Luke Bryan didn’t always make his money by headlining concerts and selling millions of albums. His early resume included jobs like stocking produce, working at K-Mart and driving tractors. As we head into this Labor Day weekend, Luke shares his least favorite jobs along the way: “At age 12 thru 13, I worked at Rubos IGA Supermarket in Leesburg, GA. I worked during the summers on Monday and Tuesday. I stocked and cleaned up the produce. They paid me under the table . . . I peeled off all of the brown lettuce. Let’s see, when I was 15, I was a cashier at K-Mart for two months. I worked at K-Mart for two months, and then I reverted back to Rubos because it didn’t really make sense for me to drive all the way into Albany and work for K-Mart. The benefits were great though-you’d get an hour-long on the blue light special. So I started back at Rubos, and then I quit Rubos and worked for my Dad-just awful just driving tractors through cotton all day, and spraying pesticides that eventually would turn your hair green. And then at some point, I started playing guitar. And well, after college I went back and worked for my dad and continued to spray and haul fertilizer around. And then I moved to Nashville . . .”
Luke takes his What Makes You Country Tour XL Stadium Sized to Chicago’s Wrigley Field this Saturday (September 1st) but before hitting the concert stage he will make a stop in South Bend, Indiana to serve a celebrity guest game picker on ESPN’s College GameDay. As the Fighting Irish and the Wolverines are set to play at Notre Dame Stadium to launch their season opener, Luke will visit the set, located in the Library Quad, with host Rece Davis and analysts Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit and Desmond Howard. Luke said, “I love the excitement as college football season begins. Even on tour, we make plans to watch the games every Saturday by setting up our own tailgate area outside our buses.” The pregame show begins at 9 a.m. on ESPN, with Luke expected to appear around 11:30 a.m.
