‘Catch of the Day’ – Luke Bryan – “Light It Up” [AUDIO]
Today we feature an artist whose new single broke so fast, we almost didn't have time to feature it. An artist who has seen his last 15 singles hit the #1 spot on the Country Singles chart, including an unbelievable 6 from each of his last two albums and doesn't include the 3 #1s he has scored as a guest or featured artist.
Luke Bryan may just be the country music equivalent of King Midas; everything he touches turns to gold. Or hits #1. Or both. He was signed by a publishing house soon after his 2006 arrival, writing Billy Currington's #1 hit "Good Directions" and tracks for other Nashville artists. In 2006 he signed with Capitol Records Nashville, releasing his debut album I'll Stay Me in 2007. Its the only of Bryan's 5 studio albums to not reach #1 and receive platinum certification, though the RIAA did certify the album gold for sales of over 500,000 copies. It is also the only of Bryan's albums to not produce a #1 hit.
But Bryan made up for that lost time starting with his second album 2009's Doin' My Thing. The album was certified platinum, reached #1 on the album chart and also featured Bryan's first two #1 hits "Rain Is A Good Thing", and "Someone Else Calling You Baby". Those would be the start of a run of 17 #1 hits in 18 singles, including his past 15 singles in a row, all off of just 3 albums. In addition to the 5 albums, Bryan has released 7 Spring Break EPs, a compilation box set of those yearly releases and in 2016 celebrated his annual
Farm Tour by releasing a live EP of that benefit tour. Everyone of Bryan's 22 singles has been awarded a minimum of gold certification, and his tours continue to be in the best selling concerts across all genres annually.
Bryan continues to make history, his last 2 album's, 2013's Crash My Party and 2015's Kill The Lights have each produced 6 #1 hits. Crash My Party became the first to score as many as 6 on any Billboard chart, while Kill The Lights became the first album to score 6 number 1's on the Country Airplay chart, making all 6 "radio" #1s. Bryan has announced a new album to released in November, and we have the lead single from album #6 in our spotlight today.
