Lady A Says a Two-Week Stay at Number-1 Almost Feels Unreal

Lady A Says a Two-Week Stay at Number-1 Almost Feels Unreal

Lady A not only captured the number-one spot on the country music airplay charts for the first week of the new year, they’re still there for week 2!

“Champagne Night” becomes the first chart-topper of 2021, and now it’s also the first multi-week number-one song of the year.

Hillary Scott, of Lady A, says “Since we started the journey with ‘Champagne Night’ every step of the process has been so special to us.”

In responding to the news that the song is number-one again, Hillary added, “We couldn’t be more thankful for all the support from our fans and friends at Country radio and to Songland for believing in the song as much as we did. I can’t believe we get to start 2021 off with a multi-week number one….it almost feels unreal!”

Having the number-one song will allow Hillary and bandmates Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood a moment of celebration together.

While they experience the highs of their career together, they also keep each other going through the lows. Hillary admits that being a trio last year was probably more important than ever, “We’ve leaned into each other so much…just, that’s what you do when you go through hardship. You hopefully have those around you that your closest to that you can link arm in arm with to walk through the hard times, you know.”

Well, here’s a better new year, and a bunch of champagne nights in 2021

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
