Luke Bryan Recaps 2020 with Top Nine Instagram Posts Collage

Country music singer Luke Bryan has his own way of looking back upon 2020, which he does by sharing his top nine Instagram posts.

Bryan shares posts with his family during a year where he and other artists weren’t able to have concerts.

One photo appears to show Bryan apparently being mistaken for another country music singer, Blake Shelton, on a TV show. Yet another one shows him with his wife all dressed up. Another one has him, his wife, and his two sons all ready to go out hunting.

It’s a potpourri of images reflecting different times of Bryan’s year, one where he let his 5.6 million Instagram followers in on his antics.

Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton Are Highest-Paid Country Stars

Speaking of Bryan and Shelton, they happened to both make on Forbes’ annual list of top-earning celebrities.

Bryan, a judge on “American Idol” beat Shelton, a mentor on “The Voice” by $2 million. It’s the singing competitions that allow both stars to separate themselves from other country performers. No other country singers made the top 100.

Bryan ranked No. 62. Shelton was No. 70. The COVID-19 pandemic destroyed a ton of profit from all the singers, no matter the genre. Additionally, the coronavirus forced performers to postpone or cancel their gigantic, money-making tours.

Shelton earns $13 million per season from “The Voice.” That means almost 60 percent of his income is from television.

Bryan Admits He Misses Performing In Front of Fans

Meanwhile, Bryan is not the first country music star who will admit that he’s ready to start singing again in front of the public.

Born in Leesburg, Ga., Bryan was recently recognized by Billboard as its Top Country Artist of the 2010s. That honor was given to him thanks to 11 No. 1 songs on the Weekly Country Songs chart and nine No. 1 albums on the Top Country Albums.

In addition, Bryan is a two-time Academy of Country Music and Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year and a five-time host of the ACM Awards. He’s sold over 15 million albums and 60 million singles worldwide.
