Born In: Leesburg, Georgia, United States
Luke Bryan is one of the most renowned singers and songwriters of the this generation. Starting his musical career in the mid-2000s (it was in 2007 that he released his debut album), Bryan did not take long to establish a strong foothold in the music industry. His debut came with his single ‘All My Friends Say’ which was well-received by the audience. He followed it up with his debut studio album ‘I’ll Stay Me.’ After releasing a couple of albums and singles, Bryan tasted worldwide success with his third studio album ‘Tailgates & Tanlines.’ The album peaked at number one on ‘Top Country Albums’ chart and number two on the ‘Billboard 200’ chart. This was the beginning of his success story which continued with the release of his other two albums, ‘Crash My Party’ and ‘Kill the Lights.’ What’s more, Bryan became the only country music artist to achieve six number one singles from one album in the history of ‘Billboard Country Airplay’ chart. Though Bryan has achieved much of his fame as a country musician and singer, it would be wrong to say that he has limited himself to the genre. Bryan has explored other genres like alternative rock as well. He has frequently incorporated elements of other music genres into his music. His journey as a musician and singer has been an inspiring one. Currently, he has sold more than seven million albums, 27 million tracks, and has 16 No.1 hits and back-to-back double-platinum albums.
