As one of country music’s most compelling rising stars, Brown’s latest album, Experiment, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart during the fall of 2018. With that honor, Brown joined Carrie Underwood and Jason Aldean as the only country artists to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The singer is also the first male country artist to debut at the top with a sophomore release in 24 years. The last artist to equal that feat was Tim McGraw in 1994.
The Academy of Country Music has nominated Brown’s latest hit, “Heaven,” for 2019 Song of the Year. Brown is also scheduled to perform on the national televised award show that will air on Sunday, April 7th.
