This week, Country star Luke Bryan returns to the top of the country radio chart for the fourth time with his #1 hit single, “I Don’t Want This Night to End.” The song, which is his fastest-rising single to date, has also sold over 1 million downloads. Bryan co-wrote the tune with fellow Georgians Rhett Akins, Dallas Davidson and Ben Hayslip.
Additionally, the song has broken the record for the highest audience of any #1 single this year with 40 million audience impressions this week. “I Don’t Want This Night To End” follows his Platinum smash hit, “Country Girl (Shake It For Me),” both from his current Gold-selling album, tailgates & tanlines.
“I thought ‘Country Girl (Shake It For Me)’ was going to be hard to beat in my shows but watching over 16,000 people jumping with their hands in the air last night just blew me away,” said Luke, who spent the past weekend performing for sold-out crowds during the kick off of Jason Aldean’s 2012 My Kinda Party Tour. “Thank you to radio and the country music fans for continuing to let me have fun with my music. I’m having a blast!”
“I Don’t Want This Night To End,” is also featured on the latest installment of the NOW music series, NOW 41, in stores February 7th, 2012. Luke joins stars such as Adele, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Coldplay, LMFAO, and others on the compilation CD.
