Luke Bryan plays a sold-out show at prestigious Madison Square Garden in New York for the first time, weaving "That's My Kind Of Night", "Drink A Beer" and "Drunk On You" into the concert. His opening acts are Lee Brice and Cole Swindell.

It took a whole five minutes for Bryant and crew to sell out the historic venue, bring the That's My Kinda Night tour to the Big Apple, and the audience loved him in return and his energy and stage presence was infectious. Bryan really gave it his all, holding the New York crowd in the palm of his hand. During "Country Girl (Shake It For Me)" a female fan jumped on stage, which sidetracked Bryan and he had to start the song over.

In the most emotional moment of the night, Bryan changed the pace of his show with "Drink a Beer," he accompanied himself on acoustic guitar on an elaborate set that was reminiscent of an "edge of a pier," to quote the song's lyric. He lifted up his can of beer in the air and drank a sip of it, after the song was well-received by the fans.

    Emmylou Harris joins the Grand Ole Opry. Inducted by bluegrass legend Bill Monroe, Harris summed up her induction by saying "Music is like food, sustenance. You certainly don't do it for the spotlight. You do it for the amazing exhilaration of singing, the feeling of the music going through you."
