Luke Bryan kicked off Super Bowl LI on Sunday with a flawless performance of the National Anthem, and the country crooner knew exactly how he was going to celebrate.
After finishing the high-profile performance, Bryan hustled off stage while the crowd at the NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas, was still roaring with applause. The 40-year-old "Kick the Dust Up" singer stopped to talk with ET's Kevin Frazier as he exited the field.
"It was crazy!" an excited Bryan exclaimed. "I need a drink now!"

Last year, Lady Gaga performed the National Anthem with a bombastic performance and this year she was tapped to headline the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show. Could we soon be seeing Bryan taking the Halftime Show stage?
