Drink a beer, party’s here! Country superstar Luke Bryan stopped by the Ellen DeGeneres Show on an episode airing Thursday, April 3, where he knocked back a beer and a shot, per DeGeneres‘ request.
The “Country Girl” crooner, looking tan after hosting his annual spring break concerts last month in Panama City Beach, Fla., sat down with DeGeneres to discuss his partying ways.
“It’s the two days of my year I get to really be stupid,” 37-year-old Bryan said of his annual spring break tour. “Kind of rewind the clock a bit and have some fun.” The “Shake It for Me” singer added that it’s the only shows where he gets to drink onstage; therefore, he drinks “a lot of beer.”
DeGeneres then casually segued to note that one of her employees, Andy Zenor, “also drinks a lot of beer.” She called Andy to the stage and put the two men in a beer-chugging contest. Rising to the challenge, Bryan stood up, clinked beer glasses with his opponent, and started swigging it back.
Moments later, Zenor entirely destroyed Bryan, who was completely caught off-guard by his impressive drinking skills. “It’s four years at a state school,” he said.
The That’s My Kind of Night hitmaker, who hails from Georgia, was then given another chance to show up. Unfortunately, Zenor, a former show producer who now does on-air work for DeGeneres, won that round, too. The competitors then called it even over a shot of tequila.
Maybe he will redeem himself come Sunday, when he cohosts the ACM Awards alongside Blake Shelton, another unabashed onstage drinker, on Sunday, April 6.
