Luke Bryan is unstoppable.

He’s the reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year. He’s selling out shows on tour in a matter of minutes. And he also has a second number one album this week with Crash My Party!

Not only is Crash My Party number one on the Billboard 200 chart, it is the biggest selling week by a male country artist since Tim McGraw in 2004. Bryan’s album debuted with nearly 528,000 units sold according to Nielsen SoundScan.

 McGraw was the last male country artist to sell more albums in a week with 766,000 copies moved for Live Like You Were Dying.

 

Luke had this to share via his website in response to the major news:

I’ve never been this excited about an album that I have put out, and the response I have gotten is really humbling and mind-blowing to me. I am lucky to have some of the best fans in the world, and I am happy to see them enjoying this album as much as I do. I’m just so thankful for my fans and for Country radio for the amazing support.

Crash My Party follows the country superstar’s previous 2013 chart-topper, Spring Break . . . Here to Party, and his double-Platinum 2011 Tailgates & Tanlines.

The album’s title track is a multi-week number one hit! “Crash My Party” recently set a Billboard record as the largest one-week audience since 2005 with 45.5 million listeners and has sold 1.2 million downloads. Bryan’s new single, “That’s My Kinda Night,” is also the highest-debuting single of his career.

It’s safe to say that Luke Bryan’s career is going pretty well.

Congratulations to Luke on all of his success! We are very happy for you!
