Jameson Rodgers just earned his very first chart-topping single as an artist with his breakout hit “Some Girls.”
The song reached the No.1 spot on both the Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase/Country Aircheck charts, making Rodgers’ decade-long dream come true.
“When I moved to Nashville in 2010, I had a dream. I’m living my dream right now thanks to country radio, amazing fans and the best team any artist could ask for,” said Rodgers. “I just feel so blessed for the opportunity and look forward to hopefully many more.”
After 49 weeks on the charts, “Some Girls” is the first solo male debut single to top the charts in one year. It also set the record for the longest climb to No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart for a debut single.
The Gold-certified hit is featured on Rodgers’ self-titled debut EP and has raked in over 115 million on-demand streams to date.
