So how exactly do you celebrate the success of a million copies sold of an album titled ‘Tailgates and Tanlines‘? Well if you’re Luke Bryan, you throw a tailgate party, of course.

Bryan, along with his family, friends, industry peers and a few lucky contest winners, were able to hang out at Nashville’s LP Field parking lot last Tuesday to celebrate the singer’s third studio album being newly-certified platinum. ‘Tailgates and Tanlines’ is Bryan’s first record to reach such a status.

The private event was complete with a display of Chevrolet trucks backed into a line on each side of the large stage set up in the middle of the football stadium’s parking lot. As party-goers made their way into the roped-off part of the lot, they were able to enjoy the various food trucks on hand, as well as Miller Lite — a tailgate staple!

“It’s an amazing day to celebrate [the album] being platinum,” Bryan told Taste of Country prior to the party getting underway. “It’s kind of like a college degree … when you get one, no one can take it from you. When you get to say for the rest of your life that you’ve got a platinum album, that really means something. It was a lot of hard work, a lot of effort and a lot of people that have worked hard to make this stuff happen, [including] a lot of sacrifices. Today is a day we all celebrate, and it’s pretty amazing stuff. I’m very excited.”

After the plaques were handed out to Bryan and those who have helped launch him into a new level of stardom in recent years, the singer took the stage with his full band for a live performance. During his set, Bryan performed six songs, including the chart-topping ‘Rain Is a Good Thing,’ his latest single ‘Drunk on You’ and a special medley of his debut single ‘All My Friends Say’ and the classic ‘Enter Sandman.’
