Luke Bryan is headed to the small screen this week. He’ll be in New York City for appearances on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday (September 5th) and ABC’s Good Morning America on Thursday (September 6th), where he’ll perform his latest single, “Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye.”
The Georgia native is thrilled to make his first performance on Fallon, who is a huge fan of music. “I think Jimmy Fallon embodies, you know, my generation and the youth generation of night-time, late-night TV,” says Luke. “And he’s certainly crazy as it gets…it’s a big honor to be a part of his show.
He makes his second appearance on GMA, having performed as part of the Summer Concert Series a couple of months ago. Forming a bond with host Robin Roberts during his first time on the show, Luke sends prayers and well-wishes as she undergoes a bone marrow transplant for MDS, a rare blood disorder which developed after she underwent treatment for breast cancer. (Roberts’ mother, Lucimarian Roberts, died late Thursday and she was with her mother in Mississippi, leaving a day earlier than she had planned.)
“She’s such a beautiful spirit and soul,” says Luke. “I know since I’ve been on the show, she is taking a leave of absence for her health and very close to getting her bone marrow transplant, which on behalf of me and my family and everybody in my organization, we will be praying for her and praying for a speedy, strong recovery. I tell you what, she’s just such an amazing woman, and no doubt in my mind will pull through and come back stronger than ever.”
You can also catch Luke on TV in a couple of weeks. He will be co-hosting ABC’s CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock with The Band Perry’s Kimberly Perry on Monday, September 17th at 8pm ET.
