Luke Bryan has made history.
Last week, the country sensation’s single “Fast” skyrocketed its way to No. 1 county radio charts, becoming Bryan’s 18th song in his career to hold the top spot. The track’s success broke records by making Kill the Lights the only album in the 27-year history of the Billboard Country Airplay chart to produce six No. 1 songs overall.
Following the news, the 40-year-old took to Twitter to show his gratitude, referring to the record-breaking moment as an “honor.”

“Fast” trails the success of “Kick the Dust Up,” “Move,” “Strip It Down,” “Huntin’, Fishin’, and Lovin’ Every Day,” and “Home Alone Tonight,” a collaboration with Karen Fairchild of Little Big Town. Bryan’s Kill the Lights has sold over 1.1 million copies to date since its release back in 2015.
The singer’s latest accomplishment also shatters a personal record. His previous album Crash My Party only generated a total of five No. 1 hits, tying with Brad Paisley’s 5th Gear and Blake Shelton’s Based on a True Story.
Bryan is currently getting ready to hit the road for his Huntin’, Fishin’, and Lovin’ Every Day Tour which kicks off May 5 in Nashville, Tennessee.
