Luke-Bryan4-630x419

For the second week in a row, Luke Bryan topped the Billboard 200 with his fourth studio album, Crash My Party. Released on 8/13, the album sold an impressive 528,000 copies in its first week, trailing only Jay Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail and Justin Timberlake’s 20/20 Experience for top 2013 debut.

The album release came in the midst of Bryan’s “Dirt Road Diaries” Tour. The 55-show tour began its first leg on 1/17 and now has 18 remaining shows before the conclusion of the second leg on 10/26. The average price for the remaining dates is $188, up 16% since the album was released.

Dirt Road Diaries also supports Bryan’s 2011 album Tailgates and Tanlines, which earned him Album of the Year at the 2012 American Country Awards and Entertainer of the Year at the 2013 ACM Awards.
