Luke Bryan definitely served up a rousing rendition of the National Anthem during Tuesday night's MLB All-Star game.
But the country crooner also got a lot of attention for what he seemed to be doing during it—namely, reading some of the lyrics to the song off his hand.
Sure enough, the "Drunk on You" singer copped to such speculation this morning.
"I had a few key words written down to insure myself that I wouldn't mess up," Bryan tweeted. "I just wanted to do my best. I promise it was from the heart."
He went on to "sincerely apologize" to anyone who may have been offended by his actions, adding: "Anytime I sing the anthem it is an honor and my heart beats out of my chest."
But it appears that most of his fans didn't seem to mind that he needed a cheat sheet.
"Better to write them down than butcher the song," wrote one fan to Bryan. "You were great. love you!"
