If you're a boss this morning, here's something to keep in mind on a Monday morning: A lot of country music fans went and saw Luke Bryan at SPAC last night and even though it was a Sunday night, it didn't feel like one.

20,000 plus packed SPAC last night for The Raised Up Right Tour with superstar Luke Bryan

And Luke would agree considering how he shouted out Upstate fans on social media!

Luke Bryan at SPAC had been an annual tradition until Covid wreaked havoc on the world and seemingly stopped time for 3-4 years.  If you stop and think about all the things we missed out on during that very exhausting period, it's no wonder why a concert like the one that happened at SPAC last night was such a big deal.  It had been OVER 3 years since Luke came to Upstate New York - and we were ready.

Saratoga Springs you made a Sunday feel like a Saturday #RaisedUpRightTour

It had been a while, but the country superstar who loves performing here and the rabid fan base that missed him dearly finally had a party night together for the first time in a while, and it didn't disappoint.

Luke Bryan makes a memorable return to SPAC after a 3-year hiatus - and this show was everything!

The crowd was rowdy, energetic, and feeling good, and they came in droves. Morgan Wallen at SPAC last month was the most people I've ever seen at that venue, but Sunday night's Luke show matched the energy even if there were a few fewer people there.

Shortly after the show ended last night, Luke shouted out his loyal Upstate NY fan base, who partied like it was a weekend despite being a Sunday.

Surely some of us are paying for it this morning, but after a 3-year absence, it was long overdue - and based upon what he wrote after the show, I think Luke would agree!

LOOK! Abandoned Orange County Chopper HQs in Newburgh-TLC's 'American Chopper'

WARNING: Under no circumstances should you enter this property. By doing so you risk bodily harm and/or prosecution for trespassing on private property.
In 2003, a father-son business reality show hit the Discovery Channel. It was called American Chopper and it followed the custom motorcycle-building business of the Teutul family out of Newburgh, NY. Paul Sr. owned the shop with sons Paul Jr. and Mikey working in the business. There was a slew of cast and characters. The center of the show wasn't just the amazing custom motorcycles built for celebrities and others, it was the volatile relationship between Sr. and Jr. The show ran for 12 seasons before the two could no longer get along. It ended up in lawsuits and the two not talking for ten-plus years. In the past few years, the business moved to Florida. This left the 61,000-square-foot headquarters for sale and abandoned. Take a look at what remains of Orange County Choppers.
