Luke Bryan Celebrates Tenth No. 1
Luke Bryan must be getting used to being at the top of the charts. The Georgia native has scored his tenth No. 1 hit with his latest single, 'Play It Again.'
The song is the fourth single from Bryan's No. 1, platinum-selling album, 'Crash My Party,' which also spawned the chart-topping singles 'That's My Kind of Night,' 'Drink a Beer' and the album's title track. But while Bryan has had hit after hit since his debut album, 'I'll Stay Me,' was released in 2007, he says he knew he was taking a gamble with his latest set of tunes.
“The guitars hit harder and are a little more in-your-face,” he tells The Boot. “We’ve got some drum stuff going on that’s quite different. It’s almost like a more hip-hoppy kind of drum beat, but at the end of the day I’m singing, so there you go. I’ve got some fun beats and the lyrics are very country in a lot of this stuff, too.”
Bryan also made Billboard chart history by also taking over the No. 2 spot, since he is featured in Florida Georgia Line's hit, 'This Is How We Roll,' which falls in line right behind Bryan's hit. It marks the first time an artist has ever held the top two spots since the chart began in 1990.
The tunesmith will continue his That's My Kind of Night Tour this week with shows in North Carolina, Virginia and New Jersey. His summer schedule also includes his first-ever stadium shows in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Chicago, as well as a second sold-out show at Madison Square Gardens in New York City.
