Luke Bryan has a rule against fans grabbing his butt, but rules are made to be broken.
At his concert at the Sprint Center in Kansas City on Friday, the country singer let one very lucky fan go in for the butt-grab.
Thanks to the Crossroads Hospice Gift of a Day program, 88-year-old Frances Stanaway, who’s currently fighting a terminal illness, was able to attend Bryan’s concert and go to a meet-and-greet beforehand.
“I like the way he keeps up with his music,” Stanaway told KSHB. “I like all the songs.”
But it’s not just Bryan’s music that Stanaway likes. Asked if she finds the singer attractive she didn’t hesitate. “Oh heavens, yes!” she said while sporting a T-shirt featuring his picture and the words “Shake it for me, Luke.”
“This is probably the most excited she’s been for six to seven months,” said her son Vincent Sokolaski.
Last year on “The Ellen Show” Bryan laid out his rules about butt-grabbing.
“It’s funny ’cause you see, early on in your career you don’t want to tell your fans that they can’t interact with you, so you let them get away with kisses on the cheek and all that,” Bryan explained. “Someone will go ‘Can I grab your butt?’ … and back then if it was a polite ask, we would oblige them. But then you got 90 others…”
That’s why Bryan had to implement a no-touching rule at his meet-and-greets, though it doesn’t always work. “They’ll sneak one in on ya,” he said.
In Stanaway’s case, Bryan made an exception for a special fan, letting her grab his butt, and posing for a hilarious picture, too.
