Luke Bryan, as Part of the Bud Light Championship Game Day Fan Zone, at Sun Life Stadium January 7

Oh. My. God. The Orange Bowl Committee has tapped Luke Bryan to headline the Bud Light Championship Game Day Fan Zone outside Sun Life Stadium before the BCS National Championship Game! We did it, Miami! The 348-member nonprofit organization heard our cry for pop country and slapped us with the American Music Awards' Favorite Male Country Artist! So get ready for a plethora of Tailgates & Tanlines and country girls who "shake it for the young bucks sittin' in the honky-tonks." The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are coming to town to battle the Alabama Crimson Tide, and the Big Mango is hosting a hoedown. But Luke Bryan's team lost in last month's SEC Championship game. "I'm a big [University of] Georgia Bulldogs fan," the singer recently said in an interview with Pennsylvania entertainment mag FlipSide. "We get a little crazy. When Georgia plays, I'm in front of the TV. Every game is a big game." Unfortunately, the Bulldogs got bumped off by Bama by four points. Too bad, Luke. See you at the BCS!
