Luke Bryan’s Spring Break…Here To Party Tops Billboard’s Country and Top 200 Sales Charts
March 14, 2013
NASHVILLE, TN – Country superstar and 2013 Academy of Country Music Awards show co-host Luke Bryan has topped the Billboard Country sales chart and earned his first #1 album on Billboard’s Top 200 chart with Spring Break…Here To Party, selling 149,515 units in its first week. This is the first full-length physical album released from Bryan’s five-year “Spring Break” series. The 14-track album features two new tracks as well as a collection of songs from his previously released digital “Spring Break” EPs – 2009’s Spring Break…With All My Friends, 2010’s Spring Break 2…Hangover Edition, 2011’s Spring Break 3…It’s A Shore Thing and last year’s Spring Break 4…Suntan City. Though the album didn’t include a radio single, Bryan did release a video for “Buzzkill,” one of the album’s new tracks, which can been seen here: http://vevo.ly/13vuu0o .
“I always have so much fun putting out new Spring Break music year after year,” says Bryan. “The whole idea behind the Spring Break music was that it was a way for me to give fans some new songs in between albums, party songs that would never make the mainstream albums. Here we are, five years later, and it’s crazy how that little idea has grown. It feels great to know that people are still having as much fun with it as I am!”
Luke took a short break from his headline tour, “Dirt Road Diaries Tour,” to celebrate the album’s release by once again performing at Spinnaker’s Beach Club in Panama City, FL last night and again tonight. Bryan’s sold-out “Dirt Road Diaries Tour” resumes with a show on March 14 at the Amphitheatre at the Wharf in Orange Beach, Alabama.
The ACM Entertainer Of The Year nominee will be featured on his upcoming CMT special, Luke Bryan: Spring Break….Here To Party which airs Sunday, March 17 at 2pm ET and GAC’s Top 20 Countdown on March 22 at 8pm ET.
