Luke Bryan isn't taking his preparation for singing "The Star-Spangled Banner" at this year's Super Bowl lightly.
The 40-year-old country star opened up about his upcoming big moment during an NFL press conference on Thursday, and had nothing but praise for Lady Gaga, who sang last year's well-received national anthem. Gaga is now headlining the Super Bowl halftime show.
"I think she did an amazing job last year, and through this process, I've kinda gone back through the years and watched how people approached the anthem, and just tried to figure out in my mind how I wanted to approach it," Bryan told Et's Kevin Frazier. "I think it's just about ... you know, last year she put her stamp on it, which was amazing, and it's a big moment for me, and I'm excited to get out there and hopefully put my stamp on it."
