Luke Bryan’s highly anticipated fourth studio album, Crash My Party, was released today. Crash My Party, which was announced in June, is the follow up to Bryan’s most successful album to date, tailgates & tanlines, which has been certified Double Platinum. An exclusive version of the album is available only at Target. You can find the album online via Target.
Crash My Party builds on the success of Bryan’s previous releases and proves that his rich musical talent mine has only begun to be tapped. In addition to tailgates & tanlines - which contains three back-to-back Platinum singles, was the 8th best-selling album of 2012 and has sold 7.2 million tracks - Crash My Party also releases on the heels of Luke’s most successful spring break series album, Spring Break…Here To Party, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart and is certified Gold.
The single and title cut, “Crash My Party”, was a multi-week No. 1 single. Full of playful longing and described by Bryan as “a great way to say, ‘come love me'”, the single has now sold a million copies since its release.
“I decided Crash My Party was perfect for this album because like the song, the album goes beyond the literal meaning of the title,” says Bryan. “The song isn’t what you think it is, it is unexpected, and I think in the same way fans will definitely hear some surprises on my new album. It still reflects my sound but you will get to hear a little bit deeper, different side to me musically as well.”
Bryan’s recent Academy of Country Music Award wins for Entertainer of the Year and Vocal Event (“Only Way I Know”) with Eric Church and Jason Aldean, along with his first-time ACM hosting duty with Blake Shelton, are just a few of the career highlights Luke has enjoyed lately. Additional accolades include multi-Platinum album sales, back-to-back #1 singles and his first #1 album debut. His spring break shows in Panama City Beach, Florida this past March brought in 120,000 fans during the two-day concert event and his performance at the Houston Rodeo was the second largest attendance in the rodeo’s history with 75,000 fans.
Luke has placed a total of six career singles at #1 and was named the #1 Artist of 2012 and #1 Male Artist of 2012 by Country Aircheck. Billboard named tailgates & tanlines the #2 Country Album and the #3 Country Artist Album of 2012 and claimed Luke as the #3 Top Country Artist of the Year. Also in 2012, Luke took home 11 music awards, including a record nine wins at the American Country Awards as well as his first American Music Award.
