NATE SMITH’S “WORLD ON FIRE” CONTINUES TO DOMINATE THE BILLBOARD COUNTRY AIRPLAY CHART REIGNING AT NO. 1 FOR 10 CONSECUTIVE WEEKS

TIES MORGAN WALLEN’S “YOU PROOF” FOR LONGEST RUN AT NO. 1; FIRST ARTIST TO ACHIEVE THIS FEAT WITH A SECOND SINGLE AT COUNTRY RADIO & CONSECUTIVE 10 WEEK RUN

New Single, “Bulletproof” Out Now; Through The Smoke EP, Arriving April 5

Plays To A Sold-Out Crowd At Los Angeles’ El Rey Theater Last Night

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Country breakout star Nate Smith continues to dominate at No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart for the tenth consecutive week with his smash hit single “World On Fire.”  This feat ties Morgan Wallen’s “You Proof” for the longest run at No. 1 for his song “You Proof” and marks Smith as the first artist to achieve this run with a second single at country radio and consecutive week run.  The song also hit No. 1 on the Mediabase/Country Aircheck chart for three weeks.

Last week, Smith debuted his latest anthemic single today, “Bulletproof,” along with an official video. Written by Ashley Gorley, Ben Johnson, and Hunter Phelps, the song battles the bulletproof memory of a past relationship. Additionally, the singer announced his Through The Smoke EP, arriving April 5. Pre-add/order/save the EP and listen to “Bulletproof” here. Watch the music video for “Bulletproof” here.

“Bulletproof” will be one of seven songs included on his Through The Smoke EP, due April 5. Smith shared about the project, “I’ve been through a lot of adversity in my life, but ‘through the smoke’ came to mind one day and I thought that was the perfect way to describe making it through tragedy. It captures what it looks like on the other side of heartbreak, on the other side of tragedy, on the other side of giving everything you’ve got to go after what you want to do in life. I think this EP is a transition between all the fire and pain and everything I went through, and then overcoming. And that’s what I want people to feel. It’s layered in there.”

Last month, Smith brought a fiery performance of “World On Fire” to NBC’s TODAY with Hoda & Jenna, watch here. With over 175 million global streams to date, “World On Fire” follows Smith’s Platinum-certified, multi-week No. 1 debut single “Whiskey On You.” Only 19 songs went No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart last year, two of which belong to Smith.

“World On Fire” is one of 26 tracks on Smith’s self-titled album released last year. The album hit #6 on Billboard’s Country albums chart and #30 overall on the Billboard Top 200. Nate Smith also includes RIAA Gold-certified hits “Wreckage” and “Under My Skin.” Smith now has over a billion total career streams worldwide and has achieved four No.1s on SiriusXM The Highway’s Hot 30 Weekend Countdown: “Whiskey On You,” “I Found You,” “Better Boy,” and “World On Fire.”

Smith kicked off his headline WORLD ON FIRE TOUR last month, stopping in major cities across the country including Chicago, Indianapolis, and NYC. Just last night, he played to a sold-out crowd at LA’s El Rey Theatre. This spring and summer, he’ll join Morgan Wallen for his ONE NIGHT AT A TIME 2024 tour. He will open the highly sought-after tour in stadiums across the country, with stops in Arlington (TX), Charlotte, Denver, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Minneapolis, Nashville, Oxford (MS), Tampa and other cities. Smith will also return to Stagecoach next year after his debut appearance at the festival this year.

Additionally, the buzzworthy star received a nomination at the 2024 iHeartRadio Music Awards for BEST NEW ARTIST (COUNTRY). The show will air LIVE on FOX on Monday, April 1 at 7pm CT, as well as broadcast live on 150+ iHeartRadio stations around the country.

About Nate Smith:

Featuring a mix of gritty backwoods soul, rock ‘n’ roll swagger and velvet-thunder vocals, Nate Smith’s personal journey inspired him to be a beacon of country-music hope, an inspirational mission he puts front-and-center. A California native, former worship leader, and lifelong music lover, Smith approaches that mission with a background as eclectic as it gets. Learning guitar at 13, Garth Brooks, Elvis Presley and Bob Seger were among those informing his powerful, fire-from-within vocals, while Michael Jackson made him crave the spotlight and Nirvana gave his sound a jagged edge. In 2018, Smith lost everything he owned in the devastating Camp Fire which tore through Paradise, California, now known as the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in the state’s history. Although his family was safe, he struggled to cope and turned back to music, hoping that it would help comfort himself and others. Help it did, inspiring a month-long road trip across the U.S. to Music City, writing music and playing dive bars along the way.

