The altercation was captured by Heather Davis via the Nash Country Daily.
Why did Luke Bryan punch someone at a concert?
According to Bryan’s rep who spoke to E! News, the country singer confronted the man after he “was making crude hand gestures toward him during his performance,”
“It was insulting not only to him, but more importantly to the men, women and families sitting around him who were there to support and celebrate Charlie Daniels and the efforts of raising money for the military veterans – some of who were in the audience.
“The concert security personnel saw the man’s disruptive actions of the event and he was escorted out,” they added.
The concert continued after the man was escorted out and Bryan joined Daniels with singing The Devil Went Down to Georgia.
