Over the past four years, Luke Bryan has established himself as a household name in the country music scene. A Capitol Records Nashville recording artist, the multi-talented Luke Bryan has released two albums I’ll Stay Me and Doin’ My Thing, and was honored by the Academy of Country Music (ACM) as its “Top New Solo Artist” and “Top New Artist” in 2010; moreover, he was nominated for the prestigious 2010 Country Music Association (CMA) award for “New Artist of the Year” losing to the Zac Brown Band.
His first album I’ll Stay Me, scored two Top 10 hits including his debut single “All My Friends Say” and his autobiographical “Country Man.”
In addition, Bryan had released an EP in 2009 on iTunes entitled Spring Break With All My Friends, which features Bryan’s “Sorority Girl.” Although “Sorority Girl” was never released as a radio single, it is one of Bryan’s finest vocal performances, due to its catchy and fun lyrics, and showcases Bryan’s abilit y to rock out and have a good time. “Sorority Girl” is a theme song for all sorority clubs in this country, as well as an uplifting song worthy of the repeat button.
In his latest album Doin’ My Thing, all three of its radio singles were Top 5 hits, where his vulnerable ballad “Do I,” which Bryan performs on piano, peaked at #2 on the Country Charts, and has been certified gold.
His second single from his sophomore album, the up-tempo ”Rain Is a Good Thing,” was his first chart-topping hit with country radio, and kept the #1 spot for two weeks. It is a song which highlights all the beneficial effects of rain, especially for the American farmers.
His third single “Someone Else Calling You Baby,” co-written by Bryan, was yet another #1 single for him.
Although both of his two studio albums peaked at #2 on the Billboard Country Charts, his latter Doin’ My Thing was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) in September of 2010.
His most recent album Tailgates & Tanlines peaked at #1 on the Billboard Country Charts.
In 2011, Bryan shows no signs of slowing down. He opened for country trio Rascal Flatts as part of their “Nothing Like This” tour, and opened for country music mega-star Tim McGraw as part of his “Emotional Traffic Tour,” along with The Band Perry.
