Opening for Sam Hunt's Sold-Out Lipstick Graffiti Tour
For a self-described late bloomer who didn’t give his first real kiss until he was 17 years old, Warner Bros Records artist Michael Ray sure is getting a lot of action with “Kiss You In The Morning,” his debut single. Capturing all of Ray’s talent and charm, “Kiss You In The Morning” is Top 30 in both Billboard and Mediabase.
Named one of CMT’s Next Women of Country, Elektra Records artist Jana Kramer serves up the lamenting ballad, “I Got The Boy.” Written by Tim Nichols, Connie Harrington and Jamie Lynn Spears, “I Got The Boy,” enters the Billboard Country Singles chart at 48 in its first week at radio.
Blake Shelton, Ashley Monroe, Brett Eldredge and Cole Swindell all achieve chart-topping hits
Warner Music Nashville is celebrating a little March Madness of its own with three songs by four of the company’s recording artists reaching No. 1 this month. WMN is the first label group to land three singles in the No. 1 spot this year.
Country superstar Blake Shelton’s “Lonely Tonight,” which recently became his 14th consecutive No. 1 single, has now officially been certified Gold by the RIAA. The Academy of Country Music Awards-nominated duet with Warner Bros. Records label mate and friend Ashley Monroe became Shelton’s 19th No. 1 overall and 18th gold-certified single to date (which includes all 14 consecutive No. 1’s).
With “Mean to Me,” CMA New Artist of the Year Brett Eldredge joins a prestigious group of artists who’ve written and recorded three consecutive No. 1 singles from their debut album. Atop this week’s Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and Mediabase/Country Aircheck, “Mean to Me” follows his two other back to back No. 1 singles “Don’t Ya” and “Beat of the Music” off his debut album, Bring You Back. “Wow! First #1, my life was changed, second #1, it got even better and now to close out an album with a third #1, it’s a dream come true,” said Eldredge.
Warner Music Nashville was created in 2009 to expand the presence of WMG and its family of labels in Nashville. The division is home to Atlantic Records, Warner Bros. Records, Elektra Nashville and Word Entertainment.
