Travis Denning Makes History as “After a Few” Hits No. 1

Travis Denning Makes History as “After a Few” Hits No. 1

Travis Denning’s “After a Few” is the little engine that could.

After 65 weeks, the tune has reached No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, marking the longest trip to the top. Jimmie Allen’s “Make Me Want To” previously held the record at 58 weeks. In addition, “After a Few” marks the longest tenure a song has had on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, surpassing the 59-week run of “Make Me Want To.”

Travis released the single in January 2019. Penned by Travis, Kelly Archer and Justin Weaver, the single is featured on Travis’ new six-song EP, Beer’s Better Cold (May 15).

“I’m so grateful for this number one,” says Travis. “To see it get up the charts was a dream come true that I first had when I was 14 years old. This has only helped fuel the fire to want to get back on the road and sing country music for some country lovin’ people.”

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
