Luke admits the national anthem is very “challenging” and “nerve-wracking” to perform, but he’s up for the challenge. “I moved to Nashville to follow my dreams and singing the national anthem on that stage doesn’t get any bigger.”


Singing then anthem is also a way for Luke to put his American pride on full display.

He adds, “I never served in the military — that’s something I wish I had had the opportunity to do, but I feel like this is my way of honoring my country. It’s a little chance to serve.”

Super Bowl 51 will air Sunday, Feb. 5, on FOX. Luke joins an illustrious list of country singers who have performed at the Super Bown in years past, including Garth Brooks, Carrie Underwood, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, The Judds, Faith Hill, Dixie Chicks and Charlie Pride.
