Anyone who sees Luke Bryan in concert will see that it's obvious why the "Kick the Dust Up" singer is the 2014 CMA Entertainer of the Year.
During one of his concerts in Cincinnati, OH in August of 2014, Bryan took a break from performing his own songs to entertain the crowd with a country favorite, Alabama's "Mountain Music."
"Mountain Music" was written by Alabama's lead singer Randy Owen. The song was first released in 1982 as the lead single for the band's album of the same name. "Mountain Music" was Alabama's sixth #1 hit, and is one of their most recognizable songs to this day.
Bryan's rendition of the iconic song maintains the same high-energy feel of the original. He plays along on a black Yamaha piano as he sings, while people in the band play other traditional instruments like the acoustic guitar and the fiddle.
Bryan gets really into his performance, lifting himself up from the piano stool to do a body roll as he sings "then I'll roll on down the river." Sometimes he even stops playing the piano in order to clap along to the music with the crowd.
At one point about midway through the song, Bryan gets up from the piano and holds out a very high note, which earns him a lot of cheers from the people in the audience.
His performance finishes even stronger than it started. At one point Bryan bounces out of his seat, clearly into the music. But he almost gets a little too into it, as he knocks the microphone off of his stand. He quickly picks it back up and concludes the song by hitting a bunch of random keys on the piano.
The smile on Bryan's face and the way he throws his head back and laughs after the performance shows he had a great time. The crowd seems to have enjoyed his performance as well, erupting into thunderous applause at the song's conclusion.
"Mountain Music" is such a fun song in itself, so it's no wonder that a fun-loving guy like Bryan could deliver such an entertaining performance of it.
