Luke Bryan was one of many to honor his friend and fellow ‘American Idol’ Judge Lionel Richie during The Library of Congress Gershwin Prize Ceremony.
Luke performed ‘Lady’ as a tribute to Lionel who received the esteemed award.
Before the performance, he spoke very highly of his friend. “You know how we all have bad days. I wake up, I have a bad day. And then I tell myself that somewhere, Lionel Richie ain’t having a bad day, so you better have a good day, To be here for nights like this means the world to me, wouldn’t miss it for the world,” he adds. “This guy is everything you believe he is, I promise you. So, I’m honored to be here.”
If you could have one celebrity to ‘honor’ you, who would you choose?
