Tuesday night, country fans watched as Luke Bryan sang the National Anthem at the 2012 MLB All-Star Game on their TVs. Even though he clearly hit all of the notes, a lot of people are wondering if he was reading the lyrics from his hand. There are a couple of times the camera captured him glancing down. After the anthem, the “Drunk on You” singer took to Twitter to see what people thought and one guy stood out to Luke.
So what does this mean Tweet mean? “You have no idea.” When you watch the video of Luke, it doesn’t seem like he has lyrics written on his hand. Was he just trying to focus? Or maybe he was trying to time it out with the flyover? Regardless, Luke did an amazing job. I would rather him be prepared than mess up something that huge. I look at it this way…if the President of the United States can use a teleprompter to read the Pledge of Allegiance, then a performer can look at the words of the National Anthem if he really wants to.
Luke took to his Twitter this morning with an explanation…
Morning everyone. I really wanna explain the national anthem performance from last night. I had a few keys words written down to insure myself that I wouldn’t mess up. I just wanted to do my best. I promise it was from the heart. If I offended anyone with my approach I sincerely apologize. Anytime I sing the anthem it is an honor and my heart beats out of my chest. I did check my watch because I knew the stealth bomber would fly over 2 minutes in and I knew a started a little late. Being a part of the all star game was amazing and I look forward to the next time I can perform the anthem. Thanks y’all. Love ya
So back off all you haters! He did an amazing job!
