Luke Bryan defends anthem performance; ‘It was from the heart’

Singer Luke Bryan took to Twitter today to dispel suggestions that he was checking his watch out of boredom while singing the national anthem at Tuesday’s Major League Baseball All-Star game. He also responded to criticisms that he was reading from crib notes written on his hand.

I had a few keys words written down to insure myself that I wouldn't mess up. I just wanted to do my best. I promise it was from the heart.

Luke Bryan's verson of the national anthem @ the All-Star game last night was an epic fail. He needs to learn respect & remember the lyrics!

What about checking the watch?

I did check my watch because I knew the stealth bomber would fly over 2 minutes in and I knew a started a little late.

OK, we’ll buy that. We also get nervous when stealth bombers are involved.

If I offended anyone with my approach I sincerely apologize. Anytime I sing the anthem it is an honor and my heart beats out of my chest.

The fans seem to have forgiven Bryan.

Coming from a guy who has lyric sheets on stage….I have zero issue with @LukeBryanOnline writing cheat sheets #letsseeyoudoithaters #relax
