Luke Bryan’s ‘Spring Break 6…Like We Ain’t Ever’ Debuts at No. 1
Luke Bryan is once again claiming the top spot on the charts. The Georgia native's latest spring break-themed digital EP, 'Spring Break 6...Like We Ain't Ever,' debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Country Albums chart.
Bryan, who returned to Spinnaker's Beach Club in Panama City, Fla. for a two-day appearance to celebrate the release of his sixth collection of beach-themed tunes, sold 74,296 copies, which also earned him the No. 2 spot Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart.
“I feel like year after year we get a little bit better at writing for this," he notes. "I think with these new songs I would be proud to put them on any album we release."
The married father of two is getting used to reigning the charts. His 2011 album, 'Tailgates & Tanlines,' and last year's 'Crash My Party,' both debuted at No. 1. But Bryan says that, in spite of his success, he doesn't focus on where his projects land after they are released.
“There’s always added pressure,” he tells The Boot, “but you just have to work harder ... At the end of the day, if it does better, it does better, if not, I’ve still got wonderful loyal fans out there that are going to be excited about hearing new music.”
Bryan is currently on his That's My Kinda Night Tour, which will wrap up in October. He will take a break from that to head to Las Vegas next month, where he and Blake Shelton will return as co-hosts of the 2014 ACM Awards. He is also nominated for three trophies, including Entertainer of the Year, which he currently holds.
