Luke Bryan Earns 26th #1 Song with “Down To One”

Luke Bryan’s latest single “Down To One” earns him his 26th number one as the song hits the top spot on the country charts this week.

A little-known fact here around NY Country Swag is our founder, Stephanie got into country music when she discovered none other than Luke Bryan. Like Steph and many of us, Bryan continues to be a staple on our playlists. With over twenty number one hit songs to his name and almost two decades of music in his catalog, the singer scored another top song this week with “Down To One,” marking this his 26th consecutive number one hit.

Bryan’s music style can be described sometimes as country and sometimes as pop-country, but ultimately his charming ways keep you coming back for more. Every song he releases has heart and catchy lyrics to back it up. “Down To One” is the fourth single from Bryan’s seventh studio album Born Here Live Here Die Here. Although the entertainer did not write this tune, he knew right away that it was a hit in the making.

“We were down to 1 A.M. / Listenin’ to one more song / Thinkin’ I want more than just one night out here with you alone / Down to that last Bud Light / In the back of that two-tone, half-ton / My heart was tellin’ me that one more kiss, and I’d be done”

The track is an easy and effortless love song that fits Bryan’s style and vocals perfectly. The mellow love song is one of those tracks that you cannot help but smile at while you listen. We know that this jam will become a staple at live shows when Bryan and his band can finally take the stage again. Until then, fans can get their Luke fix by watching American Idol each week!

Additionally, Bryan will release the deluxe version of his Born Here, Live Here, Die Here album which will include six brand new songs, on April 9th.

Darius Rucker Scores 10th #1 Song with “Beers And Sunshine”

Darius Rucker’s “Beers And Sunshine” earns him his 10th #1 as the song hits the top spot on the country charts this week.

Darius Rucker has provided us with so many hits and just downright great music over the past two decades. A staple in country music, Rucker deserves all his accomplishments. His latest single, “Beers And Sunshine” is his first solo country radio single, since 2018. It is no surprise that it is this week’s chart-topping single!

Written by Rucker with J.T. Harding, Josh Osborne, and Ross Copperman, during quarantine, the song is everything we want in a fun and enticing summer anthem. The song reminds us to enjoy all the little things in life, exactly what we need, during today’s day and age.

“Beers and sunshine / Bonfires and summertime / Back porch nights in South Carolina / Ain’t nothing finer than me and my girl striking up a little lighter / ‘Cause everybody’s down in a world gone crazy / Don’t know how to fix it but I think maybe / Turn on the good times, turn off the TV / Yeah, the only BS I need is beer and sunshine”

As always, Rucker is one of the most exciting artists to see perform live, whether it is as a solo artist or as the lead vocalist in Hootie & the Blowfish. “Beers And Sunshine” is sure to be a hit, during live performances. Congrats to Rucker and his team for another smash hit!

Kelsea Ballerini Scores Another Number One Song With “hole in the bottle”

Kelsea Ballerini scores another number one song with “hole in the bottle”, overtaking Luke Comb’s “Better Together.”

It is extra special when a female country artist’s song lands at the top of the charts because unfortunately, it does not happen as often as we would like. This week, Kelsea Ballerini’s song “hole in the bottle” made its debut in the top spot, breaking Luke Combs’ three-week streak and claiming Ballerini’s 6th number one song.

Since she came on the country music scene, Ballerini has gotten a lot of love by radio, scoring number one’s with her first three singles, “Love Me Like You Mean It,” “Dibs,” and “Peter Pan.” As of late, it has been a little harder for the talented singer-songwriter to get the love she deserves, as it often is for female country artists on the charts. It is about time that one of the amazing songs from her latest album kelsea, scores the top spot!

“There’s a hole in the bottle / Leakin’ all this wine / It’s already empty and it ain’t even suppertime / Honey, no, I don’t miss him / In fact, it slipped my mind / There’s a hole in the bottle of wine”

Ballerini continues to be a pioneer for women in country music. Fellow artists, Gabby Barrett and Tenille Arts, round out the top fifteen on the charts this week, and we’d love to see them make it into the top ten too with their respective songs.

“Some things just go better together and probably always will / Like a cup of coffee and a sunrise, Sunday drives and time to kill / What’s the point of this ol’ guitar if it ain’t got no strings / Or pourin’ your heart into a song that you ain’t gonna sing”

There is truly no stopping the hitmaker! Congratulations to Luke and his team!

Lady A Earn 11th Career and Multi-Week # 1 with “Champagne Night”

Lady A’s “Champagne Night” earns them their 11th career and multi-week #1 hit song as the track sits at the top spot on the country charts this week.

Since their inception, the famed country music trio, Lady A have had their fair share of highs and lows as they navigate the country music world. With that being said, the talented singer-songwriters can officially say that they have eleven number one songs to their name. Most recently, their single “Champagne Night”, first introduced to the world by NBC’s hit show Songland,  has reached and maintained the number one spot on country charts for not one, but two consecutive weeks.

Songland has won the hearts of music lovers everywhere. The show features aspiring songwriters pitching songs to industry professionals, Shane McAnally, Ryan Tedder, and Ester Dean in the hopes of a famous act choosing to record their song. On Lady A’s episode of the show, the group chose to record a reworked version of Madeline Merlo’s song “Champagne Night.” Official songwriter credits have been given to Ester Dean, Shane McAnally, Andrew DeRoberts, Charles Kelley, Dave Haywood, Dave Thomson, Hillary Scott, Madeline Merlo, Patricia Conroy, Ryan Tedder, and Tina Gemza. This marks the first song from the show to be promoted as an official radio single, and now a number one hit.

Lady A Earn 11th Career and Multi-Week # 1 with "Champagne Night"

Lady A Earn 11th Career and Multi-Week # 1 with “Champagne Night”

“Raisin’ plastic cups to a life of luxury / C’est la vie on a Friday / We get dressed up in a blue jean tux / And we go where we don’t hear the highway / Don’t need doubles and bubbles / To get in all kinds of trouble / Out in country / Don’t need a crystal chandelier / To have a real good time / We’re drinkin’ beer on a champagne night / A champagne night”

The fast tempo and feel-good nature of “Champagne Night” is just one of the many reasons that the song was such a hit with fans. We’re sure when live shows resume that this will be one of the biggest songs on their setlist.
