If there’s one thing that we could use in 2020, it would be ‘One Margarita’! Clearly, Luke Bryan knew that as the country singer took the stage during the ACM Awards to perform his latest party anthem at the Grand Ole Opry House.
“One margarita, two margarita, three margarita, shot / Don’t worry ’bout tomorrow,” the country star belted while onstage on Wednesday, September 16.
Bryan, who was also nominated for the Entertainer of the Year Award, opened up the performance by expressing relief at how good it was “to be back on stage.”
“Woo!” the singer exclaimed. Bryan really tried to make it look like he was on vacation as he wore a tropical button-down T-shirt with light jeans, and the screen behind him displayed palm trees and ocean waves.

The song ‘One Margarita’ made it to the top of Billboard’s Country Airplay chart in July and also reached the 19th spot on the Billboard Hot 100. It has been Bryan’s most popular song since ‘Play It Again’ in 2014.
“During these challenging times, it’s a song that people can just dance and let go to,” Bryan told Billboard magazine about the tune. “It’s been fun watching my fans react on socials, and it’s gonna be even more fun when I get to see them react at a live show.”
In a conversation with The Tennessean earlier this week, the 44-year-old said that he “had to get kind of pumped” to perform onstage again, but he was proud to be doing it at the ACMs since there’s a lot of history associated with the awards show.
“I won my first New Artist of the Year with the ACMs, and then I won 2 Entertainer of the Years, and then … the ACMs were my first big hosting gig,” he revealed. There are so many memories through the years of where they propped me up as an artist and really got behind me. I’m really proud that they were able to get a show going, and get something really special.”
