Bailey Zimmerman scored his third consecutive No. 1 hit with “Religiously,” marking an impressive achievement in his career. Notably, Zimmerman is now the fastest artist to have his first three singles peak atop the Country Aircheck chart since Sam Hunt in 2015. In fact, he is the fourth fastest artist to accomplish this feat since 2000.

The achievement coincides with the excitement surrounding his highly-anticipated headlining tour, aptly named RELIGIOUSLY. THE TOUR, which quickly sold out.

Third Consecutive No.1

The country star took to social media on Monday (Sept. 25) to celebrate the impressive milestones with a video message to fans. 

“I CANT THANK YALL ENOUGH😭❤️” Zimmerman captioned the clip. “Today has been a BIG FREAKIN DAY!!! The love y’all have shown me the past 3 years is MIND BLOWING… and without it I wouldn’t be where I’m at🤯 so thank you to every one of you that has had my back❤️ i will continue to try and give you the best version of me that I can.🔥”

In a heartfelt video message to his devoted fan base, Zimmerman graciously thanked his fans for their support from his tour bus.

“Big day, you want to know why? Because ‘Religiously’ is No. 1 at freakin’ Country radio in the U.S.. Let’s go! And not only is ‘Religiously’ No. 1 at Country radio, but y’all sold out ‘Religiously: the freakin’ tour,’” Zimmerman exclaimed. 

He continued, “Everything that’s happened in my life, everything that’s going on now, the music, the tours, everything is because of y’all and I can’t thank you enough. This is insane and my life has become a dream, truly. I am so grateful to have y’all and call y’all friends, fans and family. Let’s keep doing this, third No. 1 in a row and let’s keep it rolling. I freakin’ love y’all, see you next year on religiously the tour, sold out! Let’s go!”
