Lyrical Mishap: Country Singer Luke Bryan Apologizes For Writing National Anthem Words On His Hand
What would you do if you were asked to sing the national anthem in front of hundreds of people? Country singer Luke Bryan recently learned what not to do when he wrote the lyrics on his hand prior to his performance and offended some people.
Bryan was asked to sing The Star Spangled Banner for the Major League Baseball All-Star game last night and angered some of his audience when he was seen looking down at his hand where he had apparently scrawled the lyrics. He later apologized on his Twitter with the following explanation:
I had a few keys words written down to insure myself that I wouldn't mess up. I just wanted to do my best. I promise it was from the heart.— Luke Bryan (@LukeBryanOnline) July 11, 2012
If I offended anyone with my approach I sincerely apologize. Anytime I sing the anthem it is an honor and my heart beats out of my chest.— Luke Bryan (@LukeBryanOnline) July 11, 2012
I did check my watch because I knew the stealth bomber would fly over 2 minutes in and I knew a started a little late.— Luke Bryan (@LukeBryanOnline) July 11, 2012
