Big congrats go out to RCA/NASHVILLE VP/Promotion KEITH GALE, Nat'l Dir./Promo NORBERT NIX and the entire staff, as CHRIS YOUNG scores his first-ever #1 single. "Gettin' You Home (The Black Dress Song)" tops the MEDIABASE Country Singles chart this week.
CHRIS was stepping off a plane and called the label, who, along with BNA star KENNY CHESNEY, delivered the good news over the phone. Last week, CHRIS also got a little promotion help from his fellow artists, VALORY's JUSTIN MOORE and RCA labelmate JAKE OWEN.
CHRIS said: "It's a cool feeling to know that you've got other artists pulling for you just as hard as you're pulling for them. When JUSTIN was going for his [No. 1 spot], I was telling everybody I could find, 'You need to go play this record.' Somebody told me today that he put something up on his TWITTER ["Everybody go request my buddy CHRIS YOUNG's song to help him get to #1!"]. I've already texted him to thank him. I said, 'You didn't have to do that.' He was like, 'I just want to see it happen for you.' He's a great, great dude."
