Luke Bryan has been all over the place promoting his new album, Crash My Party. His hard work is paying off with first day sales numbers predicted to nearly triple those of his 2011 album, tailgates & tanlines. Luke is humbled by the overwhelming fan response. Read our review of Crash My Party >>
“I’ve never been this excited about an album roll-out, because everybody’s been winking at me and grinning and everybody from my record label and just all across the board,” Luke said. “And then to start hearing first day sales numbers, and it’s truly humbling and it’s just an amazing emotion. I’m running on adrenaline.”
Album sales wasn’t the only good news Luke celebrated last week. A second Nashville show was added after his first Dirt Road Diaries Tour date, set for October 18 at Bridgestone Arena, sold out in minutes. The October 19 date went on sale Friday and sold out in under five minutes.
“I have had the most amazing week launching the new album,” Luke said. “The overwhelming response of my fans to this new music and to the ‘Dirt Road Diaries Tour’ has blown me away. We are definitely going to have a party in Nashville in October!”
Dierks Bentley will join the lineup that already includes Thompson Square and Florida Georgia Line. Fans even camped outside the arena for their chance at scoring tickets. Once Luke heard fans were sleeping on the sidewalk ahead of the official on sale date, he had coffee and donuts sent to them as a thank you.
