Luke Bryan is a bonafide country music superstar, and he's bringing his catalog of hits to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo 2019. But which songs will he perform? Bryan has plenty of great tracks, so there are all kinds of possibilities for his set. Check out the five songs we hope Luke Bryan plays in Houston, before getting your tickets to see Luke Bryan at Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo here on AXS.
"Huntin', Fishin' and Lovin' Every Day"
This is Luke Bryan's latest single, so it's a near certainty that it will be on the playlist. But it's also a great fit for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, because it's about everything that is associated with the country lifestyle. There should be at least one song that's somewhat connected to the event, and this song isn't just relevant; it's so appropriate that it could be the theme of the event. Play the video above to hear it for yourself.
"That's My Kind of Night"
Bryan is well known for his party songs, and there's no better party song in the entire country genre than "That's My Kind of Night." It effortlessly mixes country and pop-rock, and it has an incredibly catchy chorus. Not only that, but it's one of Bryan's most popular songs, so how could he leave it off? This song made him the first male artist to top both of Billboard's country charts simultaneously. His Houston set would be incomplete without it.
"Kick The Dust Up"
This song comes from Kill The Lights, which is one of Bryan's best albums. That album needs to be represented here in general, because so many great tracks came out of it. There isn't a better one than "Kick The Dust Up," which was his tenth number one single in a row. And it also fits in well with the vibe of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo; the whole concept of the song is leaving behind the city's crowded bars and stuffy social scene to go out and party with one's friends instead.
"Play It Again"
Bryan's setlist can't all be party songs; there should be a slow number or two in there. "Play It Again" is a charming slow jam from his Crash My Party album. It's awesome because it's just a very simple song about the narrator meeting a special woman and the two of them waiting to hear her favorite song come up on the radio. Bryan's vocals really shine on the track, and it would be guaranteed to melt more than a few hearts in the audience, too. This would be a perfect song to end the evening on.
"Country Girl (Shake It For Me)"
Though Luke Bryan comes up with new hit songs seemingly every day, it's important not to overlook the early tracks that made him a star. One such song was "Country Girl (Shake It For Me)," which turns eight years old in March. It's a combination of country sound and hip-hop vibe, so it will remind fans how versatile Bryan's sound really is. It's also a song that sounds even better live than it does on the album, so why not throw it onto a live setlist? Plus, don't forget that it went triple Platinum.
