Luke Bryan Joins Carrie Underwood and Tim McGraw for "MDA Show of Strength" Sunday

Capitol NashvilleLuke Bryan joins Carrie Underwood and Tim McGraw on this Sunday's MDA Show of Strength special airing at 8 p.m. ET. The show is the new incarnation of the annual MDA Labor Day telethon, and Luke is proud to take part.  He recently taped his portion of the show at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville.

"The MDA is just such a strong charity and such a strong organization and to be asked by them to be a part of the telethon was a no-brainer for us," Luke says.  "We all grew up watching the telethon, and it’s just such an amazing charity and an amazing event."

Carole King, Pitbull and Will.i.am are also on the show, and Luke hopes country fans will tune in and donate money to the fight against muscular dystrophy.

He says, "I hope that my segment and country music’s segment and the whole Opry piece really helps the telethon do what it’s supposed to do –- raise a lot of money and help kids.”
