Luke Bryan To Heat Up Summer With New Album

luke bryan kill the lightsLuke Bryan’s next album Kill The Lights is set for release on Friday, Aug. 7. It is the follow up to his most successful project to date, the double platinum Crash My Party, which has yielded six consecutive No. 1 singles.

The Capitol Nashville artist appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today (May 19) to announce the album and perform its lead single “Kick The Dust Up,” which was released today. Tonight he will perform the single on the season finale of The Voice.

“We’ve been performing the new song on tour this spring, using it to open the shows,” said Bryan. “We love the crowd reaction to it and I cannot wait to be able to share more new music this summer. It’s been two years since we’ve had a new album and I don’t think I’ve been this eager yet to get it out to the fans.”

Bryan will perform on Good Morning America on album release day, Aug. 7, as part of the 2015 Summer Concert Series at Rumsey Playfield in Central Park.

Since debuting in 2007, Bryan has scored 12 No. 1 singles and sold nearly seven million albums. His digital track sales total 27 million from four studio albums.

In 2014, Bryan achieved the best touring year of his career with 1.7 million fans attending his concerts. In early 2015, he played his first-ever shows in Europe. His current Kick The Dust Up Tour will continue through October and includes seven stadium dates. He is the reigning CMA and ACM Entertainer of the Year.

This Friday (May 22), The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum will launch a summer exhibit, “Luke Bryan: Dirt Road Diary.”
