Bryan parties to the top

Thursday, March 19, 2015 – Luke Bryan has the top selling country disc on the Billboard Country Albums disc for the week ending March 28 with his final spring break EP, "Spring Break...Checkin' Out." Bryan took over the top spot from Sam Hunts "Montevallo," which fell to second. Hunt did lead the songs chart with "Take Your Time" still atop.

Shania Twain was third with "Still the One: Live From Las Vegas." Jason Aldean held fourth with "Old Boots, New Dirt." Bryan also debuted in fifth with "Spring Break...The Set List: The Complete Spring Break Collection ZinePack," which includes all of Bryan's seventh spring break releases.

Eli Young Band debuted in 11th with its "Turn It On EP." Bryan's current full-length, "Crash My Party," was 12th. Brantley Gilbert was at 16, up 3, with "Just As I Am."

On the songs chart, Zac Brown Band was second with "Homegrown." Cole Swindell held fourth with "Ain't Worth the Whiskey," one ahead of Brett Eldredge's "Mean to Me." Miranda Lambert was a huge mover with "Little Red Wagon" in fifth, up 12. Billy Currington's latest, "Don't It," was up 4 to 16. Jake Owen was at 19 with "What We Ain't Got," marking his debut. Bryan was at 23 with "Games," up 6.

Punch Brothers led the Bluegrass Albums chart again with "The Phosphorescent Blues." Robert Earl Keen held second with "Happy Prisoner: The Bluegrass Sessions." The Earls of Leicester were third with their self-titled disc, up four. Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn were fourth again with their self-titled debut. "Ralph Stanley & Friends: Man of Constant Sorrow" was fifth. Nu-Blue debuted in sixth with "All the Way."

On the overall top 200, Bryan was 3rd, Hunt 15th, Florida Georgia Line 34th with "Anything Goes," Carrie Underwood 35th with "Greatest Hits: Decade #1" and Jason Aldean 37th with "Old Boots, New Dirt." The top 200 and Hot Country Albums chart use different criteria. Twain, for example, was 55th on the top 200 chart.

The Deluxe edition of his seventh album "Born Here, Live Here, Die Here" was born out of the pandemic tour stoppage. It includes six new songs and increases the run time to 54 minutes.

CD review - Born Here, Live Here, Die Here After taking in Luke Bryan's "Born Here Live Here Die Here," the listener will never guess this full length was released during a pandemic. Maybe that's a good thing. After all, we might need a diversion from the international health crisis now and then. The release opens with "Knockin' Boots," which is how modern cowboys describe sexual intercourse. A few songs later, Bryan gives us the drinking song (and single) "One Margarita." In between, "What ...
CD review - What Makes You Country Luke Bryan aims to please often, and that rarely goes unpunished. The Georgia native has a strong voice, some songwriting skill and even legitimate farming cred. But Bryan still gets pegged as the face of corporate country - that pandering beast packaging artists for mass consumption.
