Luke Bryan, ‘Drunk on You’ Tops the Charts

Kudos to Luke Bryan, who has landed his fifth career No. 1 single with “Drunk on You.” This week, the tune topped both the Country Aircheck/Mediabase and Billboard singles charts, making it the second single from his album, Tailgates & Tanlines, to reach the top.

“From the time that we released Tailgates & Tanlines and were doing ‘Drunk on You’ live, we could really see a lot of people participating and doing the ‘boom booms’ and singing along,” Luke recalls. “To have it as be a No. 1 and my fifth No. 1, and watching it really be a huge song, is so gratifying and fun for me.”

While Luke is known for his songwriting abilities, this hit was the brainchild of tunesmiths Rodney Clawson, Chris Tompkins and Josh Kear. The Georgia native isn’t letting the fact that he didn’t pen the tune lessen the victory, though.

“‘Drunk On You’ was the song on the album that we really felt like was the cornerstone of the album,” he explains. “We were just making sure that we wanted to pick the right singles to get to the summertime and to get to ‘Drunk On You’.”

And pick the right songs they did, seeing as “Drunk On You” is also his third consecutive platinum-selling song, which spent four weeks as the No. 1 country digital seller.

Luke is currently vacationing with his family, but he’ll hit the road again July 6 for a show in St. Leonard, Md. Get a full list of his tour dates here.
