Tailgates & Tanlines, produced by Jeff Stevens, is Luke's third studio album for Capitol Records Nashville and will be in stores everywhere on August 9, 2011. This project is the follow up to his GOLD-certified album Doin' My Thing, which produced three back-to-back #1 singles - "Do I," "Rain Is A Good Thing" and "Someone Else Calling You Baby."

"I'm so excited to be giving my fans new music!" shared Luke. "Writing and recording this project has been a blast. I feel like I continue to grow in my artistry and I hope that feeling never goes away. I think being out there on the road so much and seeing what the fans want make it much clearer for me to know what to give them. I hope they are as excited to hear it as I am to know what they think! Tailgates & Tanlines pretty much sums up a good time and that is what I go out there every night wanting to accomplish! I want everyone that hears my music to forget about all the other things in their lives that might stress them out and just raise their hands and sing along!"

The first single off Tailgates & Tanlines, "Country Girl (Shake It For Me)," (co-written with Dallas Davidson and co-produced by Mark Bright and Jeff Stevens) has become a Top 20 hit, his fastest rising single to date, and also debuted as a #1 country digital single. The digital debut became a career-high for Luke with 105,498 in U.S. digital single sales in its first week.
