Ol’ Luke has officially reached the Las Vegas residency portion of his career.

Luke Bryan kicked off his Las Vegas residency at Resorts World this weekend, and as with any Luke Bryan show, you can count on a few things…

A bunch of #1 singles, a bunch of beer drinking, and of course, Luke shaking his ass like a madman…

And look, if I’m going to Las Vegas, the LAST thing I wanna do is go see a Luke Bryan show, but he’s a country music superstar, he’s an American Idol judge, he’s got a ton of fans, and he puts asses in the seats.

He also apparently puts the facemasks in the garbage…

Earlier this week, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak removed the state’s mask mandate,

And according to Rolling Stone, Luke is taking some credit for it:

“You know, I’d like to take some personal credit in getting rid of the mask mandate. I really appreciate that…

I feel like the governor saw that we were all coming here and he was like, ‘Ah just fuck it.’

It happens on my weekend? Shit yeah…. and now, ya’ll knock boots out there without a mask on.”

Luke’s got jokes.

His residency will continue on through February, and pick up again in the summer.
