Luke Bryan Creates Slow Jam to Remember With ‘The Chair’ and ‘Strip it Down’ [Watch]
What's the only thing that can make a Luke Bryan hit better? A George Strait classic. Bryan treated fans to a medley of his sexy slow jam "Strip it Down" and Strait's iconic “The Chair" at a show on his Kill the Lights Tour recently, creating a memorable moment for everyone in the crowd.
The hip-shaking country star sat at a keyboard to provide a — no pun intended — stripped-down version of his tune, but first began with the clever story Strait tells through “The Chair,” starting with the narrator claiming a woman stole his seat. The artist clearly loves the song, putting nearly all his effort into his emotional vocal performance, accenting it occasionally with the keys.
Fans swayed, enjoying the throwback hit from 1985, before Bryan wrapped the chorus, leaving a break in the music to get some encouragement from the crowd to keep going.
“We cool with this? Everybody good?” he eggs on in the clip as they cheer, then playing the foreboding chord everyone recognizes as the beginning of "Strip it Down." Bryan accompanies himself on keys alongside his band in an acoustic-fueled setup, giving an extended performance of the tune for the crowd. It's moments like this that make fans snap up Luke Bryan tickets in such huge numbers.
Bryan recently headlined his first show at the iconic Madison Square Garden and is gearing up to co-headline with Jason Aldean and Little Big Town at the Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam this September. His latest video, "Fast" — his sixth single from Kill the Lights — is a tribute to the things that really matter in life and features photos from his childhood all the way through present day.
