A pop-country hunk topped international boy bands, music icons and pro wrestling to be Ticketmaster's most-searched subject of 2014. The Live Nation ticket retailer places Luke Bryan as being the search bar's most frequent guest, above One Direction, Garth Brooks, Beyonce and World Wrestling Entertainment.

Bryan wrapped the third leg of his That's My Kind of Night Tour in late October. It revs up again in February before closing out in Ireland in March.

Other sought-after artists included 5 Seconds of Summer, the (fully) reunited Fleetwood Mac and Billy Joel, who has continued his popular residency at NYC's Madison Square Garden along with select arena dates around the country.
