Luke Bryan’s Final Spring Break Release Debuts at No. 1
... Checkin' Out includes five new songs, written by Bryan, along with all six songs from 2014's Spring Break EP, Like We Ain’t Ever.
“My fans have been so wonderful to embrace these special Spring Break albums over the last seven years,” Bryan says. “We’ve created a lot of amazing memories writing these songs and performing them at the beach shows in Florida. Those concerts are among the most enjoyable of my career!”
Bryan recently released a video for "Spring Breakdown," one of ... Checkin' Out's new songs. The video shows aerial views of the massive crowds at Bryan's yearly Spring Break shows, along with clips of him performing and fans enjoying the concerts.
... Checkin' Out is Bryan's second consecutive Spring Break release to debut at No. 1; the record also landed at No. 3 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart. Combined, all of his Spring Break projects have sold more than 1.2 million copies.
The record's release coincided with Bryan's final Spring Break shows, which he has held at Spinnaker Beach Club in Panama City, Fla., every year since 2009. But even though his Spring Break tradition is ending, the "I See You" singer doesn't show any signs of slowing down anytime soon: In a few weeks (April 19), Bryan will return to co-host the 2015 ACM Awards with his good friend Blake Shelton. Bryan is nominated for four trophies at the show -- including the night's highest honor, Entertainer of the Year -- and will also perform during the event.
Then, on May 8, Bryan will kick off his 2015 Kick the Dust Up Tour, with Randy Houser and Dustin Lynch joining him as opening acts for the trek. He'll also link up with Florida Georgia Line and Thomas Rhett for select stadium shows. A complete list of Bryan's upcoming shows is available on his website.
