Luke Bryan Apologizes to Dustin Lynch for ‘Sarcastic’ intro at Crash My Playa

Luke Bryan turned to Instagram Stories last night (Wednesday, January 25th) to publicly apologize to Dustin Lynch – for the controversial introduction he gave Dustin.

Bryan had called him to the stage, on the last night of his annual music-fest, Crash My Playa, in Mexico, on Sunday (January 22nd).  Some on social media took issue with his comments…  They included this:  “No one has drank more liquor, no one has vomited more, no one has taken more drugs, no one has taken more IVs, no one has passed more STD tests than this next gentleman right here…”  Luke explains that his words were “complete sarcasm.”

Luke sent the message while he said he was dealing with “flooded cornfield, doing a little duck hunting.”  He said, “Just saw where people are starting to chat about my introduction of Dustin Lynch.  Dustin Lynch is one of my dearest friends on the planet.  No one respects him more than I do and that night at (Crash My) Playa, Sunday night, the last night I get everybody out and my introduction of him was complete sarcasm.”

He added, “Those words were so absurd.  I figured everybody would take it as sarcasm.  Obviously some people didn’t.  I spoke to Dustin.  I love him.  He and I are all good – and I apologize to anybody that doesn’t understand my humor and sarcasm.  It’s been going on like that, down there, for years…

Dustin responded to Luke via Instagram Stories writing, “Thx for the call, love ya bro.  All good.  We had a lot of fun down there again with the pirates.”
