Luke Bryan joined Alabama on stage at GAC to perform Alabama's classic hit  song, "Love In The First Degree", promoting their album Alabama And Friends and blowing their audience away in the process.

"Love In The First Degree" was released in 1981 from Alabama's Feels So Right album. It rocketed to #1 in both the U.S. and Canada, successfully becoming a crossover hit when it peaked at #5 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart. This song uses the analogy of being guilty for a crime - that crime being love.

Bryan pays tribute to the legendary country singers very well, showing that his talent isn't just in the modern country genre, but that he can also rock the classics with ease. Though no one can measure up to Alabama when it comes to this country love ballad, Luke does exceptionally well. 

Lyrics

I once thought of love as a prison
A place I didn't want to be
So long ago I made a decision
To be footloose and fancy free
But you came and I was so tempted
To gamble on love just one time
I never thought I would get caught
It seemed like a perfect crime

Baby, you left me defenseless
I've only got one plea
Lock me away
Inside of your love and throw away the key
I'm guilty
Of love in the first degree

I thought it would be so simple
Like a thousand times before
I take what I wanted and just walk away
But I never made it to the door
Now babe, I'm not beggin' for mercy
Go ahead and throw the book at me
If lovin' you is a crime, I know that I'm
As guilty as a man can be

Baby, you left me defenseless
I've only got one plea
Lock me away
Inside of your love and throw away the key
I'm guilty
Of love in the first degree
Love in the first degree
Oh yeah
Oh yeah

Baby, you left me defenseless
I've only got one plea
Lock me away
Inside of your love and throw away the key
I'm guilty
Of love in the first degree
Love in the first degree
Oh yeah

Love in the first degree
Love in the first degree
Oh yeah
Love in the first degree
Love in the first degree
Love in the first degree
Love in the first degree
