On Tuesday, August 13, Luke Bryan released his latest album titled Crash my Party. His album titled single has already been climbing The charts, including Hot Country Songs which had peaked at No. 2 and according to Billboard's website, Bryan's latest album is set to crash in at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart next week. Bryan's latest single from the newly released album is titled "That's My Kind of Night." This single climbed 15 spots in one week, and we should expect to see it continually rise higher on the charts.
On Wednesday, I had the privilege and honor of sitting alongside approximately 100 other country music and Bryan fans at the iHeartRadio Theatre in NYC for a 30-minute Q&A and album listening party. When asked how he felt about the latest album and what makes it different from his prior album Tailgates & Tanlines he specifically spoke of time. With Tailgates & Tanlines Bryan was just coming off a tour trying to record vocals in a couple of days but with his latest album Crash My Party he had the whole month of November to focus on the recording and get the best vocals he could.
Bryan said, "If I came into the studio and wasn't feeling it that day, I went home and waited until I felt like I was singing better." He also credited the Nashville Songwriters with vying to get on this album coming in with such great songs for him to record. He joked in saying that with the prior album, “I had to write all my own stuff since I wasn’t sure anyone wanted to be on my album!”
Bryan gave the audience and the iHeartRadio listeners a live acoustic mini set of three of his most infamous songs from his Tailgates & Tanlines album, including "I Don't Want This Night to End," "Country Girl (Shake It For Me)" and "Drunk on You." If you missed the broadcast, fear not, as you can check it out below.
Bryan does not disappoint with his latest album Crash My Party. He said, "I've never been more proud of something" when talking about this album and I concur. It's a fantastic album that I am the proud owner of adding to my collection of top country albums and artists. I did not think he could follow up such a fantastic and artistically sound Tailgates &Tanlines but I was proven wrong. You can download his latest album on iTunes or go to your local music store and buy his album.
If you buy it in Target, you get four bonus tracks, including "You're Momma Should've Named You Whiskey" featuring Jason Aldean.
