Fresh from hosting the 52nd Annual Academy of Country Music Awards on April 2, Luke Bryan is making history. His current single, “Fast” hit the top spot on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, making that Luke’s sixth single to go No. 1 from his Kill The Lights album.
“Fast,” written by Luke, Rodney Clawson and Luke Laird, is Luke’s 18th No. 1 hit overall.
Here’s where the making history comes in. Luke is the only artist, in the 27-year history of the Billboard chart, to have six singles from one album make it to the top of the chart. His preceding No. 1’s from Kill The Lights include, “Kick The Dust Up,” “Strip It Down,” “Home Alone Tonight,” “Huntin’ Fishin’ & Lovin’ Everyday” and “Move.
The Georgia native broke his previous record of having five singles from his last album, tailgates & tanlines, reach the top.
Next up for Luke, he’ll be kicking off his Huntin’ Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day Tour, featuring Brett Eldredge, on May 5-6 at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. Lauren Alaina, Craig Campbell, Adam Craig, Seth Ennis and Granger Smith will also join the tour for various dates.
