For the next series of the long-running TV singing competition, producers have announced "Idol Across America" - a live virtual audition tour visiting all 50 states to help them search for acts as the crisis continues - and Luke has confirmed he's likely to return for the live shows.
"We're still in the meticulous negotiations, but things are looking positive for that and I'm very excited about it," he tells HuffPostUK.
The star has been keeping busy during the pandemic, and in addition to releasing his new album, "Born Here Live Here Die Here", he has been using the time to embrace the outdoor lifestyle.
"Well, my wife and I, we're heading to South Carolina in a little bit and I just got to get the album out, my nine-year-old, he turned 10 on 8 August, and I just still go outside, catch some fish, spend some time outdoors, and I've got to get all of this sweetcorn out of the field," he adds.
Bryan recently admitted dad knows best after his father warned him against planting acres of the crop, calling Luke "an idiot" and insisting he wouldn't "know what to do with that much sweetcorn."
