Blake Shelton, Ashley Monroe, Brett Eldredge and Cole Swindell have all scored #1s
Warner Music Nashville is celebrating a little March Madness of its own with three songs by four of the company’s recording artists reaching No. 1 this month. WMN is the first label group to land three singles in the No. 1 spot this year.
Blake Shelton, Ashley Monroe, Brett Eldredge and Cole Swindell took the top spot on the Billboard and Mediabase country songs charts in three of the last four weeks. Shelton and Monroe’s “Lonely Tonight” duet reached No. 1 on March 2nd, Edredge took “Mean to Me” to No. 1 on March 16th and Swindell’s “Ain’t Worth the Whiskey” tops both charts this week.
“I am so proud of our immensely talented artists and our incredible promotion staffs who worked tirelessly on these singles,” WMN President and CEO John Esposito said. “To capture three No. 1 singles from four different artists in only one month is an amazing accomplishment and highlights our passionate and hardworking teams. I am proud every day to be a part of this kick ass family!”
Shelton and Monroe started the run with “Lonely Tonight.” It was Shelton’s record 14th consecutive No. 1 hit and Monroe’s first. Eldredge and Swindell also are on their own consecutive streaks, each earning their third straight No. 1 singles from their most recent albums. Also of note: Eldredge and Swindell wrote or co-wrote all those hits.
