NASHVILLE, TN Thursday Aug.30.2007 / -- Luke Bryan has spent two straight weeks criss-crossing the country promoting the launch of his debut album I'LL STAY ME.

All of his hard work has paid off with sales just shy of 25,000 albums sold the first week, putting him at No. 2 on the Billboard country albums chart behind Taylor Swift.

"Before I went out on this album launch tour, everyone at Capitol Records and many of my artist friends prepared me for what to expect during the album launch," said Luke Bryan.

"I was told to be prepared to be exhausted, to be prepared to lose my voice from talking and singing so much but no one ever prepared me for how excited I would be! This has been an amazing two weeks and it couldn't have come together any better."
