In addition to claiming #1 on the Mediabase country radio singles chart, Luke Bryan’s “Fast” earns the top spot on this week’s Billboard Country Airplay chart.

In doing so, “Fast” becomes the record-setting sixth Country Airplay #1 from Bryan’s “Kill The Lights.” No artist had previously earned more than five Country Airplay number ones from a single album.

Bryan is one of those artists. His previous album “Crash My Party” yielded five number ones (“That’s My Kind Of Night” reached #1 on the Mediabase chart but peaked at #2 on Billboard). Brad Paisley and Blake Shelton also achieved the feat with “5th Gear” and “Based On A True Story,” respectively.

The previous number ones from “Kill The Lights” are “Kick The Dust Up,” “Strip It Down,” “Home Alone Tonight,” “Huntin,’ Fishin’ And Lovin’ Every Day,” and “Move.”
