Tuesday night, Luke Bryan sang the National Anthem at the All-Star Game. Immediately afterward, he was getting flack for obviously reading the lyrics from his hand at several points during the song. There are a couple of times the camera captured him glancing down.
After the anthem, Luke tweeted that he wanted to explain what he was doing.
@lukebryanonline: Morning everyone. I really wanna explain the national anthem performance from last night. I had a few keys words written down to insure myself that I wouldn’t mess up. I just wanted to do my best. I promise it was from the heart. If I offended anyone with my approach I sincerely apologize. Anytime I sing the anthem it is an honor and my heart beats out of my chest. I did check my watch because I knew the stealth bomber would fly over 2 minutes in and I knew a started a little late. Being a part of the all star game was amazing and I look forward to the next time I can perform the anthem. Thanks y’all. Love ya
My question. Would you rather he mess up the National Anthem because he was nervous, or have a little "cheat sheet" on his hand? I prefer the later. And, by the way, he nailed the song. Watch the video below:
