Some of the biggest names in country music performed at the Buckeye Country Superfest in Columbus, Ohio over the weekend.
Randy Houser, Thomas Rhett, Lady Antebellum, Florida Georgia Line, Dierks Bentley and Jason Aldean all performed, with Luke Bryan as the main headliner.
Bryan’s set was Sunday night (June 19) during Game 7 of the NBA Championship between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors.
He announced the 4th quarter score earlier in his set, and the game was a nail-biter until the very end.
The Cavaliers ended up winning by 4 points, ending a 52-year championship drought for the city of Cleveland. The last championship was won by the city’s NFL team, the Browns, in 1964.
Bryan knew there were some die-hard basketball fans and proud Ohioans in his audience, so when he found out the Cavaliers pulled off this historical win, he completely stopped singing to announce the good news.
While singing his hit “Play It Again”, he took a moment to yell, “The Cavaliers won!” The crowd went absolutely nuts!
Seconds later, he stopped singing and told his band to stop playing to congratulate everyone.
“Congratulations, Cavaliers! You’re World Champions!” he yelled.
He let the crowd celebrate for a while before returning to singing “Play It Again”. Later on, he put on a Lebron James jersey in celebration.
What an amazing moment to witness! Watch it below!
