Luke Bryan’s Iowa Farm Tour Show Included Maddie Poppe [VIDEOS]
The calendar said it was September 29, but those attending Luke Bryan's Farm Tour show outside Boone, Iowa last night must've found it hard to believe. Temperatures were in the mid-40's for the show, according to the National Weather Service. Those that were there swore it was colder, and who can blame them?
Brianna Ringen was at the show and told me "You could tell Luke was getting sick when he would talk but his singing still sounded perfect." Luke and his fans were dressed for the very wet night that featured nature's own fog machine. Brianna allowed us to share one of her videos that shows Luke's rain boots.
When Luke launched into his hit 'Country Girl'(Shake It For Me) he addressed the crowd by saying, "Ya'll are crazy as hell out there, Iowa." Samantha Jo captured that moment in this video.
Rain pouring down and Luke's breath visible in the air. This video perfectly shows just how tough the conditions were, for performer and fans alike.
The 'American Idol' judge didn't disappoint with a special guest that he'd promised in the days leading up to the show. When he brought out Clarksville, Iowa native, and this year's Idol winner Maddie Poppe, the crowd roared. Maddie started by joining Luke to sing 'Picture' (a hit for Kid Rock and Sheryl Crow). *Videos of Maddie's performances are courtesy of Emily Mennenga.
Then Luke left the stage to Maddie for her rendition of the Janis Joplin hit, 'Me and Bobby McGee.'
It was a very wet night, but one thousands of fans and Maddie Poppe will never forget.
