Luke Bryan responded to a music critic who said he "phoned it in" during a recent concert in Minnesota. Then, he told another country music publication to "kiss my a--."
It all started with a review written by Russ Raihala in the St. Paul Pioneer Press. He described Luke's performance as "less animated," "aimless," "distracted" and "listless." He compared the show to other concerts he has seen from Luke and noted that the venue was smaller than his stadium tour and there were empty seats. The review started with the question, "Has Luke Bryan peaked?"
Luke responded, saying, that his show was sold out and the crowd had a great time. He also falsely accused them of never writing a positive review about him. The writer followed up with multiple positive reviews that have been written in the past, and Luke had to admit he was thinking of a different newspaper.
A country music blog, Saving Country Music, got involved in the argument when they wrote an article saying that Luke might be better served listening to Raihala than fight back.
"You can kiss my a--too," was Luke's response.
"This phoned in thing got me mad," he wrote. "Hell. I'm 47. Some nights my damn knees hurt. However, y'all gotta job to do. Go get some followers. Been 10 years since my last Twitter war. Peace and I love everyone."
Luke wasn't done yet.
"Check Pollstar numbers if you think I'm in decline saving country dude."
His tour wraps this month. In December, Luke will pick up his Las Vegas residency.
