Countdown to the CMA Awards: Country's Greatest Crossover Hits with Robin Roberts 2015 - 2016 (TV Show)
Luke Bryan was an award-winning country singer who came to prominence in the early 2010s with hits like "I Don't Want This Night to End," "Crash My Party," and "Drunk on You. " Despite his impressive commercial success, Bryan's music received a mixed reception critically. In large part because of a series of annual EP releases and live performances he scheduled during Spring Break in Panama City Beach, Florida, Bryan was often lumped in with contemporaries like Florida Georgia Line and Jason Aldean as an example of "bro-country." A term coined by critic Jody Rosen in a 2013 New York magazine article, bro-country was derided for its shallow use of familiar country music tropes like drinking and pickup trucks in a rock and hip-hop-influenced pop context.
