Entertainer Of The Year nominee Luke Bryan heated up the ACM Awards with a performance of his 25th consecutive No. 1 single “One Margarita” on Wednesday (Sept. 16).
Bryan’s colorful performance brought summertime, island-vibes similar to the music video for the song, wearing a Hawaiian shirt with a vibrant palm tree scenery filling the background.
“The beauty of ‘One Margarita’ just brings a fun party-like scenario to the show, so you know just excited to be up there,” Bryan said ahead of his ACM performance. “I get to wear a very Island, cheery shirt, it makes me want to leave Nashville and fly to the Islands.”
