Luke Bryan was on hand at the 2011 CMT Music Awards to perform his new hit “Country Girl (Shake It For Me)” off his new album “Tailgates & Tanlines,” which is due out Aug. 9, 2011. It will be Luke’s third studio album since bursting onto the country scene in 2007.

“Country Girl” is his eleventh single in his career and we thought he pretty much rocked it at the CMT Music Awards. The back up dancers weren’t too shabby either. YOu can see Luke Bryan again on CMT’s “Crossroads” show June 24 with the Doobie Brothers. The two acts will perform hits including “Black Water,” “Long Train Running,” “Country Girl” and “Do I.”

Luke is also the headliner of the 10th annual CMT Tour with special guests Lee Brice and Josh Thompson. The tour kicks off in September with 25 shows around the country.
