Luke Bryan Continues Run at No. 1 for a Third Week
There is just no slowing Luke Bryan down! This week marks the singer’s third consecutive week atop the country singles chart with his red-hot hit ‘Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye.’
Bryan has taken his last two singles from his ‘Tailgates and Tanlines’ album — ‘I Don’t Want This Night to End’ and ‘Drunk on You’ — to the No. 1 position, with the album’s lead single, ‘Country Girl (Shake It for Me)’ peaking at No. 2.
‘Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye’ is Bryan’s fifth career chart-topping hit, and this is the fourth time he has shared songwriter credit on a No. 1 tune. The singer co-wrote his latest hit with his producer, Jeff Stevens, as well as Shane McAnally while out on tour.
“I picked up my guitar one night and was playing around with it and this cool chord structure and lick came to me,” Stevens told us shortly after the song’s release to country radio. “I kept playing it cause I thought it sounded different and the words ‘kiss tomorrow goodbye’ came to me as if it shot out of my guitar! I thought the title sounded good but I didn’t want to write a song about holding on to a relationship that wasn’t working.”
Clearly, the result of that writing session was a big hit which Bryan’s fans just can’t seem to get enough of!
