Billboard named “Tailgates & Tanlines” the No. 2 Country Album in 2012. Also in 2012, Bryan took home 11 music awards, including a record nine wins at the American Country Awards, as well as his first American Music Award. His fourth album will be released on Aug. 13. He also hosted the ACM Awards this year.
