All right, we are joined by the one, the only Luke Bryan. Take a look there. Performing his hit "Country girl, shake it for me." Shake it for me and the cma fest. Iconic. Iconic performance. Now he's shaking things up on "Gma" joining us live from Wyoming to talk about the hottest night of country music this summer is Luke Bryan and, Luke, we can't wait to talk about cma guess of fest but we got to break this down. Have you your two sons with your wife Caroline. I understand you have two nieces, your nephew, also quarantining with you and you've inherited some other teens, as well so, yeah, how is that going for you? Yes, so we were down -- we were down at the beach when quarantine really went, you know, where we decided we're just going to stay there and my nephew had three other -- had a 19-year-old and we had three 18-year-olds and a 16-year-old boy, so for two months I had to prepare food for literally a football team and so I'm like a James beard chef now, I think. That quarantine is looking strong. A lot of team are doing virtual meetings now on zoom during quarantine. When you're doing that, discussing business with folks, are you like business on the top, pajama pants on the bottom kind of guy? What are you in those calls? You know what, I never plan -- I haven't started planning my zoom wardrobe yet. I'm blue jeans. Luke, you just scared the mess out of all of us. We didn't know what we were going to see when you stood up, man. Hey, I've seen all the epic fails. Let's talk cma best of fest. We were showing video of your first cma fest performance back in 2012. What do you remember? That was just a huge night. Huge performance. What do you remember about that night? Well, the whole -- the cma fest, when you put 50, 60,000 hard-core country fans in a football stadium, just the intensity and the excitement and the anticipation is really the energy is unlike anything you have can replicate and I mean my first time that I really went out there and did my performance, it is like -- it's like you're on a roller coaster and you're on it for -- it's just a wild ride and I'm so glad that we were able to continue -- obviously we were able to put a show together with cma best of fest and let the fans at home relive a lot of these memories. I mean, hi to go host -- I hosted this show in a football stadium and it was very emotional. Very -- it was just heartbreaking that all of our fans couldn't be there this year, but, you know, it's just one more testament of how, you know, how crazy this year is. Yeah, it is a difficult year, that's for sure. Speaking of that we want to put you on the spot a little bit here and play a game with you called song on the spot. And if you had to write a song about all of this being in quarantine, what would it be called and what would it be about? Oh, gosh. Well, see, I mean my wife and I, we've had to relearn because being in the crazy business I am, I mean, we've -- we've been together for quite a while and, you know, we're pretty -- I'm trying to figure out a way to write that, you know, because there are some divorces going around out there and divorces, you know, these quarantine divorces, but my wife and I, we're like better than ever so I guess ain't divorced yet or something. Ain't divorced yet. That's got a good ring to it. I'd listen to. Luke Bryan -- well, I ain't divorced yet Go. We got a song on our hands. Thanks once again and our own Michael Strahan will make an appearance during the special. You can see cma best of fest tonight at 8:00 P.M. Eastern right here on ABC. Always fun. We love Luke. How great was that.
