, Luke Bryan launches his Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day Tour at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.

While Luke’s fans have embraced all those passions mentioned in his #1 song, the four-time Entertainer of the Year is apparently ready for everyone to declare an allegiance. As he sets out on his new tour, he’s offering them a choice of t-shirts corresponding with each pastime.

The #TeamHuntin’ shirt is green with a pair of antlers, while #TeamFishin’ is blue with an angling logo. #TeamLovin’ is red with a heart. You can order the team shirts from Luke’s website. They’ll set you back $25 apiece or $65 for a set of all three.

Step aside, Carrie Underwood: Dierks Bentley just may be the Nashville Predators' #1 fan

BC/Todd WawrychukSince Carrie Underwood‘s husband, Mike Fisher, is a captain for the Nashville Predators, you’d think it would be hard to find another country star who’s as pumped about Music City’s progress in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Dierks Bentley, however, just might be able to give her a run for her money.

“Nashville is just on fire right now, and I think what’s so cool about the Predators is it’s a young team,” he says. “The energy in [Bridgestone Arena] is just youthful exuberance, excitement.”

“You know, we’re an expansion team,” he adds, “and it wasn’t that long ago when even the players were donating salary and money to buy tickets to keep the team here.”

Right now, the Preds are just coming off a Wednesday night victory over the St. Louis Blues in the second round of the playoffs.

“Every game they win, hockey just grows more and more exciting in this town,” Dierks says. “More people come check it out.”

“We’ve got the greatest location for an arena, right there downtown,” he says of the venue he himself recently headlined.

“It’s just so fun to be part of that energy and that moment for the Preds. So hopefully, they can keep it going on. It feels like they’ve really got a good thing going.”

The Music City team will work to hang onto their lead Friday night in Game 2 of the series in St. Louis. After that, they head back to Nashville for Game 3 on Sunday.

Unfortunately, Dierks will be playing Reno, Nevada with Jon Pardi and Cole Swindell on his What the Hell Tour, so he’ll likely have to miss that game.