Since making it to Nashville, the singer’s “powerhouse tenor” has become “perhaps country music’s fastest-rising beloved voice” (The Tennessean). He’s made a huge splash with songs such as his Platinum-certified multi-week No. 1 hit “Whiskey On You,” which was lauded as the “breakup song of the summer” by Country Now and “an enormously satisfying country kiss-off anthem” by Stereogum. The smash hit has racked up over 420 million total global on-demand streams to date, contributing to Nate’s billion total catalog streams globally. Nate released his debut, self-titled album along with the deluxe version on April 28. The hefty 26-song project hit #6 on Billboard’s Country album charts and #30 on the Billboard Top 200. His latest single off the album, “World On Fire,” reached No. 1 on the country radio charts in December, and has remained at the top of the charts for ten consecutive weeks. The CMT Awards and ACM Awards nominee spent the summer touring alongside Thomas Rhett and Cole Swindell. He kicked off his headline WORLD ON FIRE TOUR 2024 in January and will hit the road with Morgan Wallen this spring/summer. Nate is managed by Kevin “Chief” Zaruk and Simon Tikhman with The Core Entertainment.

MEGAN MORONEY SHARES ALL-NEW VERSION OF “NO CALLER ID” FROM THE EMO COWGIRL LIVE SESSIONS

Today, Sony Music Nashville/Columbia Records superstar Megan Moroney premieres a brand-new version of “No Caller ID” from the Emo Cowgirl Live Sessions — an all-acoustic performance recorded and filmed at Clementine Hall in Nashville. Go here to check out the Emo Cowgirl Live Sessions version of “No Caller ID” now.

An immediate fan favorite since Moroney first shared the song during her sold-out THE LUCKY TOUR last year, “No Caller ID” takes on a breathtaking new life in the Emo Cowgirl Live Sessions video. With all the warmth and pure emotion she brings to every live performance, the Georgia-bred singer/songwriter fully embodies the melancholy mood at heart of the song — a gorgeously detailed account of getting a late-night phone call from an ex just when you’ve started to move on with your life. Accompanied by guitarists Benji Shanks and Kristian Bush (also Moroney’s frequent producer/collaborator) and pedal-steel player Justin Schipper — all of whom played on the song’s studio version — Moroney adds even more intensity and intimacy to each line of “No Caller ID,” thanks in large part to her raw yet ravishing vocal work. 

Released last month, “No Caller ID” proved to be an instant sensation as the track set the record for the biggest Country female song debut in streams in the U.S., while racking up 8.4 MILLION global streams in the first week as well as generating over 92 million views and 15k creations using “No Caller ID” on TikTok. Since the song the first dropped, Moroney has also amassed more than 100k new followers across TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube — marking the start of what promises to be a blockbuster year for Country’s It Girl. Meanwhile, Moroney currently has two songs in the Top 30 on Country radio: “I’m Not Pretty” (the magnetic opening track to LUCKY) and “Can’t Break Up Now” (her recent collaboration with Old Dominion).

In another major triumph for Moroney, her upcoming THE LUCKY 2.O TOUR sold out just five minutes after tickets went on sale in late January. Solidifying her status as an in-demand headliner, her third consecutive headline run kicks off on April 19 in Dothan, Alabama, and is currently set to run through July 26 in Aspen, Colorado. With special guest Logan Crosby as support, the tour takes its name from Moroney’s massively acclaimed debut album LUCKY — a 2023 LP that quickly propelled her to best-of-the-year lists from major outlets like The New York Times and Rolling Stone and featured her 2X PLATINUM, No. 1 breakout “Tennessee Orange.”

This spring and summer, Moroney will also take the stage at stadiums across the country as support for Kenny Chesney’s SUN DOWN 2024 TOUR, in addition to appearing at high-profile festivals such as Stagecoach in April. For full tour dates and ticketing information, visit www.meganmoroney.com/.

