Luke Bryan has just received his latest honour.
While attending Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry Tuesday to participate in their annual “flip the switch” show to help raise awareness for the fight against breast cancer, the singer was unexpectedly honoured with the ACM Album of the Decade award for his fourth studio album Crash My Party.
After flipping the switch to turn the Opry barn pink, Bryan performed hits “Most People Are Good”, “Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day”, “Play It Again”, and “Do I”.
Bryan was awarded the trophy after his set and invited album producers Jeff and Jody Stevens on stage to join the celebration.
“I got them out here because I haven’t had the opportunity to thank them at an awards show and I want everyone to know how hard these guys have worked,” said Bryan addressing the crowd. “Crash My Party was such a life-changing album for us. We didn’t know it at the time.”
Released in 2013, the record featured seven No. 1 singles, including “Roller Coaster”, “That’s My Kind of Night”, “Drink a Beer”, and the album’s title track.
“When it came out, it blew my mind the love and support we had from the fans. It’s so fun getting to do this,” he confessed on stage.
Along with last night’s award, Bryan just celebrated his 23rd No. 1 single with his energetic hit “Knockin’ Boots”. His still-untitled seventh studio album is expected to arrive by the end of 2019.
