Luke Bryan recorded his fourth No. 1 single this week when “I Don’t Want This Night To End” hit the top of the charts. Luke co-wrote the track with fellow Georgia natives Rhett Akins, Dallas Davidson and Ben Hayslip. The song is Luke’s fastest rising single to date and has sold over 1 million downloads, to be certified platinum.
“I Don’t Want This Night To End” also broke the record for the highest audience of any No. 1 single this year with 40 million audience impressions this week. The single follows up his last No. 1 and platinum-certified single, “Country Girl (Shake It For Me).” Luke spent the weekend playing the song for fans as a special guest on Jason Aldean’s sold-out My Kinda Party Tour, which kicked off Friday Night in Greenville, South Carolina.
“I thought ‘Country Girl (Shake It For Me)’ was going to be hard to beat in my shows but watching over 16,000 people jumping with their hands in the air last night just blew me away,” Luke said. “Thank you to radio and the country music fans for continuing to let me have fun with my music. I’m having a blast!”
“I Don’t Want This Night To End” will be featured on the latest volume of the NOW music series, NOW 41, in stores February 7. Other stars on the compilation CD include Adele, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Coldplay and LMFAO.
