Lainey Wilson Scores First Number One with “Things A Man Oughta Know”

Lainey Wilson scores her first number one single with “Things A Man Oughta Know.” The song is her lead single of her major-label record Sayin’ What I’m Thinkin.

Fiery newcomer, Lainey Wilson is one of our favorite new artists in country music. During her live shows, she mesmerizes fans and truly takes over the stage. Although her record Sayin’ What I’m Thinkin only came out in February, the project already houses a hit song. Wilson’s debut single “Things A Man Oughta Know” is officially the number one song on country charts.

The lead single captivated fans and industry almost instantly. We have watched it steadily climb up the charts over the last several months. With each milestone hit, it has been so exciting watching the single rise. Wilson helps to break the mold for all of the incredibly talented female artists out there who are just not getting enough radio play.

“How to know when it’s love // How to stay when it’s tough // How to know you’re messin’ up a good thing // And how to fix it ‘fore it’s too late // And yeah, I know a boy // Who gave up and got it wrong // If you really love a woman, you don’t let her go // Yeah, I know a few things a man oughta know”

The song itself is all about a woman teaching a few lessons to a man. It breaks gender stereotypes in a way that is both enticing and important. Wilson is a true star in the making. We cannot wait to see her star continue to rise, as more and more fans flock to her shows! Congrats to Wilson and her team on the number one!

Thomas-rhett-number-one-country-again

Thomas Rhett Scores 18th Number One Single with “Country Again”

Thomas Rhett’s song “Country Again” officially marks his eighteenth number one single on Country Radio. The track follows the success of “What’s Your Country Song.”

Platinum-selling superstar, Thomas Rhett can truly do no wrong with fans and the country music industry alike. His talent transcends genres and generations. Back in March, his lead single “What’s Your Country Song,” the lead single off his record Country Again Side A, earned him his seventeenth number one song. Today, the second single off that project, “Country Again” is the next number one song of his career.

“Country Again” peaked the interest of fans, even before its release. The song strips back the production and focuses on simplicity. As the lyrics state, Rhett favors small-town life to the glitz and glam of fame. The song marks the singer’s return to his roots. Although we love everything Rhett puts out, it is nice to see him return to the sound and style of music that made him a household name.

“I spent way less time in Nashville // And more time in L.A. // My back home buddies, they quit callin’ // Thought I had too much on my plate // But last night we cracked some cold beers // And cranked Eric Church to ten // Thought, Man, it feels good to be country again”

Only time will tell what is next for Rhett’s career. It seems everything he touches is a success, and for good reason. Fans can look forward to the next installment of the singer’s double album, slated to come out later this year. Congrats to Rhett and his team for another hit!

On the heels of his incredible documentary, Luke Bryan has scored his 27th number-one single of his career! Truly a staple in country music, Bryan is an absolute superstar. The singer’s current radio single “Waves” catapulted to the number one spot on the charts just four months after it impacted country radio. It follows the chart-topping success of his song “Down To One.”

The fourth single off his latest project Born Here Live Here Die Here“Waves” is clearly a crowd-favorite. Written by Chase McGill, Zachery Crowell, and Ryan Hurd, the single is one that will make anyone swoon. Bryan’s piercing vocals make this song hard not to fall in love with.

“You were made for summer // Just like these stars we’re under // We’re made for lighting this // July sky up // Blanket down made for me and you tied up // All night long, over and over // Crash into me and pull me closer // Kiss by kiss, one after another // Don’t let go, baby, let this summer // Just keep on coming in waves”

The track is an easy and effortless love song that fits Bryan’s style and vocals. The mid-tempo tune is one of those tracks that screams nostalgia. “Waves” fits in perfectly with the singer’s already incredible live show setlist.

Parmalee Scores #1 Song with “Just The Way” featuring Blanco Brown

Parmalee’s “Just The Way” featuring Blanco Brown earns them number one song as the tune hits the top spot on the country charts this week.

It has been seven years, since country band, Parmalee found themselves at the top of the charts with “Carolina.” Now, their smash hit with fellow artist and friend, Blanco Brown, “Just The Way” revitalized their career and exponentially grew their prospective fanbase. Today the upbeat song found its way to the top of the country charts, marking Brown’s first number one on country radio.

Written by Matt Thomas, Kevin Bard, and Nolan Sipe, “Just The Way” is a song that encourages acceptance and loving people for who they are. Boasting equality, it is refreshing to see a song like this take the number one spot on the charts. The song shares the impossible task of being perceived as perfect on social media and to society, adding that flaws are really what makes us human.

“I love you just the way God made you // Girl, he don’t make mistakes // What you call your imperfections // I call beautiful, babe // So let my eyes be your mirror // And you’re bound to see it too // ‘Cause I was made for loving // Just the way God made you”

Parmalee and Brown take turns singing their prospective verses. During the chorus and bridge, the band and singer show how effortless their voices mesh together, as well as, how incredibly talented they all are.

Congrats to Parmalee and Brown on their hit!

Niko Moon Scores His First Number One Song with “GOOD TIME”

Niko Moon’s “GOOD TIME” earns him his first number one song as the tune hits the top spot on the country charts this week.

Niko Moon is an artist and a songwriter that we have believed in from day one! Right before the world shut down last year, we featured him in one of our Live Swag Sessions, where he sang “GOOD AT LOVING YOU” and of course, “GOOD TIME”, just before sitting down to chat about the music. Now, we all get to celebrate as Moon’s first single to country radio, “GOOD TIME” is officially the number one song on Country Radio.

With an unbelievable zest for life, Moon proves that a happy song is exactly what we need right now. “GOOD TIME” is exactly what it sounds like, a song that makes you just want to kick back, let go of your worries, and just vibe with the song. His debut single shows an authentic blending of genres with a universal message of highlighting positivity and happiness at the forefront.

“I’ve got some good news y’all! “GOOD TIME” is number one on the radio y’all! It’s the number one song on country radio,” shared Moon in an Instagram video from earlier today, “and it’s all because of y’all! It’s all because y’all supported me through this crazy past year and I just wanted to tell y’all how much y’all mean to me”.

Moon is one of those artists that will continue to sneak up on you. His undeniable charm and charisma is one of a kind, and we cannot wait to see how the NYCountry Swag 2021 Artist to Watch continues to blossom this year. When live music makes a full comeback, we’re sure that Niko Moonwill be one of the first to get back out there and start the party again for his fans!

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.

“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.
