Luke Bryan joined the Chicago White Sox for training camp with longtime friend and baseman Adam LaRoche.
This is the first time I’ve ever been really involved in the drills and the flow of the practice,” Bryan said with a laugh. “So, it was fun getting in there and the coaches, it’s fun. The coaches kind of giving me grief on bad swings. Bo told me pretty much everything about my swing was awful. It was fun.”
“The fact that I can fly home to Nashville and hand the baseball to my boys and go, ‘Guys, this ball is signed by undoubtedly probably the best athlete that has ever walked the face of the Earth,’ — it’s amazing that I got that opportunity,” said Bryan, the CMA 2014 Entertainer of the Year. “And it was pretty incredible.”
However, I don’t think Luke will be trading in his night job for a baseball career.
“The guys had a great time with him out here,” manager Robin Ventura said. “He’s good as far as interacting and having fun so it’s always good when stuff like that mixes together and you have guys like that. It’s always fun, especially when a guy is good friends with somebody. It’s easy to do and he took infield. He’s going to be a little sore, I think.”
Luke Bryan is doing it again! The 2016 Luke Bryan’s Crash My Playa, an all-inclusive Caribbean concert vacation is scheduled to take place January 22-26, this year will offer the same ideal beachfront concert setting as the sold out inaugural 2015 event. The 2016 edition will feature four nights of concerts including two nights of headlining performances by Luke Bryan. Additional chart topping country artists and unique collaborations will be announced shortly.
All Luke Bryan’s Crash My Playa guests will enjoy the ultimate country music fan experience with unparalleled access to their favorite country music stars. Typically known for stadium-sized performances, Crash My Playa artists kick back in this more intimate, small-scale setting with meet and greets, pop up poolside sets and special on-stage collaborations.
From the moment they arrive in Mexico, guests will be treated to an all inclusive and high-caliber experience, including all local travel, amenities and accommodations, admission to each night’s exclusive beach performances, food and drink, 24-hour concierge, an official Luke Bryan’s Crash My Playa merchandise package and optional themed adventures and activities that explore the riches of the Riviera Maya. These offerings will include ATV rides and zip lines through the jungle, snorkeling and scuba diving, tours through the ancient Mayan ruins, day excursions to Tulum and Playa Del Carmen, and more.
“When anyone asks about the inaugural Crash My Playa, I say ‘It was like a dream come true.’ It was not just my dream, it was all of our collective dreams coming true – the people here at CID Presents, the artists, their teams, and most importantly, our guests, the fans,” explained Dan Berkowitz, founder and CEO, CID Entertainment. “We’re excited to build off the magic of Crash My Playa and work hard to make the second year even more special with exciting treats and surprises that will redefine the way you imagine this once-in-a-lifetime ultimate live music event.”
