Luke Bryan Responds After Altercation with Heckler at Nashville Show

ABC/Image Group LALuke Bryan is speaking out after video on social media and YouTube captured an altercation with a concert-goer at Wednesday night’s Volunteer Jam in Nashville.

“A man in [the] front row was making crude hand gestures toward Luke during his performance,” Bryan's publicist explained in a statement. “It was insulting not only to him, but more importantly to the men, women and families sitting around him who were there to support Charlie Daniels and the efforts of raising money for military veterans -- some of who were in the audience. The concert security personnel saw the man’s disruptive actions of the event and he was escorted out.”

The two-time CMA Entertainer of the Year was performing his hit “Move” at the time, which he went on to finish after the incident. According to Rolling Stone, there were multiple men heckling the singer, with one waving a sign that read “We can see your camel toe,” a nod to Luke’s notoriously tight jeans.
