Luke Bryan brought the fun with his performance of “Knockin’ Boots” at the 2019 CMT Awards.

Bryan made his way to the stage via riser, the background projecting a digital version of a downtown scene. The country superstar greeted a team of dancers lined along the staircase as he made his way to the main stage where he busted out some of his own moves, including a subtle nod to his signature hip swivel.

Bryan was feeling the engaging melody, his voice smooth as he crooned “sweet tea needs that sugar stirrin,’ small town nights need both ends burnin,’ shades need drawin’, hearts need fallin,’ boots need knockin’, knockin’ boots.” Dancers filled the stage and platform above, lighting up the performance as much as the neon background. Bryan’s wife Caroline was first one on her feet at the song’s conclusion, joined by the rest of the crowd that cheered in support.

Bryan is nominated at the awards show for Male Video of the Year for “Sunrise, Sunburn, Sunset” alongside “Break Up in the End” by Cole Swindell, “Desperate Man” by Eric Church, Jason Aldean and Miranda Lambert’s “Drowns the Whiskey,”
“Lose It” from Kane Brown, Kenny Chesney’s “Get Along” and “Life Changes” from Thomas Rhett.
