Congrats to CAPITOL/NASHVILLE SVP/Promotion STEVE HODGES, VP/Promotion SHANE ALLEN and the rest of the staff, as LADY ANTEBELLUM tops the MEDIABASE Country Singles chart this week with "I Run To You."
This is the trio's first number one single. The song has sold 450,000 downloads to date and has helped double weekly sales totals of the band's self-titled debut album.
LADY A's DAVE HAYWOOD said: "This is absolutely surreal. A number one is something you never think will actually happen, and it is certainly something that we will never forget! We are so overwhelmed from the support of the fans and country radio, and we want to give a special shout out to [co-writer] TOM DOUGLAS for pushing us as songwriters and challenging us to put these beautiful lyrics into a song."
