Luke Bryan’s Tailgates & Tanlines soared to the top of the Billboard Country Albums chart this week and landed at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. While the whole world seems to be getting hip to Luke’s country lifestyle, the singer is simply being himself and singing about what he knows. “I mean so many times in college, you know we had big field parties, and everybody—and then behind my fraternity house in college, we would lay the tailgate down and just party in the backyard with our trucks—lot of smiles kinda come up on your face when you start talking memories of trucks and stuff.” The album sold over 145-thousand copies in its first week, edging out Eric Church’s Chief to become the second highest debut for a country album this year behind Brad Paisley’s This Is Country Music. "Country Girl (Shake It For Me)" has sold more than one million downloads and is his best-selling single to date.
