Tyler Hubbard charts his second Number One hit as a solo artist this week with “Dancin' In The Country,” which claims the top spot on the Mediabase/Country Aircheck chart. Tyler co-wrote the song with Keith Urban, Ross Copperman and Jon Nite. It's the second single off his self-titled debut solo album which was released in January.
Tyler said, “Having a second No. 1, one year to the day after my debut solo single was released, is really incredible. It’s been an amazing year, and I’m thankful to Country Radio and the fans for embracing my music, and to Keith, Ross and Jon for sharing their creative genius with me.”
Tyler had some indication that “Dancin' In The Country” was going to be a big hit once he began playing it live in concert. He tells us: “I see every time we start playing ‘Dancin’ In The Country,’ the energy just goes through the roof, you know. It just gets wilder and wilder, and it feels like the set hits a climax, and it’s really, really fun. The crowd goes crazy, and it’s a just a good way to end the set. Everybody leaves the show really happy. Everybody’s singing that song. It’s sort of an earworm. Even myself, I’m singing it for the next two hours after the set, just because it’s stuck in my head. So, it’s a special song and it’s a fun one to leave the fans with.”
Tyler celebrated his first year as a solo artist over the weekend when he surprised fans with a 75-minute pop-up show at Nashville honky tonk The Stage on lower Broadway on Saturday (May 20th) night.
He will play the main stage at Nissan Stadium during CMA Fest on June 8th.
