“The Firestone Legends Day Concert continues to attract the top names in country music every year, and 2020 will be no exception with Luke Bryan headlining the show,” IMS President J. Douglas Boles said. “Luke’s high-octane performances will charge up our fans for Race Weekend, and we know they’ll sing along with hit after hit. This show will be a perfect match for ‘The Greatest Spectacle in Racing.’”
This will be Bryan’s second concert at IMS, and first in a decade. He performed as rising young talent in the Pagoda Plaza on Brickyard 400 weekend in 2010. Since then, Bryan has emerged as one of the biggest stars in the history of country music.
Bryan is a two-time Academy of Country Music and a two-time Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year, a five-time host of the ACM Awards, a celebrity judge on ABC’s “American Idol,” a NSAI Artist/Songwriter of the Year and was named a CMT Artist of the Year six consecutive years.
He has more certified digital singles than any other country artist, with 46 million tracks and 12 million albums with 4 billion music streams. Bryan has now placed 23 singles at No. 1, 12 of which he co-wrote.
In May 2019, Bryan launched his “Sunset Repeat Tour” with special guests Cole Swindell and Jon Langston and played for 50,000 fans during its opening weekend. He followed that success with a sold-out show in Boston’s Gillette Stadium, bringing his career headline stadium concert tally to 35.
Last summer, Bryan also opened Nashville’s only six-floor entertainment facility in the heart of Music City, LUKE’S 32 BRIDGE FOOD + DRINK. The name was inspired by Bryan’s childhood home near Route 32 Bridge in Lee County, Georgia.
As the Official Tire of Country Music™ and the Official Tire of the Indianapolis 500, Firestone has served as the presenting sponsor of Legends Day since it debuted in 2014. The partnership brings together two platforms – racing and country music – that have played significant roles in the rich history of the time-tested Firestone brand.
The 104th Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge is scheduled for Sunday, May 24. Tickets are on sale now at IMS.com or by calling or visiting the IMS Ticket Office.
