Country sensation Luke Bryan was TouchTunes’ Top Played Artist in 2014, closely followed by AC/DC and Eric Church. “Since I started my career playing bars across this country, it makes me proud to be TouchTunes’ Top Played Artist this year,” commented Bryan. “I hope I can continue to make music that makes people want to have fun.”

TouchTunes’ Most Played Song of the year was Brantley Gilbert’s “Bottoms Up.” The song was a smash hit from Gilbert’s Just As I Am, which recently won Favorite Country Album at the 2014 American Music Awards. Upon hearing the news, Gilbert said, “Just found out that “Bottoms Up” was the most played song on TouchTunes in 2014. It means so much to me that the song resonated with so many people.”
From coast to coast, Rock music continued to be the most played genre in 2014, followed by Country, and with the Pop genre coming in third. Pop superstar Katy Perry was TouchTunes’ 2014 Most Played Female Artist.
