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

Luke Bryan’s latest single “Down To One” earns him his 26th consecutive 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.

“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”

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.

Chris Lane’s “Big, Big Plans” Earns Him His Third Career #1 Song

Chris Lane’s “Big, Big Plans” has hit the top spot on the charts this week, earning him his third number-one song following “Fix” and “I Don’t Know About You”.

Just a few days after platinum-selling recording artist, Chris Lane announced the incredible news that his wife, Lauren Bushnell Lane is pregnant with their first child, Lane’s current radio single, “Big, Big Plans” went number one.

Marking his third number one song as an artist, including “Fix” and “I Don’t Know About You,” “Big, Big Plans” is the song that personifies the singer’s relationship with Bushnell. He wrote the song as a surprise to his then-girlfriend to act as the backdrop for their exciting proposal. With such a high demand for the tune, it is clear that fans were sure to make this song hit the top spot!

“She don’t know I got some big, big plans / Build a little house out on some hand-me-down land / Find a little island where we go to get a tan / I bet we take our kids down there one day”

Ironically, the song foreshadows the couple’s future, including having kids, which is now their soon-to-be reality. In regards to new music, Lane promises fans that he is currently working on his next studio album. It is unclear if “Big, Big Plans” will make it on to the new record, but if we had to guess, we’d say it deserves a spot!

Congrats to Lane and his team at Big Loud Records for landing another hit song!

HARDY’s “One Beer” Earns Him His First Career #1 Single as an Artist

HARDY’s “One Beer” featuring Devin Dawson and Lauren Alaina has hit the top spot on the charts this week, earning him his first number-one single as an artist.

One of our favorite songwriters and artists in country music, HARDY, just scored his first number one as a recording artist with “One Beer”. We fell in love with the song long before it was chosen as a single and are so excited to see it land in the top spot! Check out our Swag Session below, where we talk to HARDY about all of the incredible touches that the song has to offer. With several number ones as a songwriter under his belt, the talented artist can officially celebrate another major feat with “One Beer”!

The song, “One Beer” features fellow country musicians, Devin Dawson and Lauren Alaina on the track. The story-telling, yet catchy tune, depicts a situation where a young couple finds their lives changing with a surprise pregnancy. Despite the specific nature of the song, “One Beer” is captivating and electrifying. New York fans definitely agreed as they sang along to every word of the song back in 2019, when the singer performed an acoustic version of the track during his NYC show, shortly after its original release.

It was in that breathtaking moment that we knew the song was something special. A little over a year to the date, we all get to celebrate “One Beer” at the top of the charts. We honestly cannot champion HARDY enough! He truly has got what it takes to become a bonafide superstar! His debut album, A ROCK is a masterpiece that leaves fans wanting more and more. Check out our Up Close & Virtual Interview below, where we chat with HARDY about the record. Congrats to HARDY, Devin, Lauren, and their teams on this incredible accomplishment!

Morgan Wallen’s “More Than My Hometown” Earns Him His 4th Number 1

Morgan Wallen’s “More Than My Hometown” off his upcoming double record, Dangerous, hits the top spot on the charts this week, earning him his fourth consecutive career number one hit, following songs like “Up Down,” “Whiskey Glasses,” and “Chasin’ You.”

If there is anything Morgan Wallen has proven over his young career, it is that anything he releases is going to be a bonafide hit! The newly crowned CMA New Artist of The Year just released three brand new songs ahead of his double album, Dangerous, including “Somebody’s Problem,” “Livin’ The Dream,” and “Still Goin Down.” On top of that, his current single from the project, “More Than My Hometown” just secured the top spot on the country charts.

Wallen now has four hit songs under his belt as a recording artist, as well as, multiple accolades from the music industry and from fans. “More Than My Hometown” is just another pure example of how talented the singer-songwriter truly is. Written by Wallen with HARDY, Ernest, Keith Smith, and Ryan Vojtesak, the song is romantic, inviting, and bittersweet. He combines elements of both nostalgia and heartbreak while maintaining an undeniable charm and sense of self.

I love you more than a California sunset / More than a beer when you aint 21 yet / More than a Sunday morning Lord / Turnin’ some poor lost souls ’round, Hallelujah bound / I love you more than the feeling when the bass hits the hook / When a guy gets the girl at the end of the book / But, baby, this might be the last time I get to lay you down / Cause I cant love you more than my hometown”

Wallen remains one of the most exciting artists in the country genre. We predict another number one album in his future, as well as, bigger and bigger headlining shows. Congrats to Wallen and his team for another number one hit with “More Than My Hometown!”

His second song to country radio, “Everywhere But On” officially earned him another number one hit.

The title track for Stell’s debut EP, Everywhere But On tells the story of a man avoiding the memories of an ex by moving around. The protagonist is doing anything in his power to avoid the feelings of heartache. Appealing to the masses, the single clearly tugged the heartstrings of country music lovers across the nation.

“I’ve been from Savannah to Long Beach / Trying to keep your memory out of reach / But there you were in the Delta nights, the Santa Fe Sun, the Colorado sky / I could add another pushpin to the map / But that don’t stop me from missing you or looking back / Guess there’s just one place I haven’t gone / I’ve moved everywhere, but on”

We got a little preview of the track when the singer played the song as a part of one of our Swag Sessions, which you can watch below. Recently, Stell released his second EP, Better Than That.
