WATCH: Luke Bryan Honors First Responders, Hometown Heroes in ‘Country On’ Video

by Blake Ells

Luke Bryan’s latest single is quickly rising at country radio. “Country On” is a blue-collar anthem about professions of all sorts. It celebrates the work of farmers, first responders, truck drivers and everyone in between. Now, he has a music video to complement the tune. Check it out below:

The video begins on a farm, where Luke Bryan hops down from a tractor and into his pickup truck. As he drives around town, he passes many of the working folks that he praises in the song. He motions for a truck driver to pull his horn. He swings by his own 32 Bridge on Broadway in Nashville to salute the bartending staff.

The video also includes a nighttime parade of police and fire trucks across the Cumberland River. It’s quite a colorful scene as he reaches the part of his song where he salutes the first responders. Luke Bryan leads the parade right to the middle of Broadway, stops his vehicle and leads the group out of theirs.

Metro Nashville Police Department posted their gratitude to Luke Bryan for including their staff. Check it out below.

“THANK YOU to Luke Bryan for including Officer Evan Grace, Sgt. Zach Bevis & Officer Kelly Turcios in the video for his new song Country On. The video was recorded in downtown Nashville this morning,” the police department shared in a post made on July 1.

As the music video concludes, Luke Bryan shakes each officer’s hand as fireworks light up the sky over Lower Broadway. It’s a great video, and Luke Bryan’s followers on Facebook loved it. It’s a perfect complement to the tribute he aimed for in the song itself.
