SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – Savannah is “Like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.”

On Tuesday, country music singer Luke Bryan was seen filming in Savannah’s Chippewa Square, famous for hosting Forrest Gump’s bus bench in the 1994 film.

Bryan has been in town this week filming for the 18th season of “American Idol.” The singer is one of the judges, along with Katy Perry and Lionel Richie.

It’s likely he was filming a spot for the show, which held auditions in the Hostess City on Monday and Tuesday.

Bryan is no stranger to the Coastal Empire. He graduated in 1999 from Georgia Southern University in Statesboro where he joined the Sigma Chi Fraternity.

In years past, he has also brought his “Farm Tour” to the area.