With several award nominations already under her belt, Moroney is now vying for the fan-voted 2024 People’s Choice Awards for The Female Country Artist of the Year (airing February 18 at 8/7c on NBC, Peacock, and E!). She’s also up for three 2024 iHeartRadio Music Awards: Best New Artist (Country), plus all-genre, fan-voted categories Favorite Debut Album and Social Star, broadcasting live April 1 at 8/7c on FOX (vote here).

LOUISIANA NATIVE GRAHAM BARHAM CELEBRATES MARDI GRAS WITH NEW TRACK, “BOYOU BOY”

Just in time for Fat Tuesday, Sony Music Nashville/Disruptor Records newcomer and Louisiana native Graham Barham debuted his latest track, “BAYOU BOY.” Listen here.

“Dropping ‘BAYOU BOY’ felt like the right opportunity to properly introduce myself and to let my audience know who I am,” said Barham. Co-written with Beau Bailey and Will Bundy, the song is an ode to life in Barham’s home state and highlights the singer-songwriter’s trademark clever wordplay bringing to life distinctive imagery of the bayou, from mossy oaks to Mardi Gras beads.

Barham kicked off 2024 with the release of “LIGHTS ON NOBODY’S HOME,” a playful take on drinking away heartbreak. He was named as one of Spotify’s 2024 Hot Country Artists to Watch, as well as an Artist To Watch in 2024 by Music Mayhem.

Raised on a farm in Oak Ridge, Louisiana (population: 124), Barham draws upon the lush setting of his small southern hometown in his songs. The son of a farmer and a schoolteacher, Barham began singing in church as a little kid and taught himself to play guitar and write music by the age of 10. At age 18, he made his way to Nashville and began penning tunes for artists in town, dialing in a distinctive balance of compassion, honesty, and humor in his songwriting, while mining inspiration from classic country artists like George Strait as well as heavy hitters in the pop world.

Barham shared his debut single “Preachers Need People” in 2022, which promptly brought viral success. He’s since released several tracks like the irresistibly fun “BREAK IT IN A BAR,” twangy rebound tune “TWO BROKE HEARTS,” and the slow-burning and regretful “BEER BY MY BED,” all of which highlight his homespun storytelling with lived-in detail.

Fans can catch Barham on select tour dates with Adam Doleac, Dierks Bentley, Dylan Scott, and Tyler Braden this spring. Follow Barham on his social media channels for updates and additional info.

SET TO RELEASE NEW TRACK, “BULLETPROOF,” ON FRIDAY

The fire keeps burning forpowerhouse country star Nate Smith, who earned the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Country Airplay chart for the eighth consecutive week. The accomplishment ties Morgan Wallen’s “Last Night,” Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett’s “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” and Lonestar’s “Amazed” for the second-longest No. 1 chart reign since Country Airplay began in 1990. The song also hit No. 1 on the Mediabase/Country Aircheck chart for three weeks.

Nate shared with Billboard, “N8 Weeks At No 1. The crazy thing about this song is that it wasn’t even supposed to come out! It was starting to gain a lot of traction on social media and the demand was high. I’m so lucky to have a team that knew how to strategically release it alongside my debut album by releasing the deluxe version the same day that the debut dropped. This song completely anchored the album. My mind is absolutely blown hearing the news that ‘World On Fire’ has gone #1 for an 8th straight week. Thank you to the fans and thank you country radio!”

Last month, Smith brought a fiery performance of the smash hit to NBC’s TODAY with Hoda & Jenna, watch here. With over 165 million global streams to date, “World On Fire” follows Smith’s Platinum-certified, multi-week No. 1 debut single “Whiskey On You.” Only 19 songs went No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart last year, two of which belong to Smith.

Press raved about Nate Smith, with The Tennessean sharing that it “lends itself well to country’s radio-ready expectations, but also is so well-delivered that it explodes them, too… Smith’s vocal is a flexible instrument that is so genuinely powerful that, aided by intentional musicianship, it achieves songs that feel familiar in a heart-warming and instantly connective manner.” Billboard lauded his “formidable, rangy and raw vocal power” while Holler noted that his range bears “resemblance to country legend Vince Gill, whose vocal control could cause fainting spells three states over,” adding that “this is Smith’s superpower.”

