RaeLynn Celebrates With Burger and Shake After ‘Wildhorse’ Tops Billboard Chart
RaeLynn is taking full advantage of what she calls a "once in a lifetime opportunity" — her new album, Wildhorse, has topped the Billboard Country Albums chart. The release currently sits in the Top 10 on the all-genre Billboard Top 200 chart.
The achievement makes RaeLynn the highest-charting and bestselling female country album release since Maren Morris with Hero, released in June of 2016. Wildhorse's first single, "Love Triangle," is also seeing success, as it's sitting in the Top 30 on Billboard's Country Airplay chart. RaeLynn learned of this thrilling news just moments before walking the 2017 ACM Awards red carpet.
“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for me,” the singer says in a press release. “Having a single that’s in the Top 30 and a No. 1 debut record is a dream come true. I feel overwhelmingly grateful and honored to be included in the company of the handful of other women who have debuted at No. 1 with their first record. The fans who I’ve met over the past five years really showed up for this record. So I share this No. 1 with all of them and my team and country radio. It’s for all of us. Real music that connects is always gonna win!”
At the ACMs, RaeLynn had already decided how she'd be celebrating the milestone. “I’m gonna get an In-N-Out burger, animal style — that’s what I’m doing to celebrate. And I’m getting a shake!” she shared with People. “I’m getting everything bad for me.”
At the time, she hadn't been able to share the big announcement with her military husband, Josh. “He has no idea that his wife’s record went No. 1. That’s a big deal. I think he’s going to freak out and have a heart attack," she remarked.
RaeLynn is currently getting ready for the 2017 RaVe Tour that will take her to various clubs across the U.S. with a setlist that includes her own songs, along with some of her dance party favorites mixed in. The show will also include a live DJ (and tons of glitter). The tour kicks off April 20 in Columbus, Ohio, and wraps up on May 24 in Nashville.
