Country superstar Luke Bryan has made history on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. No artist had ever previously made simultaneous debuts in the top five of that 51-year-old survey, but Bryan does so on the new chart. The Capitol Nashville artist enters at No. 1 with ‘Spring Break…Checkin’ Out’ and No. 5 with the exhaustively-titled ‘Spring Break…The Set List: The Complete Spring Break Collection ZinePak.’
‘Checkin’ Out’ sold 89,000 copies to make its chart-topping debut, according to Nielsen Music. It’s Bryan’s fifth No. 1 on the country chart, a sequence that began with ‘Tailgates & Tanlines’ in 2011. It continued with ‘Spring Break…Here To Party’ in 2013, a 13-week run at the top with ‘Crash My Party’ in 2014 and last year’s EP ‘Spring Break 6…Like We Ain’t Never.’
Bryan recently returned home from his first European performances at the C2C Country to Country Festival in London, Dublin, Oslo and Stockholm. He’s now enjoying a new hit single in the US, as ‘Games,’ from the ‘Checkin’ Out’ album and written by the star with Nashville composer Ashley Gorley, climbs 29-23 on this week’s Hot Country Songs chart.
Bryan’s ‘Crash My Party’ album produced no fewer than four No. 1s on Hot Country Songs, with ‘That’s My Kind Of Night,’ ‘Drink A Beer,’ ‘Play It Again’ and ‘I See You.’