The Paradise, CA native is gearing up to release his new track, “Bulletproof,” on Friday (2.9). Smith shared the song on his social media in recent weeks, garnering millions of views. Pre-add/pre-save the track HERE.

Smith kicked off his headline WORLD ON FIRE TOUR last month, where he’ll stop in 21 major cities across the country including Chicago, Indianapolis, NYC, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and Sacramento.

Sitting next to nana is one of my favorite places to be in the world. I hope when people hear this one, they feel like they’re right there with me, nana, and her Marlboro Reds.”

SELL OUT NASHVILLE, NYC & LONDON SHOWS ON HEADLINE LAST RODEO TOUR

TOURING WITH TIM MCGRAW AND COLE SWINDELL LATER THIS YEAR

Country music trio Restless Road have barreled into 2024 with numerous sold out shows on their headline LAST RODEO TOUR, and now they’re bringing their hit single “Last Rodeo” to country radio. The song impacted country radio yesterday as the No. 1 most-added track of the week with 38 total adds.

Kicking off earlier this month, Restless Road’s headline LAST RODEO TOUR has sold out shows at New York City’s Gramercy Theater and Nashville’s Brooklyn Bowl. MusicRow praised their Nashville appearance, sharing, “The sold-out night was filled with feel-good songs, perfect harmonies and fun cover jam sessions.” The group’s upcoming show in London on March 11 sold out during its pre-sale, prompting them to upgrade to a larger venue, the Lafayette. In addition to their headline LAST RODEO TOUR, Restless Road will return to the UK this spring for C2C: Country to Country music festival.  The guys will hit the road with Tim McGraw and Cole Swindell later this year.

MEGAN MORONEY SHARES BRAND-NEW SONG “NO CALLER ID”

Today, Country phenomenon Megan Moroney premieres her brand-new song “No Caller ID” — the very first glimpse at the hugely anticipated next chapter for the Sony Music Nashville/Columbia Records star. Kicking off what’s sure to be an unstoppable year, the post-breakup ballad is Moroney’s first new music since her massively acclaimed debut album LUCKYGo here to listen to “No Caller ID” now.

Written by MoroneyJessi AlexanderConnie Harrington, and Jessie Jo Dillon, “No Caller ID” further reveals the Georgia-bred artist’s gift for capturing the most nuanced emotions with both intimacy and impact — a talent that recently landed LUCKY on best-of-the-year lists from major outlets like The New York Times and Rolling Stone. To that end, “No Caller ID” tells the all-too-relatable tale of receiving a late-night phone call from an ex you’re trying your best to forget. After shedding light on everything she’s been through (“I’m two months deep in therapy/Been finally getting sleep/My friends quit checking up on me/’Cause I’m back on my feet”), Moroney builds to a gut-punching chorus delivered with aching intensity (“Here you come again and there you go/No coincidence, you always know/When I’m moving on, you move back in/With a half-ass ‘Sorry, how you been?’”). Although she channels everything from longing to frustration to the pain of self-betrayal (“Don’t you get tired of hurting me?/I’m tired of hurting me”), Moroney achieves a quiet sense of triumph in the song’s final moments, briefly turning “No Caller ID” into an anthem of self-protection.

Produced by Moroney’s frequent collaborator Kristian Bush (a multi-award-winning artist/songwriter/producer), “No Caller ID” sets her storytelling to an understated yet powerful sound graced with lush mandolin, delicate but hard-hitting live drums, and endlessly spellbinding layers of electric, acoustic, and steel guitar. While much of the song centers on a stunningly tender vocal performance from Moroney, “No Caller ID” reaches a glorious and soaring peak at the bridge thanks in part to some exhilarating guitar work from Benji Shanks and Justin Schipper.

“No Caller ID” arrives just weeks after Moroney took the stage for CBS’s New Year’s Eve Live: Nashville’s Big Bash. Broadcasting from The Stage on Broadway, the “emo cowgirl” tore through a crowd-thrilling rendition of her RIAA 2X PLATINUM hit single “Tennessee Orange.” As she played a custom Gibson guitar bedazzled with over 3,000 rhinestones, the awestruck audience sang along to every word of Moroney’s No. 1 Country radio smash. Check out the performance here, and go here to read an exclusive PopCulture.com interview in which Moroney reflects on 2023 and all its incredible highlights.

