Whiskey Riff says Luke Bryan is taking some heat over his recent words. On Saturday night, Luke introduced Dustin Lynch at the 8th annual “Crash My Playa” event in Cancun. Luke Bryan reacts after his controversial Dustin Lynch introduction.

Here is Luke’s intro.  “No one has drank more liquor! No one has vomited more! No one has taken more drugs! No one has taken more IVs! No one has passed more STD tests than this next gentleman. He has got a clean bill! He does not have diseases! Give it up for Dustin Lynch!”

Here are some of the reactions from the internet.

“What Luke Bryan said about Dustin Lynch is absolutely uncalled for! Nobody deserves an introduction to the stage like Luke did to Dustin”

“I love luke but he sounded like an idiot making that introduction good grief”

“I am beyond disappointed in what Luke said about Dustin that was not cool at all”

Luke posted; “Just saw where people are starting to chat about my introduction of Dustin Lynch. No one respects him more than I do and that night at [Crash My] Playa, Sunday night, the last night I get everybody out and my introduction of him was complete sarcasm. Those words were so absurd. I figured everybody would take it as sarcasm. Obviously, some people didn’t. I spoke to Dustin. I love him. He and I are all good and I apologize to anybody that doesn’t understand my humor and sarcasm. It’s been going on like that down there for years. We’ll see y’all next year. Go download Dustin’s new single [‘Stars Like Confetti’]. Love y’all.”

Country Music's Top Five Bromances Over The Years

Country music stars have always been quite friendly even though they compete each week for spots on the country charts and ticket sales to their concerts.

Over the years, several bromances have developed between some of country music’s most prominent male superstars. We look at the Top 5 Country Music bromances from the last decade, and the guys have outdone themselves on the friendship scale.

  • 5 - Darius Rucker and Lady A's Charles Kelley

    Darius makes friends with many people in the entertainment industry. He once told us while we were discussing his friendship with the Duck Dynasty reality show guys that when he likes someone and their work, he reaches out to start a friendship whenever he can. Darius and Charles have been buddies since Rucker started touring with Lady A toward the beginning of his country music career back in 2011 on Lady A’s “Own The Night” tour.

  • 4 - Dierks Bentley and Thomas Rhett

    These guys have been buddies for a while now and live close to each other in the Nashville area. Once while Thomas was waiting in a grocery store line and realized he didn’t have any money, Dierks happened to be behind him in line and loaned him the cash for his purchase. Rhett also had some fun playing part of Bentley’s parody band Hot Country Knights.

  • 3 - Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw

    Kenny and Tim’s friendship goes way back to when the guys first came to Nashville in the early 1990s. The guys have retained their 30-year friendship over the years and even did a duet together called “Like A Rock Star” in 2012.

  • 2 - Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton

    These two superstars recently made another Top 5 list for getting mistaken for each other at times when out in public. Blake and Luke trade fun jabs and even hosted the ACM Awards in 2013. Despite people occasionally saying they don’t like each other, they are good friends.

  • 1 - Kane Brown and Chris Young

    Kane and Chris have been friends since Brown was first signed to Young’s RCA label in 2105. While they supported each other from that fateful day, it wasn’t until Young’s “Famous Friends” duet with Kane in 2021 became such a big hit and award nominee that their friendship became well-known.
