It took 20 years for Rodney Crowell’s record of five #1 singles from a single album (From 1988's Diamonds and Dirt) to hit #1 on the Billboard Country Airplay charts when Brad Paisley’s 5th Gear album produced five Billboard chart-toppers in 2007-2008. Nearly a decade after Brad Paisley tied Rodney Crowell, the record has changed. With the #1 status of “Fast,” Luke Bryan has surpassed both these stars with 6 chart-topping singles from his current album Kill The Lights.
The chart-topping singles from Kill The Lights are “Kick The Dust Up,” “Strip It Down,” “Home Alone Tonight,” “Huntin’ Fishin’ And Lovin’ Every Day,” “Move,” and “Fast.” “Fast,” written by Luke, Rodney Clawson and Luke Laird, also becomes his 18th career No. 1 single.
Luke, who has been working on new music, could still release a seventh single from the album to try and keep the streak going but that remains to be seen. While we had thought that Keith Urban could take a shot at tying and potentially breaking his new record with songs off of Ripcord, Keith’s first single from that record, “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16,” was a Mediabase #1 hit only.
While we wait for Luke’s next hit song to chart, we have his Huntin’ Fishin’ And Lovin’ Every Day Tour to look forward to. It kicks off May 5 and 6th in Nashville.