Cementing her status as a veritable hitmaker, Moroney currently has two songs in the Top 30 on Country radio: “I’m Not Pretty” (the magnetic opening track to LUCKY) and “Can’t Break Up Now” (her recent collaboration with Old Dominion). Hailed by Billboard as a “cheeky, defiant clapback,” “I’m Not Pretty” first hit the Country radio airwaves back in August, the same week she premiered its wildly clever video (co-directed herself by Moroney herself) — check it out here.

Moroney’s ever-growing legion of fans may recognize “No Caller ID” from her sold-out THE LUCKY TOUR — a national headline run with stops at major cities and iconic venues coast-to-coast. This spring and summer, Moroney will take the stage at stadiums across the country as support for Kenny Chesney’s SUN DOWN 2024 TOUR.

NASHVILLE, TENN. – Closing out a momentous year with the final weekend of her sold-out THE LUCKY TOUR, Megan Moroney charmed the packed crowd at Nashville’s Brooklyn Bowl Thursday night (12/7).

Revealing a backdrop of neon-lit signs in the shapes of a clover, dice and cowboy boot, Moroney kicked off her set with the rumbling “Another on the Way.” Stamping her LUCKY era by donning a  Stefanie-Naylor custom green sequin dress, she treated fans to a dynamic set, including her current chart-climbing single, “I’m Not Pretty,” “Hair Salon,” “Sleep on My Side,” “Traitor Joe,” and a stripped back acoustic moment with “Girl in the Mirror” and unreleased “No Caller ID.”

A major highlight of the night came when the “emo cowgirl” was surprised by RIAA’s Jackie Jones, Columbia’s Julian Swirsky, and Sony Music Nashville’s Taylor Lindsey with a plaque celebrating her first 2X PLATINUM song – “Tennessee Orange.” Adding to the milestone moment, Moroney was also named one of the RIAA Class of 2023 for receiving her first certified song this year and is one of only two artists in the program across all-genres to receive double PLATINUM. In this Class of 2023, Moroney has the highest solo certification in the Country genre with this record-breaking single. 

Cementing her in-demand headliner status, the venue erupted as she went into “Tennessee Orange.” Taking it all in, Moroney shared “Y’all have completely changed my life the last year and I am not oblivious to the fact that y’all are the sole reason that I get to do this with my life, and I can’t thank you guys enough. I grew up thinking I was going to be an accountant, but because you guys care, I get to do this instead. So literally from the bottom of my heart, thank you so much!”

Sealing the night with a massive sing-along to the chorus of “Tennessee Orange,” Moroney brought it full circle with her title track “Lucky.”

A press darling, Moroney’s songs and debut album LUCKY (Sony Music Nashville/Columbia Records) have graced several sought-after ‘Best Of’ lists:

Los Angeles Times “The 100 best songs of 2023” – #3 “Tennessee Orange”

“such a perfect lyrical conceit about young love and college football that it’s hard to believe it wasn’t already a country standard.” 

New York Times “Best Albums of 2023

“don’t let the inherent perkiness in the country singer Megan Moroney’s voice fool you – she’s an acute conveyor of what it feels like to hold it together while your insides shatter. This debut album has plenty of moving heartbreak songs, but also a few that detail how the person most likely to let you down is … you.” 

Rolling Stone The 100 Best Album of 2023” 

“The exciting mainstream country debut of 2023 belonged to the Georgia-raised Megan Moroney, whose Gen Z iteration of three chords and the truth…”

Associated Press “Top albums of 2023

“…it’s the whole of ‘Lucky’ — and Moroney’s position as a Gen Z songwriter with Taylor Swift-level acuity — that makes her one to watch.”

Looking ahead, she’ll join Kenny Chesney on his SUN DOWN 2024 TOUR throughout next year. For full tour dates and ticketing information, visit meganmoroney.com.

