The Set List
“If I’m up there comfortable, smiling, not taking myself too seriously, then [the fans] are going to do that too. And I want them to be able to escape and just get caught up in the moment and have a good time – get their money’s worth.”

On performing live:
“I look forward to the moment, walking out on stage, seeing the energy, seeing people having the time of their life. You know, me getting out there and giving it my all every night – I love that.”
On making his new album:
“My mindset when I went in to start making “Crash My Party” was pretty much the same mindset I have every time I go into the studio. We always work hard, me and my producer, to up the ante sonically, honing in my style and what my fans have come to expect.”
On collaborating with other songwriters:
“I’m so proud that a lot of Nashville songwriters showed up and were gunning to get on this album – and a lot of their songs beat the songs I wrote so I’m going to have to step up my game for the next album.”
On his fan club, The Nuthouse:
“Well the Nuthouse is my fan club, and my dad– we’re in the peanut business down in South Georgia– we just kind of wanted to create a fan club that touched on the relationship with peanuts so we felt like the Nuthouse was a fitting name. And the Nuthouse is, well… we’ve got some crazy people in there.”
On the fans:
“It’s been fun through the years developing relationships with fans and seeing the fan club grow and grow each year and we’ve really been able to really do some positive things... We try to let the fan club come back and have meet and greets as much as we can. It’s all a part of being good to the fans, and I’ve got some awesome fan club members.”

Crash My Party:

That’s My Kind of Night:
The second single off of “Crash My Party,” this party anthem gets the crowd moving with a head-bobbing beat. “It’s just a big ol’ up-tempo summertime in-your-face song,” says Luke.
A track off his 2012 EP “Spring Break 4… Suntan City,” this song charms the crowd with feel-good lyrics like “Now I'm sittin' pretty in Suntan City/ Got the best view in the world/ Spendin' my days catchin' these rays/ Watchin’ coconut covered girls.”
Drunk on You:
The third single off his third album “Tailgates & Tanlines,” this Double-Platinum selling song tells a tale of summer love with lyrics like “Girl, you make my speakers go boom boom/ Dancin' on the tailgate in a full moon/ That kinda thing makes a man go mmm hmm.”
I Don’t Want This Night to End:
“Girl I know I don’t know you/ But your pretty little eyes so blue/ Are pulling me in/ Like the moon on your skin” croons the country star as the crowd sings along to this heartfelt hit single.
