Bailey Zimmerman scores fastest-rising country debut No 1 single since 2015

“Fall In Love” tops the country charts

Bailey Zimmerman continues to dominate the country music scene. His Platinum-certified hit “Fall In Love” topped the country radio charts this week as the fastest debut single to reach No. 1 at country radio since 2015. Co-written by Zimmerman alongside frequent collaborators Gavin Lucas and Austin Shawn, it marks the first debut hit to make it all the way to No. 1 on the Country Airplay chart this year.

The news of this record-making No. 1 comes as Zimmerman soars past the impressive career milestone of more than one billion career streams since he began releasing music less than two years ago. His next radio single, “Rock And A Hard Place,” is impacting radio now and set for a national TV debut on Good Morning America on December 27th, having also already received Platinum certification by the RIAA last month.

In addition, Zimmerman will be heading out on the road with global superstar Morgan Wallen for his 2023 One Night At A Time World Tour, kicking off overseas in New Zealand and Australia next March before returning stateside in April. The 39-date trek will visit multiple legendary venues including stadium stops at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium, Chicago’s Wrigley Field, LA’s SoFi Stadium and Boston’s Fenway Park before wrapping on October 7th at Tacoma Dome in Washington.

In October, Zimmerman shattered records with his first full-length release, Leave The Light On via Warner Music Nashville, becoming not only the most-streamed all-genre debut of the year, but also the biggest streaming country debut of all time. He also joined Zach Bryan and Luke Combs as the only country artists this year to earn more than one million streams on each track during street week alone. The EP arrived at No. 2 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and No. 9 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart. A worldwide success, the EP also debuted at No. 2 on Billboard’s Canadian Country Albums chart and No. 8 on their all-genre Canadian Albums Chart.
