It might not have reached #1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, but “That’s My Kind of Night” was unquestionably one of the biggest releases of Luke Bryan’s career.
And it this week propels Bryan into a territory occupied by only one other solo male country artist.
Still a reasonably hot seller on iTunes, the song officially crossed the 2 million sales mark. It follows “Tailgates and Tanlines” singles “Country Girl (Shake It For Me)” (3,089,000), “Drunk On You” (2,847,000) and “I Don’t Want This Night To End” (2,552,000) to become the fourth Luke Bryan song to achieve the feat.
Jason Aldean is the only other solo male country artist to cross the two million mark with four songs. He reached the milestone via “She’s Country,” “Big Green Tractor,” “Don’t You Wanna Stay (with Kelly Clarkson)” and “Dirt Road Anthem.”
While “That’s My Kind of Night” reached #1 on the current iteration of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart, it settled for a #2 peak on the Airplay chart. Since the Country Airplay chart launched in 2012, all of Luke Bryan’s other four releases (“Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye,” “Crash My Party,” “Drink a Beer” and “Play it Again”) hit #1.
