For those of you who missed it, Luke Bryan was named Entertainer of The Year at the 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday.  And if you don’t think that it’s a big deal for an entertainer then read what Luke had to say.  “You know, your life flashes before you,” Bryan, who also served as the Las Vegas event’s co-host, with Blake Shelton, tells PEOPLE. “Everything-the years to get there, the loading up amps in trucks, and even the move to Nashville and then driving back to Georgia and playing little bars and then the record deal and watching your fan base grow and watching people start to love what you do.” Luke went on to say: “It all flashes before you. You see all that and you want to say and thank everybody. And you think of all the sacrifices-I got 30 to 40 people on the road with me and they’re gone from their families too, and they are celebrating, too.”  “I just feel I’m blessed and lucky to be here. At any point in my life, one thing could have sent me down another path, and I wouldn’t have moved to Nashville. So every second in this business, I’m going to take it with a smile and enjoy it.” ‘Wow.’ It’s crazy. My whole family feels really blessed.”
