Chart-Topping Vocalist Earns Fourth Consecutive #1 With GOLD-Certified Smash
Nashville, TN (June 25, 2013) – Jake Owen is all over Country radio this week with his fastest rising single to date “Anywhere With You” topping both the Mediabase Country Chart and Billboard Country Chart. The catchy song has impressively logged the biggest weekly audience sum with 43.8 million impressions since the Billboard Country Airplay Chart switched to audience-based rankings in 2005. Marking his fourth consecutive #1 from the chart-topping BAREFOOT BLUE JEAN NIGHT album, “Anywhere With You” has been certified GOLD by the RIAA for selling over 500,000 copies. The RCA Nashville project has delivered back-to-back #1’s with multi-week hits - the DOUBLE PLATINUM “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” and PLATINUM “Alone With You” – along with the GOLD-certified hit “The One That Got Away” that he co-wrote.
“I’m incredibly amazed at what the Barefoot album has done,” shares Jake Owen. “To have four #1’s in a row … I’m so thankful to country radio and my fans. This wouldn’t have happened without you and I can’t wait to share new music with everyone!”
