Country artist Morgan Wallen makes history
Famed country artist Morgan Wallen has officially made history, folks!! His new album One Thing At A Time has 36 songs and is taking over the Billboard charts! The video above is from his 2022 Billboard Awards performance. And for the notes on his success, here’s a snippet from a report on Yahoo News:
Morgan Wallen has accomplished a chart coup with his new album One Thing At A Time, which was released on March 3. On Monday, Billboard reported that the 36-track record has become the artist’s second number-one album, while the single “Last Night” is his first number one track on the Billboard Hot 100. Wallen currently claims five spots on the Hot 100 chart, including “Last Night,” “One Thing At A Time” (at #10), “Thinkin’ Bout Me” (at #9), “You Proof” (At #8), and “Thought You Should Know” (at #7).Holding half the spots on the Hot 100 chart is an unprecedented success for a country artist. Taylor Swift didn’t achieve the feat of five or more spots until she crossed over to pop (though of course, she’s the only artist ever to hold all ten slots).
Wallen is only the sixth artist to have done so at all, alongside Swift, Drake, 21 Savage, Juice WRLD, and The Beatles. He’s the first to hold the #1 spot on the Hot 100 and Hot Country charts simultaneously since Swift’s “All Too Well (Taylor’s Version),” and the first unaccompanied male artist to do so in 42 years. Only 20 tracks in the chart’s history have ever done so—that list includes songs like “Islands In The Stream,” “Rhinestone Cowboy,” and “9 To 5.”
Morgan Wallen is known to put on great shows and even kicked out some rowdy audience members who were fighting one time. He’s got a ton of fans and clearly, which is obvious by his success with the latest album.
