Luke Bryan makes country chart history in U.S.

Luke Bryan has made chart history in America by becoming the first artist to hit the top of the Billboard Country Airplay countdown with six songs from one album.

A day after the singer co-hosted the Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas, his latest single, Fast, has hit number one, giving him his sixth chart-topper from his Kill the Lights album.

The song's success breaks a tie between Bryan, Brad Paisley, and Blake Shelton, who have all hit the top of the chart with five songs from one project.

Luke has now managed that feat twice - he also landed five chart-toppers from his 2013 album Crash My Party.

Bryan's six number ones from Kill the Lights are: Kick the Dust Up, Strip It Down, Home Alone Tonight, Huntin', Fishin' & Lovin' Every Day, Move, and Fast.

The Billboard Country Airplay countdown was first launched in 1990.
