Nashville Notes Wed Aug 31 Luke Bryan hits a home run/ Sam Hunt makes history/Chase Rice sings a new one

Though he’s not usually playing on the baseball diamond, Luke Bryan can officially say he’s hit a home run at Wrigley Field. This Saturday, the CMA Entertainer of the Year managed a sell-out during his first show at the home of the Chicago Cubs.

As “Make You Miss Me” ascends to the top of the country chart this week, Sam Hunt also makes history. He becomes the first solo male ever to chart four number-one singles from his debut album on the BillboardCountry Airplay chart.

“Leave the Night On,” “House Party” and “Take Your Time” are his three other chart-toppers fromMontevallo. “Break Up in a Small Town” went top-five as well.

After wrapping Kenny Chesney’s Spread the Love tour last weekend, the Georgia native can turn all his attention toward his sophomore effort, with new music expected in the coming months.
