A sold-out crowd packed into Aaron's Amphitheater at Lakewood on Sunday night to rock with a couple of Georgia boys.
Luke Bryan brought his Dirt Road Diaries Tour to town. Bryan grew up in Leesburg, Ga., and attended Georgia Southern University.
It's been a good year for Bryan. This marks his first tour as a headliner. He was in town last year opening for Jason Aldean and played Sanford Stadium in Athens with him earlier this year. Bryan was named Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year by the Academy of County Music in 2013. He also picked up the awards for Top Country Artist, Album and Song at the Billboard Music Awards.
Some of Bryan's biggest hits include "Drunk on You," "Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye," "I Don't Want This Night To End" and "Country Girl."
Bryan releases "Crash My Party," his fourth studio album, on August 13.
The concert's opener was Florida Georgia Line. They are the band behind the popular song "Cruise."
The band is comprised of Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley. Hubbard is from Monroe, Ga. Kelley is from Ormond Beach, Fla.
Husband and wife Keifer and Shawna Thompson from Thompson Square played Sunday night, too. "Are You Going To Kiss Me Or Not" is one of their big hits.
Former Atlanta Brave Chipper Jones and current player Brian McCann were among the people spotted in the crowd.
