What could be better than Tom Brady at the Super Bowl LI? Luke Bryan, that is!
The country music sensation is set to sing the National Anthem at the upcoming football event on Saturday, Feb. 5 in Houston, Texas, where the New England Patriots will face off against the Atlanta Falcons.
The NFL confirmed the exciting news on Sunday, Jan. 22. Luke, 40, later took to Twitter to express how much he can't wait for his first-ever Super Bowl performance.

"Excited to perform the National Anthem on @NFL's biggest stage #SB51. See y'all in Houston," he wrote alongside a clip of him addressing his more than eight million followers. Luke — who has 17 No. 1 hits — is additionally the Country Music Association entertainer of the year.
Previous National Anthem Super Bowl performers include Whitney Houston, Garth Brooks, Alicia Keys, Diana Ross, Billy Joel, and Lady Gaga, who will be headlining this year's halftime show.
The highly-publicized — and usually star-studded! — event will hopefully also feature Tom's stunning model wife, Gisele Bündchen, who gave her quarterback hubby a sweet Instagram shoutout after his big AFC championship win on Sunday Jan. 22.
"Congratulations my love! @tombrady #GoPats," the 36-year-old captioned the rare photo of the couple showing their Patriots pride together. Too cute!
If one thing is for sure, we can't wait to watch Luke kick the dust up in two short weeks!
