Luke Bryan appeared onstage at the 2018 ACM Awards on Sunday evening (April 15) for an uplifting performance of his current single, "Most People Are Good." The song comes from his 2017 studio album What Makes You Country.

Reba McEntire introduced Bryan, saying he would be performing "Most People Are Good." She added, "And he's great!"

He gave an earnest performance of the song as he sang, "I believe most people are good / And most mamas oughta qualify for sainthood / I believe most Friday nights / Look better under neon or stadium lights / I believe you love who you love / Ain't nothin' you should ever be ashamed of / I believe this world ain't half as bad as it looks / I believe most people are good."

The meaning of the song took on particular resonance during the ceremony, following the evening's tribute performance to the victims of the Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting.

Bryan is up for Entertainer of the Year at the 2018 ACM Awards, running against reigning award winner Jason Aldean, as well as Garth Brooks, Chris Stapleton and Keith Urban. He previously won the award in 2015.
