“Religiously” tops the country radio charts

Skyrocketing country star Bailey Zimmerman has earned his third consecutive No. 1 at country radio this week with “Religiously.” This achievement makes Zimmerman the fastest artist to have his first three singles peak atop the Country Aircheck chart since Sam Hunt in 2015 and the fourth fastest since 2000. “Religiously” follows his 2x-Platinum, six-week No. 1 “Rock and a Hard Place” and his 2x Platinum-certified debut, “Fall In Love.”

Boasting more than 287 million streams, “Religiously” is the title track from the 23-year-old’s full-length debut, Religiously. The Album. The project arrived in May as the biggest streaming debut album of the year across all genres as well as the biggest streaming country debut of all time. The album landed Top 3 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and No. 7 on the all-genre Billboard 200.

Last month, the country star released Religiously. The Acoustic Sessions, sharing five stripped-down tracks from the album to YouTube.

Zimmerman also made history as his career-launching EP, Leave The Light On, became last year’s most-streamed all-genre debut. Billboard ranked him the No. 2 Top New Country Artist and No. 4 Top New Artist across all genres, and he was named to multiple Year End Best Of lists.

The young superstar has already surpassed three billion global streams to date. His stadium-ready country rock is on display as he supports Morgan Wallen on one of the biggest country tours of the year, continuing in Canada through the end of the month before returning stateside for dates into November. He is also selling out the North America dates on his headlining Religiously. The Tour, which kicks off February 2024.
