Luke Bryan Entertains Over 75,000 Fans at Houston Rodeo

Nashville – March 18, 2013 - ACM Entertainer of the Year nominee and co-host Luke Bryan headlined the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™ this past Saturday night before a crowd of 75,242 fans. This was Luke’s second performance at the Rodeo, his first as a headliner, and the largest crowd of his career. At the close of this Saturday’s show, the rodeo also reported this was the second-largest crowd in their history.

"I may have said it last year,” Luke said from the rodeo stage, “but I grew up dreaming of playing the Houston Rodeo. To sell this place out on a Saturday night is a country boy’s dream!”
