Luke Bryan was among the many performers who turned out at a ceremony on May 12 honoring Lionel Richie, this year's recipient of the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song. PBS aired the event on Tuesday night.
During his time onstage, Luke performed "Lady," a classic from Lionel's catalog with a country connection. The song was recorded by Kenny Rogers in 1980, becoming a massive cross-genre hit for both artists.
The country genre was well represented during the ceremony, which featured a massive cast of performers from all genres. Garth Brooks and Chris Stapleton were also on hand to tribute the pop legend.
