He's no quarterback, but Luke Bryan scored quite the touchdown on Saturday night.

The country star set the all-time record for ticket sales at Pittsburgh's Heinz Field, welcoming more than 50,000 enthusiastic fans who came out to show him some summer love.

Bryan, 37, was overwhelmed by the support. "Just had the most unbelievable night of my life," he said of the historic show, which featured appearances by Dierks Bentley and tourmates Cole Swindell and Lee Brice.