Named a “2023 Artist to Watch” by the likes of Amazon Music, Pandora, and Spotify, as well as an iHeart “On The Verge” Artist and one of CMT’s Next Women of Country for 2023, Moroney released her debut album LUCKY in May and quickly drew major acclaim for the lived-in intimacy, fearless truth-telling, electrifying impact of her songwriting. With her avalanche of accolades including winning Breakthrough Female Video of the Year at the CMT Music Awards, she made her debut appearances on TODAYJimmy Kimmel Live!Good Morning AmericaGMA3: What You Need To Know, and “The 57th Annual CMA Awards.” After opening for Country legends Brooks & Dunn this summer, Moroney has embarked on her sold-out THE LUCKY TOUR for this fall bringing her magnetic live show to iconic venues across the U.S. — all while continuing a meteoric rise that now includes 710 MILLION+ total global streams to date.

Lyrics to ‘Heaven’

This is perfect, come kiss me one more time

I couldn’t dream this up even if I tried

You and me in this moment feels like magic, don’t it

I’m right where I wanna be

Everybody’s talkin’ ‘bout heaven like they just can’t wait to go

Sayin’ how it’s gonna be so good, so beautiful

But lyin’ next to you in this bed with you

I ain’t convinced ‘cause I don’t know how

I don’t know how heaven, heaven could be better than this

I swear you’re an angel sent to this world

What did I do right to deserve you girl

I could stay here forever

I’d be fine if we never had to even leave this room

Everybody’s talkin’ ‘bout heaven like they just can’t wait to go

Sayin’ how it’s gonna be so good, so beautiful

But lyin’ next to you in this bed with you

I ain’t convinced ‘cause I don’t know how

I don’t know how heaven, heaven could be better than this

Everybody’s talkin’ ‘bout heaven like they just can’t wait to go

Sayin’ how it’s gonna be so good, so beautiful

But lyin’ next to you in this bed with you

I ain’t convinced ‘cause I don’t know how

I don’t know how heaven, heaven could be better than this

Could be better than this

I swear this is perfect, come kiss me one more time

TENILLE TOWNES DEBUTS “TRAIN TRACK WORKTAPES” DOCUMENTARY

BEHIND-THE-SCENES LOOK AT GUERRILLA-STYLE RECORDING PROCESS LIVESTREAMS TONIGHT

PERFORMS ON “CMT CAMPFIRE SESSIONS: CHRISTMAS EDITION” 12/6

Reigning CCMA Female Artist of the Year and ACM Award winner Tenille Townes will debut “Train Track Worktapes: The Documentary” tonight (12/5) during a[pp;; special livestream event (7:00 p.m. ET / 6:00 p.m. CT). Tune in HERE.

A behind-the-scenes look at the making of her roots-driven Train Track Worktapes EP, the documentary follows Townes on board the CP Holiday Train where the rhythm and rattle of the very train she traveled on became a source of infinite inspiration.

Train Track Worktapes, whose title harkens back to her stripped-down debut release Living Room Worktapes, was conceptualized, written, and recorded entirely during Townes’ experience on the CP Holiday Train. Covering more than 3,000 miles throughout southern Canada, Townes and her band played more than 65 shows in just over two weeks, sometimes in temperatures as low as -24◦F, right on the train as hydraulic doors lowered and became a stage. The CP Holiday Train benefits local food banks when their need is greatest, as each attendee brings donations to catch the free concert.

Townes, a producer on the project alongside guitarist Jaxon Hargrove, and her band got resourceful with their setup. A suitcase turned into a kickdrum. Tin foil and paper bowls became a shaker. Teacups made the perfect substitute for a triangle. They used boxed wine to cover air vents, so the sound didn’t bleed into the recordings. They borrowed equipment and microphones from the train cars housing the stage and gear and recorded mainly in the train’s caboose, sometimes capturing takes in 20-minute spurts between shows. In “Train Track Worktapes: The Documentary,” fans can watch the magic unfold.

The entertainer returns to the CP Holiday train this year, joining with BRELAND to visit towns around the northern United States through Dec. 11. See the full schedule here.

Townes is also set to appear in “CMT Campfire Sessions: Christmas Edition” tomorrow (12/6) airing at 9:00 p.m. ET / 8:00 p.m. CT on CMT where she’ll share Christmas traditions, what’s on her Christmas list, and perform a mix of traditional carols and original Christmas songs.
