Luke Bryan closed out Winstock on Saturday evening and the show was everything I anticipated and more!!  He played all of his hits including I Don't Want This Night to End, Drunk On You and Country Girl, Shake it For Me.  

When he came on stage the crowd went insane, myself included.  The first part of his show was all ballads which was a little disappointing.  He picked up the pace in the second half and had the crowd dancing and singing along with him.

He took a moment to thank everyone for making him ACM Entertainer of the Year, which I thought was really cool.  He obviously has a huge fan base and knows he wouldn't be where he is without them.

There was an elaborate stage with lots of lights and smoke.  Overall, it was a really good setup.  He was an excellent choice to close out Winstock.  My only complaint is that he needs some more upbeat songs the crowds can go wild with!
