Luke Bryan brought his current single, "One Margarita" to the season finale of American Idol on Sunday (May 17).
For the performance, the country star teamed up virtually with his band in front of a green screen that showed footage from the official "One Margarita" music video. The spirited track is dedicated to having a good time out in the sun, of course with the help of tequila.
"One margarita, two margarita, three margarita, shot / Don't worry 'bout tomorrow / Leave all your sorrow out here on the floatin' dock," Bryan sings in the song.
"It’s a drinking song Ryan, a lot of people are drinking out there during the pandemic," the country star told Idol host Ryan Seacrest before his performance.
"One Margarita," co-written by Michael Carter, Matt Dragstrem and Josh Thompson, comes from his forthcoming new album, Born Here, Live Here, Die Here. It follow up previously released tracks including "Knockin’ Boots," "What She Wants Tonight" and "Born Here, Live Here, Die Here."
Bryan's highly anticipated album release date was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Originally the project was due out on April 24, but will now be released on August 7. Additionally, the tour dates for his "Proud To Be Right Here Tour" were postponed as well. At this time, the first show of the tour is scheduled for July 12 in St. Louis, MO.
