Luke Bryan gathered with a bevy of happy songwriters Monday (Oct. 24) to celebrate seven consecutive No. 1 singles.
The event took place at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in downtown Nashville.
Bryan himself was a co-writer of three of the hits — “I See You” (with Ashley Gorley and Luke Laird), “Strip It Down” (with Ross Copperman and Jon Nite) and “Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day” (with Rhett Akins, Dallas Davidson and Ben Hayslip).
The party also celebrated the chart-topping success of “Play It Again” (written by Gorley and Davidson), “Roller Coaster” (Michael Carter, Cole Swindell), “Kick the Dust Up” (Chris DeStefano, Davidson, Gorley) and “Home Alone Tonight” (Tommy Cecil, Jaida Dreyer, Jody Stevens, Cole Taylor).
Bryan joined the writers for acoustic performances of all seven songs during the party.
At Monday’s celebration, Universal Music Group Nashville chief Mike Dungan presented Bryan with two sales plaques — one commemorating that the seven songs have sold more than 7 million tracks and more 600 million total combined streams and another representing the RIAA certification of his Kill the Lights album, including 3.5 million tracks sold and over 400 million streams.
Bryan, who is nominated in two categories at the upcoming CMA Awards, will close out his Kill the Lights tour Saturday with a stadium show at Ford Field in Detroit.
