As part of his “Raised Up Right” tour, Luke Bryan made a concert stop in Jacksonville, Florida on Friday night.
Hurricane Ian at the end of September forced Bryan, the popular country singer, to postpone and reschedule three of his shows in the state.
Bryan, who usually comes out singing one of his popular songs, walked out into the arena on Friday quietly with the stage lights on.
He wanted to be serious for a moment to talk about the deadly storm that impacted the southwest part of the Sunshine State.
The Florida Republican, Governor Ron DeSantis, made a surprise appearance as Bryan then called him onto the stage.
“We’re going to have some fun and we’re going to raise some money tonight for the great state of Florida,” Bryan announced to the packed crowd. “Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the stage, Governor Ron DeSantis.”
DeSantis ran out to cheers and applause! The governor threw out hats to the enthusiastic crowd and asked if they were “excited to be in the free state of Florida?”
Before encouraging everyone to get out and vote on November 8th, DeSantis talked about why he was there, “The state of Florida had to deal with the major hurricane last month, and it’s not easy to deal with. It’s hurt a lot of people. Though I can tell you this, show me any other state that can rebuild bridges in three days. I don’t think you can find that.”
Governor DeSantis thanked and praised Bryan for his earlier generous contribution to his Florida Disaster Fund.
Bryan took the opportunity to announce that he would donate all proceeds from his rescheduled show in Estero, Florida, located in the impacted area of the state, to the fund.
Que the Twitter mob. The leftists began their campaign to demonize and trash Luke Bryan once the videos of him welcoming DeSantis emerged.
Instead of ignoring the nonsense, Bryan responded with a statement that read, “I typically don’t respond to stuff when I’m getting a rundown on a social platform but here’s the deal. I understand Governor DeSantis is a very polarizing figure but I grew up in a country where if a governor asks you if they can come and raise awareness to help victims of a natural disaster you help.”
Bryan talked about how he has stayed out of politics for the most part throughout his career.
“I knew people would chatter about this but for me, the more important piece was if I am going to come back there a few weeks after a large portion of people have been affected by a natural disaster in a state where people have been good to me this felt right. Raise awareness, have a little fun between the GA and FL college fans before the game and do what I love on stage.”
What a novel idea…helping your fellow Americans no matter their governor’s political party.
