Listen to Luke Bryan on iHeartRadio

Luke Bryan is crashing the party at the top of the Billboard 200. 

"Billboard" says the country star's latest effort, Crash My Party, debuted at number one on the album chart after selling just under 528-thousand copies in its first week out.

The impressive total gives Bryan the third best debut of the year behind only Justin Timberlake and Jay Z. Timberlake's 20/20 Experience leads the way with an opening week of 968-thousand, while Jay's Magna Carta Holy Grail started with just over 528-thousand. 

Bryan's achievement also puts him near the top when it comes to the past decade's male country artists. Crash My Party is the biggest selling album from a country gent since Tim McGraw's Live Like You Were Dying sold 766-thousand copies back in 2004.
