Luke Bryan says he's always enjoyed spending time on the shoreline.  And the country star knows he's not alone in his love of the sand and surf. 

Bryan says Panama City Beach, Florida has always been one of his favorite places.  The Gulf Coast community is only a three-hour drive from his Georgia hometown, and he recalls that when he was a kid his family would often vacation there.  Luke adds that there's "nothing like rolling the windows down and smelling the beach, salt air, all that stuff when you're rollin' into town." 

Panama City Beach has become Bryan's go-to spot for his annual spring break celebrations.  He played this year's concerts at Spinnacker's last week.  A total of 120-thousand fans turned out for the two shows.
