Things are often more memorable in groups of three. “Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness;” “blood, sweat and tears;” and because I need a third thing to make this statement complete let’s say Larry, Curly, and Moe. It is indeed a magic number.
So Luke Bryan should be feeling pretty satisfied about earning that magical third week at No. 1 on the CountryBreakout Chart with his “I Don’t Want This Night To End.” The song closed out the final chart of 2011 on top, and hung on through the break to remain in charge for the first two editions of 2012. Just days ago, the single received Gold certification from the RIAA and earned the Capitol Records artist the highest digital track sales week of his career with 128,000 downloads. His current album Tailgates & Tanlines is also certified Gold.
Bryan will soon join his Georgia buddy Jason Aldean on the road for the 2012 leg of Aldean’s My Kinda Party Tour, beginning January 20 in Greenville, SC.
