Luke Bryan To Release Fourth Studio Album Crash My Party On August 13
Nashville – (June 26, 2013) Luke Bryan has announced the title of his highly anticipated forthcoming album, Crash My Party, which will be in stores on August 13. Bryan revealed the title and cover of the album to his fans yesterday on his official website by challenging them to “uncover” tiles that were hiding the album cover image by tweeting the hashtag #CrashMyParty. Over 4,000 tweets were sent within 30 minutes, making #CrashMyParty trend nationwide. Crash My Party, named after the project’s lead single, is produced by Jeff Stevens, who has produced all of Luke’s previous records.
“I decided Crash My Party was perfect for this album because like the song, the album goes beyond the literal meaning of the title,” says Bryan. “The song isn't what you think it is, it is unexpected, and I think in the same way fans will definitely hear some surprises on my new album. It still reflects my sound but you will get to hear a little bit deeper, different side to me musically as well.”
Crash My Party is the follow-up to Luke’s most successful album to date tailgates & tanlines, which has now been certified Double Platinum. tailgates & tanlines contains three back-to-back Platinum singles, was the 8th best-selling album of 2012 and has sold 7.2 million tracks. Crash My Party also releases on the heels of Luke’s most successful spring break series album, Spring Break…Here To Party, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart and is certified Gold.
Luke’s recent Academy of Country Music Award wins for Entertainer of the Year and Vocal Event (“Only Way I Know”) with Eric Church and Jason Aldean, along with his first-time ACM hosting duty with Blake Shelton, are just a few of the career highlights Luke has enjoyed lately. Additional accolades include multi-Platinum albums sales, back-to-back #1 singles and his first #1 album debut. His spring break shows in Panama City Beach, Florida this past March brought in 120,000 fans during the two-day concert event and his performance at the Houston Rodeo was the second largest attendance in the rodeo’s history with 75,000 fans.
