“Country” is still cool: Luke Bryan arrives at #1 on the all-genre album chart


ABC/Image Group LALuke Bryan reigns on both the all-genre Billboard 200 this week and the country albums chart as well, as What Makes You Country debuts at #1.

This is Luke’s third record in a row to emerge at the top of the main tally, and his fifth to bow at #1 on the country chart.  

“So much thought goes into creating new music,” Luke says, “and I really try to write and find songs that I feel are staying true to me while staying fresh and fun. I try and imagine people singing along in their cars or with me at my shows.”

He adds, “To have What Makes You Country go #1 is so exciting and rewarding for me, my team and my fans. It drives me to keep working harder and growing!”  

Thursday, you can catch Luke doing his version of “O Holy Night” on CMA Country Christmas, which starts at 9 p.m. ET on ABC. Then, the day after Christmas, he pays tribute to fellow American Idol judge Lionel Richie on the 40th Annual Kennedy Center Honors at 9 p.m. ET on CBS.
