Luke Bryan is set to perform at the Super Bowl on Feb. 5.

Bryan is performing "The Star-Spangled Banner" at Super Bowl LI, as confirmed by the singer himself on Sunday.

"I said, 'Hell yes, I'll do it!'" Bryan told People. "Is the anthem challenging? Yes. Is it nerve-wracking? Yes. But I moved to Nashville to follow my dreams and singing the national anthem on that stage doesn't get any bigger."

Bryan will kick off the Super Bowl with the National Anthem at 6:30 p.m. ET.

"I never served in the military - that's something I wish I had had the opportunity to do, but I feel like this is my way of honoring my country. It's a little chance to serve," Bryan said.

So is Bryan rooting for the New England Patriots or the Atlanta Falcons in the Super Bowl?

"[I have] to lean toward my Georgia roots," he admitted. "I'm a huge Atlanta Falcons fan and it would be amazing if my Falcons make it." However, he said, "I'll be focused on the anthem. And once I walk off that field and shake off that pressure, I'll be ready to enjoy some football."

Lady Gaga is set to headline the Super Bowl halftime show this year, having performed the National Anthem at last year's Super Bowl. Taylor Swift is set to perform the night before the Super Bowl.

There have been many rumors about what Gaga will do at the Super Bowl. The singer rose to fame through her outrageous outfits and stunts, but in recent years she has toned things down overall.

There is speculation that Gaga might be performing at some point on the roof of the Super Bowl. "They're writing up multiple plans about how to safely get her on the roof, including potentially [cutting] a hole in the ceiling of the dome," a source told PageSix recently. Gaga has not commented on any rumors about her plans.
