Country star Luke Bryan slapped a "rude" fan during a concert in Tennessee on Wednesday (30Nov16).

10th Annual ACM Honors

The Crash My Party singer was performing at Charlie Daniels' 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena when he became involved in an altercation with an audience member.

The 40-year-old was in the middle of his song Move when he jumped off stage, slapped the man on the side of his face, and then returned to performing.

A statement from Bryan's team claims the concertgoer was taunting Bryan.

"A man in the front row was making crude hand gestures toward Luke during his performance," it reads. "It was insulting not only to him, but more importantly to the men, women and families sitting around him, who were there to support and celebrate Charlie Daniels and the efforts of raising money for the military veterans - some of who were in the audience.

"The concert security personnel saw the man's disruptive actions of the event and he was escorted out."
