Luke Bryan’s ‘Fast’ Makes Country Airplay Chart History
It’s been a big few days for Luke Bryan: He once again co-hosted the ACM Awards on Sunday night (April 2), and on Monday morning (April 3), he made history with his newest single, “Fast.”
Bryan’s latest hit from his newest album, Kill the Lights, makes the country superstar the only person to earn six No. 1 singles from a single album on Billboard‘s Country Airplay chart; it’s the most chart-topping songs from one album that any artist has had in the chart’s 27-year history. The chart’s previous record for No. 1 songs from a single album was five — also held by Bryan, with his 2011 album Tailgates & Tanlines.
Bryan’s album Kill the Lights debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s all-genre Top 200 chart following its release in August of 2015; it was the highest-debuting country album on that chart since Bryan’s own Crash My Party debuted in its top spot in 2013. Kill the Lights‘ other No. 1 singles include “Move;” “Huntin, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day;” “Home Alone Tonight,” a duet with Karen Fairchild of Little Big Town; “Strip It Down” and “Kick the Dust Up.”
Overall, “Fast” is Bryan’s 18th No. 1 single. The song has also landed at No. 1 on the Country Aircheck chart.
In early May, Bryan will begin his summertime Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day Tour. Additionally, he has headlining sets at the 2017 Tortuga Music Festival and WE Fest 2017 on his calendar. More information about Bryan, including his upcoming tour dates, can be found on his official website.
