"So check this out," he told the crowd. "The last time I was in North Carolina, I busted my ass onstage! What is it about North Carolina that makes me bust my ass?" Bryan asked his screaming fans. (The country crooner was referring to a fall in Greensboro in February). "The point is YouTube that s---," he said, before launching into the tune of his hit single "Crash My Party."
