Gold and Platinum-selling artist Brett Eldredge has found somethin’ he’s good at, and that’s selling more albums than any artist in any genre this week as Brett Eldredge tops Billboard’s Top Albums Sales and Top Country Albums charts. It is Eldredge’s first time to top the all-genre sales chart and his second No. 1 country album with over 36,00 in total sales and over 45,000 with track and streaming equivalents added.
“Some of the best memories of my music career have been celebrating big moments, we celebrate and enjoy them all,” said Eldredge. “I literally have a bottle of champagne in my hand right now! I’d like to say thank you to everyone who worked so hard on this album, and most importantly I want to thank the fans who have been streaming and buying songs, from the first single to the full album. Cheers everyone and sincerely, thank you!”
Of the amazing accomplishment Warner Music Nashville Chairman and CEO John Esposito said, “With his new album Brett has firmly planted himself amongst the leading male vocalists and as a cornerstone artist in this format. His voice is sophisticated yet fun and underscores the beauty of his amazing songwriting. Brett’s new album travels a deep path of human emotions…bright and dark. It will be talked about as a masterpiece for years to come.”
Eldredge, celebrating not only the new album but also his new single “The Long Way,” was seen everywhere last week making several television appearances, including a takeover of Rockefeller Plaza for the TODAY Citi Concert Series and a performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Fans can see Eldredge again later this week on primetime television during “CMA Fest,” airing Wednesday, Aug. 16 (8:00-11:00 PM ET) on ABC. Eldredge will perform “Somethin’ I’m Good At,” the first single released from the new album. This summer fans can see live performances of their favorite tracks from the album, with “Superhero” starting the show, as he continues on the road for Luke Bryan’s “Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day” tour.
