Capitol recording artist Luke Bryan, who recently took home two trophies at the Billboard Music Awards, takes the top spot at country radio with “Play It Again,” making this his tenth career No. 1 single. The multi-week chart-topper, written by Ashley Gorley and Dallas Davidson, is his fourth consecutive No. 1 single from Crash My Party, which was recently named Top Country Album at the Billboard Awards earlier this month.
Luke also makes Billboard chart history by reaching the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart with “Play It Again” and “This Is How We Roll” with Florida Georgia Line claiming the No. 2 spot. Luke becomes the first artist to ever hold the two top positions since the chart began in 1990.
Additional news out this week finds Luke as the cover subject of People Country’s “Sexiest Men” special issue. The cover, shot in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. in April, will be available on newsstands this week. This weekend, Luke will resume his “That’s My Kind of Night Tour” with shows in Charlotte, N.C., Washington, D.C. and Holmdel, N.J. This summer, Luke’s tour will include his first-ever headline stadium shows – June 21 at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Penn., August 15 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Penn. and on August 31 at Soldier Field in Chicago, Ill.
