  • Luke Bryan

    Luke Bryan is one of the most renowned singers and songwriters of the current generation who have become a rage with his sensational music and melodies. Starting his career in music officially late (it was in 2007 that he made his plunge into the industry), Bryan did not take long to establish a strong foothold in the music scene. His debut came with his single ˜All My Friends Say' which was outstandingly received by the audience. He followed it up with his debut studio album ˜I'll Stay Me'. A couple of albums and singles old, Bryan first tasted worldwide success with his third studio album ˜Tailgates & Tanlines'. The album peaked at number one on the Top Country Albums chart and number two on the Billboard 200 chart. This was the beginning of his success story which continued to follow as his other two albums ˜Crash My Party' and ˜Kill the Lights' became highpoints of his career. What's more, Bryan became the only country music artist to achieve six number one singles from one album in the history of the Billboard Country Airplay chart. Though Bryan has achieved much of his fame as a country musician and singer, it would be wrong to say that he has limited himself to it. Bryan has explored other genres like alternative rock as well. He has frequently incorporated elements of other music genres into his music. His journey as a musician and singer has been an inspiring one. Currently, he has sold more than seven million albums, 27 million tracks and has 16 No. 1 hits and back-to-back double-platinum albums.
