"Could It Be," which earned Charlie the title of Country Aircheck’s No. 1 most added male artist for first week radio adds, is currently available on iTunes.
Gloriana celebrates another career milestone as their last single “(Kissed You) Good Night” gets certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (R.I.A.A.) for selling a million copies. “(Kissed You) Good Night,” which was the most played single by a group at Country Radio in 2012, is from the trio’s critically acclaimed second studio album A Thousand Miles Left Behind. Gloriana’s current single “Can’t Shake You” has landed in the Top 20 on the Billboard Country Singles Chart and is steadily climbing.
Nine-time GRAMMY award-winner Sheryl Crow will release her highly anticipated brand-new album, Feels Like Home, September 10th on Warner Bros. Records. The album is the first country record of her career and features her hit single, “Easy,” which is currently Top 20 and climbing. Each track on the album was co-written with another songwriter, which is a first for Crow, including GRAMMY award-winner Brad Paisley.
