Look out, Taylor Swift. Luke Bryan might just be Nashville’s next big star to watch. Today, Capitol Records Nashville announced that the rising star’s third album, ‘Tailgates & Tanlines,’ hit platinum status by selling one million copies.

Given the success of two of the album’s platinum singles ‘Country Girl (Shake It for Me)’ and ‘I Don’t Want This Night to End,’ it’s no surprise that copies of ‘Tailgates & Tanlines’ have been flying off of the shelves for the past few months.

The album debuted in August with sales of 145,000 units in the first week. It doesn’t look like Bryan has plans to pause and enjoy his album’s success — in fact, he is pushing forward to release new material. Bryan recently debuted a new EP, ‘Spring Break 4…Suntan City,’ which snagged the No. 2 spot on the Billboard Country Albums chart. He followed up the release with a Spring Break performance at Spinnaker’s in Panama City Beach, drawing a massive crowd of 80,000 people to hear him play.

The ‘I Don’t Want This Night to End’ singer has also had a busy month performing at the American Country Music Awards and participating in the ‘ACM Presents: Lionel Richie and Friends — In Concert’ taping, which aired this past Friday (April 13) on CBS.

The rising country music star is headlining some of his own dates this summer, but he is currently on the road with Jason Aldean on the 2012 leg of his My Kinda Party Tour.
