Luke Bryan's 'Crash My Party' Produces Record-Tying Fifth No. 1 on Country Airplay Chart
As "I See You" steps 2-1, Luke Bryan's Crash My Party album yields its fifth No. 1 on Billboard's Country Airplay chart, becoming just the third set in the tally's 25-year history to accomplish the vaunted feat.
His new No. 1, his 11th overall on the Nielsen Music-based Country Airplay chart, follows the album's first four leaders: the title track (July 2013); "Drink a Beer" (February 2014); "Play It Again" (May 2014); and "Roller Coaster" (October 2014). (Second single "That's My Kind of Night" just missed the summit, having peaked at No. 2 in November 2013.)
Dating to the chart's Jan. 20, 1990 launch, the other two albums to spin off five Country Airplay No. 1s apiece are Brad Paisley's 5th Gear (2007-08) and Blake Shelton's Based On a True Story… (2013-14).
Crash My Party has sold 2.4 million copies in the U.S. and generated 9 million in track sales through the week ending Jan. 25. As previously reported, "I See You" rose to the top of the airplay/sales/streaming-based Hot Country Songs chart last week, becoming the fourth No. 1 on the list from the album.
