On February 24th, 2001 a little known country music singer scored his first #1 song with his third single “But For The Grace of God,” from his self-titled debut album. Fifteen years later, almost to the day, the four-time Grammy Award winner and multiple ACM nominee celebrates another #1, only this time setting not only a new career high, but an historic mark on Billboard’s All-Time Country Airplay Chart.
“Break on Me,” the second release from Urban’s upcoming album ripCORD, marks his 19th #1 song on Billboard’s All-Time Country Airplay Chart. This moves Urban into #8 all-time, moving him ahead of Garth Brooks. The song also marks Urban’s 20th #1 and his 4th consecutive (dating back to 2013’s “We Were Us”) on the Aircheck/Mediabase Country Chart.
“Music for me has always been about expression and connection,” said Urban. “So to have all of these songs connect in the way they have hits me on so many different levels. I’m constantly inspired by the passionate support I get from all of the fans, my friends at country radio and of course Capitol Records. “Break On Me” holds a very special place in my heart for personal reasons, and for the incredible timing of it hitting number one almost to the day of my very first number one! Truly divine.”
“Break On Me” is the follow up to “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16”, and the second #1 song from ripCORD.
