Boy, was 2013 the year of Luke.
Luke Bryan broke through in a huge way, shooting from solid country performer to stratospheric superstar. His album "Crash My Party" went platinum - meaning it sold more than one million copies - within just six weeks. His title single and "That's My Kind of Night" both hit #1.
He was named Entertainer of the Year at the Academy of Country Music Awards, an awards ceremony that he co-hosted with Blake Shelton.
Bryan did his first arena tour as a headliner, too. It began in January of 2013 - and it sold out every date. Why stop there? He won't. He's just kicked off a new tour, with dates tonight and Friday at the Mohegan Sun Arena.
