ACM and CMA Male Vocalist and three-time GRAMMY winner Brad Paisley made chart history earlier this year when he scored his ninth #1 country single in a row, and he breaks his own record today as “Then” becomes his tenth consecutive, non-seasonal chart-topper – extending a streak already unmatched by any other country artist in the 19-year history of Nielsen BDS-monitored airplay.
Paisley now stands in rare company, joining such chart titans as Alabama, George Strait, Ronnie Milsap, Earl Thomas Conley, Sonny James, Conway Twitty, and Paisley hero Buck Owens as the only country acts in Billboard history ever to achieve ten or more consecutive chart-toppers.
Co-written by Paisley, Chris DuBois, and Ashley Gorley, “Then” is currently available to fans as a digital single and marks the first smash from Brad’s upcoming eighth album, American Saturday Night, releasing June 30.
American Saturday Night re-teams Paisley with longtime producer Frank Rogers, with whom he’s worked since the release of his million-selling debut, Who Needs Pictures.
In all, Paisley has now amassed 14 career #1 singles with album sales in excess of 10 million units, including his 2x-Platinum 2005 ACM and CMA Album of the Year, Time Well Wasted.
