Luke Bryan is the hottest thing going in country music these days, and some of the credit for that runaway success has to go to his steamy, onstage dance moves. If you don’t know what we’re talking about, a new viral video compiles all of Luke’s signature gyrations, set to the hip-hop hit “Don’t Drop That Thun Thun,” by Finatticz. That clip is now past the 300,000 views mark on YouTube.

So, where did a country boy from Georgia learn to shake it so well? He tells Entertainment Weekly, “I’m from the age of MC Hammer and Michael Jackson and all of that, so I used to stand up and dance to them, like, all day.”

Luke’s skin-hugging jeans are a far cry from the baggy parachute pants MC Hammer used to rock in the early ’90s, though. While he doesn’t wear his pants that tight in real life, Luke would never disappoint the female fans who pay hard-earned money for his concert tickets.  

He adds, “If they want to see some tight jeans, I’ll pull ’em on.”

Luke’s latest single, “That’s My Kind of Night,” is tailor-made for his dance moves. It’s the first song on Luke’s new album, Crash My Party, in stores now.
