Luke Bryan will be front and center as a Judge on the season finale of American Idol takes place this Sunday (5/21), and the Top 3 contestants – Megan Danielle, Colin Stough, and Iam Tongi – will vie for the sought-after title of “American Idol.”

Luke recently told us,  “I think the talent on this year of American Idol is the best we’ve ever had. When I look at our Top 10, any of those kids can go and be massive superstars.”

He added, “I think it’s really important for us to put these kids in a situation where they want to be in music their whole life, and they want to get out there and tour and make all their dreams come true.”

Bryan is set to perform his latest single, “But I Got A Beer In My Hand,” on the Season Finale in addition to Keith Urban, who will return to the Idol stage to mentor the finalists and perform a song of his own.

Fellow judges Katy Perry and Lionel Richie will also perform, as well as Lainey Wilson, Jelly Roll, Season 2 stars Clay Aiken and Ruben Studdard, Ellie Goulding, James Blunt, Jazmine Sullivan, Kevin Cronin from REO Speedwagon, Kylie Minogue, Lauren Daigle, Pitbull, and TLC, among others.

The American Idol Season 21 finale will air live on Sunday (5/21) at 8 PM ET on ABC.

Bryan recently announced that he would headline his fourteenth “Farm Tour” this September during a break from his “Country On Tour” launching June 15. The Georgia native will set up stages in the fields of local farms from September 14-23, 2023. Special guests will be announced at a later time.

Luke said in a statement, “One of the reasons we created these Farm Tour shows – to bring the big-city tour to the people. These nights are one-of-a-kind, and we really enjoy getting to know the farmers and their families, love the whole atmosphere of playing on these incredible farms and watching entire communities come together and get excited about these shows.”

Bryan recently talked about how his Farm Tour has grown. He said, “The Farm Tour has grown throughout the years, and the fact that we can set a stage up in a hayfield or some kind of field and people flock to it is what I envisioned when I created Farm Tour, and to obviously help some kids with scholarships and stuff like that. But the Farm Tour has grown every year, and it’s always something we look forward to. It’s really an exciting time to be able to just be out on a farm on a Fall night.”

Country Music's Top Five Bromances Over The Years

  • 5 - Darius Rucker and Lady A's Charles Kelley

    Darius makes friends with many people in the entertainment industry. He once told us while we were discussing his friendship with the Duck Dynasty reality show guys that when he likes someone and their work, he reaches out to start a friendship whenever he can. Darius and Charles have been buddies since Rucker started touring with Lady A toward the beginning of his country music career back in 2011 on Lady A’s “Own The Night” tour.

  • 4 - Dierks Bentley and Thomas Rhett

    These guys have been buddies for a while now and live close to each other in the Nashville area. Once while Thomas was waiting in a grocery store line and realized he didn’t have any money, Dierks happened to be behind him in line and loaned him the cash for his purchase. Rhett also had some fun playing part of Bentley’s parody band Hot Country Knights.

  • 3 - Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw

    Kenny and Tim’s friendship goes way back to when the guys first came to Nashville in the early 1990s. The guys have retained their 30-year friendship over the years and even did a duet together called “Like A Rock Star” in 2012.

  • 2 - Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton

    These two superstars recently made another Top 5 list for getting mistaken for each other at times when out in public. Blake and Luke trade fun jabs and even hosted the ACM Awards in 2013. Despite people occasionally saying they don’t like each other, they are good friends.

  • 1 - Kane Brown and Chris Young

    Kane and Chris have been friends since Brown was first signed to Young’s RCA label in 2105. While they supported each other from that fateful day, it wasn’t until Young’s “Famous Friends” duet with Kane in 2021 became such a big hit and award nominee that their friendship became well-known.
