Luke Bryan Performs Two Sold Out Shows in Nashville
Luke Bryan had a weekend to remember. The Georgia native played before two sold-out crowds in his current hometown of Nashville as part of the final leg of his Dirt Road Diaries Tour.
Bryan played Friday and Saturday night (Oct. 18 and 19) at Music City’s Bridgestone Arena. While all shows on his current tour have sold out, tickets for these coveted concerts were gone in a record five minutes.
The ‘That’s My Kind of Night’ singer also had a few surprise guests, including Lady Antebellum‘s Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood, who joined Bryan for his single, ‘Do I,’ which the three men wrote together.
The 37-year-old had another reason to celebrate over the weekend. His label, Capitol Nashville, presented him with a platinum plaque, celebrating sales of one million albums in only six weeks for his latest record, ‘Crash My Party.’ The 13-track record debuted at No.1 on both the Billboard 200 and the country sales chart, selling 527,783 units in its first week. ‘Crash My Party’ was the biggest sales debut for a male artist since 2004, and the fourth highest album debut in all genres for 2013 so far.
Bryan will wrap up his Dirt Road Diaries Tour this week with three shows in Florida. He’ll enjoy a couple months off the road before he kicks off his That’s My Kind of Night tour on Jan. 16 in Columbus, Ohio, with Swindell and Lee Brice serving as his opening acts.
