While he performed numerous songs, fans in attendance received a special treat when the country singer decided to play an entirely new song called “28.” Before jumping into the song, Bryan admitted, “Like I said, I have a new record coming out this year. I hope it doesn’t suck. This is a song called ’28.’ I hope you don’t hate it.”

Detailing how the song came about, Bryan recalled spending some time with his friends and realizing how lucky he was to be where he was. “Me and all the guys one time were bowling in New York City and I looked at all my best friends in the entire world and I realized how lucky I was to be in that exact moment, and I wrote this song about being content.”
