Breakout artist Bailey Zimmerman continues to make waves in country music.
His platinum-selling viral hit, “Fall In Love,” topped the charts at country radio this week, becoming the fastest debut single to reach No. 1 at country radio since 2015.
The heartbreak anthem, which was penned by Zimmerman alongside Gavin Lucas and Austin Shawn, is the first debut song to make its way to No. 1 on the Country Airplay chart this year.
“Big thanks to all of y’all that have made this possible, without every single one of you, I wouldn’t be the man I am today🔥,” Zimmerman wrote on social media upon hearing the news. “Also huge thanks to my radio people out there that have believed in me and this song, grateful for y’all❤️ Cheers to 2023🥂”
Fans and fellow artists flooded the comments section to share congratulatory messages.
“Couldn’t be more proud,” Nate Smith applauded, while Lainey Wilson shared, “Let’s go!!”
With an already impressive year, Zimmerman also surpassed the milestone of earning more than 1 billion career streams. He achieved this feat not even two years after he released his first song.
“Rock And A Hard Place” will be the Illinois native’s next single and will also be performed on Zimmerman’s national TV debut on Good Morning America on December 27th. Last month, the song was certified Platinum by the RIAA.
Bailey Zimmerman will be hitting the road with superstar Morgan Wallen on his upcoming 2023 One Night At A Time World Tour. The tour will open overseas in New Zealand and Australia before making its way back to the US for a show in Milwaukee, WI.
During the upcoming tour, Zimmerman will have the opportunity to perform at several historic venues including stadium stops at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium, Chicago’s Wrigley Field, LA’s SoFi Stadium and Boston’s Fenway Park.

Just weeks ago, Zimmerman made history with the release of his debut full-length project, Leave The Light On. The nine-track release went on to become the most-streamed all-genre debut of the year and the biggest streaming country debut of all time.
In addition, the twenty-two-year-old accompanied Zach Bryan and Luke Combs as the only country artists this year to earn more than 1 million streams on each track during street week alone.
Arriving at No. 2 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and No. 9 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart, Leave The Light On also ranked No. 2 on Billboard’s Canadian Country Albums chart and No. 8 on the all-genre Canadian Albums Chart.
