Luke Bryan is heading to Super Bowl LI! The country superstar will perform the national anthem prior to kickoff at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas on Sunday, February 5.
Bryan’s performance will be televised on FOX, and it will serve as his first time appearing at the Super Bowl. Fellow country artists that have performed the anthem for this most-watched event include Carrie Underwood, Faith Hill, and Garth Brooks.
When the opportunity came up for Luke to perform, it was a pretty easy decision for him. The singer/songwriter told PEOPLE, “I said, ‘Hell yes, I’ll do it!’ ”
“I never served in the military — that’s something I wish I had had the opportunity to do” Bryan continues to share with PEOPLE, “but I feel like this is my way of honoring my country. It’s a little chance to serve.”
Be sure to tune-in and watch Luke Bryan perform on Sunday, February 5, live from Houston before the New England Patriots take on the Atlanta Falcons for Super Bowl LI.
