Luke Bryan’s New Album Debuts at #1
Luke Bryan is having one heck of a summer! And today, he learned that his new album, 'Crash My Party' is the number 1 selling album in America!
'Crash My Party' sold almost 528,000 copies during its first week.
That total is the third highest of the year, behind Justin Timberlake's 'The 20/20 Experience' and Jay Z's 'Magna Carta … Holy Grail.'
According to Taste of Country,
"Billboard reports that Bryan and Taylor Swift are the only singers to sell a half million copies of an album since 2008. Swift has done it three times."
That's some pretty big shoes to fill, but I'm sure Luke Bryan is one happy fella today!
Taste of Country also said,
"The last male country singer to release an album and find more commercial success was Tim McGraw. In 2004, ‘Live Like You Were Dying’ sold 766,000."
Now that's just crazy! Congratulations Luke Bryan!
