Thursday, March 7, 2013
– Luke Bryan may have a number one album on his hands. Billboard
reported Thursday that "Spring Break . . . Here to Party," a compilation of previous spring break EPs with two new songs, may sell slightly more than 100,000 copies by the end of the tracking week on Sunday.
Bryan released the new disc on Tuesday.
Billboard indicates that might be enough to top the charts. The company releases its top 10 every Wednesday morning.
The new Bryan disc is available at stores unlike his four previous spring break-themed EPs, which were digital only8.
The four earlier EPs have sold a combined 145,000 according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Bryan's last CD, "tailgates & tanlines," sold 1.1 million units last year.
