Kane Brown Achieves 8 Weeks At #1 On Billboard Top Country Album Chart

Since His Debut Released December 2016, No Other Country Album Has Spent More Weeks On Top Of Chart

2018 ACM Award double-nominated Kane Brown expands his reign at the top of the charts as his self-titled debut album notches an 8th week at #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. Since his debut released on December 2, 2016, no other country album has held the #1 slot for more weeks. In 2018, the singer/songwriter has held the #1 album position for 6 out of 8 weeks.

Brown’s Gold-certified current single “Heaven” is also #1 for a second consecutive week on Nielsen’s On Demand Audio Core Country Streaming chart, and it climbs to #12 on Billboard and Country Aircheck/Mediabase country airplay charts. His current single was written by Matthew McGinn, Lindsay Rimes and Shy Carter and produced by Dann Huff.

Last week, “Heaven” replaced the 24-year old entertainer’s Double-Platinum certified “What Ifs” featuring Lauren Alaina at the top of this chart. 2018’s most-streamed song, “What Ifs” has held #1 for 18 weeks on Nielsen’s On Demand Audio Core Country Streaming chart.

Kane Brown is nominated for New Male Vocalist of the Year and for Vocal Collaboration for “What Ifs” featuring Lauren Alaina for the “53rd Academy of Country Music Awards” broadcasting live on April 15 on CBS.

On October 28, 2017, Brown became the first artist ever to achieve #1 on Billboard’s five country charts simultaneously, including Top Country Albums (Kane Brown Deluxe Edition); Country Digital Song Sales (“Heaven”); and Country Airplay, Hot Country Songs, and Country Streaming Songs (“What Ifs” featuring Lauren Alaina).

When breakthrough artist Kane Brown released his self-titled debut in December 2016, it became and remains country’s #1 best-selling new-artist album debut since 2014.
