Luke Bryan, like anyone in the entertainment industry, has been forced to face his fair share of criticism. In an interview on October 7, Bryan dismissed those who criticize his music as "inauthentic," saying he simply writes about his life experiences.
During a new interview with Brooks & Dunn's Kix Brooks for Kix TV, Bryan once again took a stand against his critics. Only this time he spoke about the critics who go to his concerts and later write articles tearing his performances apart.
The fact that people critique his shows doesn't seem to upset Bryan. Rather, he gets upset over their focus on tiny details. "They watch a two-hour show and they bring up four times that I was pitchy," Bryan said, generating a laugh from Brooks, who surely knows what he's talking about.
Bryan said that he doesn't understand why the critics would focus on such small things. He made the point that no artist is going to be able to come out on stage and put on a perfect concert.
For Bryan, what matters more than what the critics say is whether or not his fans are enjoying themselves. He said that he prefers to sacrifice perfection for fun, so that way his fans have a great time:
"If I have to go up there and I have to think about delivering the live vocal performance of the year every night, then I am not going to be having fun up there. When you start honing in on being so perfect up there you sacrifice the enjoyment of it."
It seems that Bryan is doing just fine as an entertainer, despite his critics. He won the CMA Entertainer of the Year Award in 2014 and 2015, and is up for it yet again this year.
