Luke Bryan has topped the Country Aircheck/Mediabase chart and made it a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard country chart with “Drink A Beer.” The song marks the ninth No. 1 of Luke’s career. Written by Chris Stapleton and Jim Beavers, the track has spent the last 11 weeks as a Top 5 download on Nielsen’s Country Digital Song chart, five of which were spent at No. 1.

“Drink A Beer” is the third consecutive No. 1 from Luke’s Crash My Party album which was certified platinum in just six weeks. The album debuted at No. 1 on both the Billboard 200 and Country sales charts with 527,783 units sold, making it the biggest sales debut for a country male artist since 2004. 

Luke is currently headlining his That’s My Kind of Night Tour which has sold out all dates on its first leg and will also include his first ever headlining stadium shows this summer. Luke will return as co-host of the ACM Awards alongside Blake Shelton, where he is also nominated for three awards, including Entertainer of the Year. The ACM Awards will air live from Las Vegas on CBS on April 6 at 8/7c.
