NASHVILLE, TENN. – Music buyers take a stand to show that Traditional Country Music hasn’t gone anywhere. It’s loved, alive, and well, as the incredible new project American Grandstand landed its first week on Billboard’s Top Current Country Albums chart at No. 10. It is No. 1 on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart, and No.1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Album Chart for the week of July 29, 2017.
Not since George & Tammy and Conway & Loretta has there been a vocal duet performance like Rhonda Vincent & Daryle Singletary. This week marks yet another indication that buyers love the authentic, unaltered voices of two of the greatest singers in this generation of country music.
“The New Queen of Bluegrass” Rhonda Vincent and country hitmaker Daryle Singletary share their thoughts as they celebrate being at the top of the charts!
Daryle says, “I just want to say how excited Rhonda and I are on the chart debut of American Grandstand. We really didn’t know what to expect, but this CD has charted way beyond our expectations and we can’t say thanks enough to every single person that supported our efforts and purchased the new duet project. God Bless Country music and Country music fans. We love ya’ll!!”
“This is so special! I don’t know what makes me happier, #1 on the Billboard Bluegrass Charts or a Top 10 Album on the Current Country charts!” says Rhonda. “Either way, I am thrilled beyond words, and thankful to each of you who purchased and sent your love for this new music! Thank you for your incredible support of Traditional Country music, and if you don’t have American Grandstand please go get it!”
This chart-topping project was released on Upper Management Music, and features 12 amazing songs; with originals like the title song written by Rhonda Vincent, along with country classics like the first single “One,” that was written by hit country writer/performer Ed Bruce and originally performed by country legends George Jones and Tammy Wynette.
This dynamic duo is off to a blockbuster start, with rave reviews, and a momentum that started with their numerous Nashville performances at the CMA Music Fest, Music City Roots, and The Grand Ole Opry.
“American Grandstand” is available now at AmericanGrandstand.com and wherever music is sold.
