Big congrats to the folks at CAPITOL/NASHVILLE as LUKE BRYAN’s 3rd studio album, “Tailgates & Tanlines,” tops the Country Sales Chart this week with 145,296 units. That number is a good for a #2 position on the SOUNDSCAN Top-200. The album’s lead single, “Country Girl (Shake It For Me)” has sold over 1 million downloads and is his best-selling single to date.
“I’m very proud of this album, and to have fans connect with the music in this way is exciting and really humbling,”said BRYAN. “When I was writing and recording this project, I wanted to make an album which made people forget about all the other things in their lives that might stress them out and just have fun! And to have this kind of response from my fans makes me feel like that goal was accomplished.”
