Luke Bryan Surprises Cleveland Street Guitarist, Dances to his Own Music


This weekend, Progressive Field wasn't the only place to catch a performance by Luke Bryan (read our concert review here).

The country singer also leapt out of a car Saturday, to dance along with a Cleveland busker playing Bryan's hit single "That's My Kind of Night" on Prospect Avenue. The moment was thankfully captured in an Instagram video by Ben Hayslip of Nashville-based band The Peach Pickers (the guitarist was the band's Rhett Atkins.)

"This street player named Luke Brown is pretty good! Even got @lukebryan dancin!" Hayslip said in his post's caption.

This was ahead of Bryan's performance later that night, a stop on his Huntin', Fishin' & Lovin' Every Day Tour, which goes through late October.
