Darius Rucker began his solo Country career in 2008 with his “Learn To Live” album being released September 16th. The album had immediate impact on Country radio with three (#1) Country hits. The album hit (#1) on the Vault 60 Albums Chart a few months ago and also produced the (#2) Vault hit, “History In The Making”. As of this week, “Learn To Live” has been certified 2x Platinum on Byrdbored. Rucker also scores a new peak for his song, “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It”, which moves to (#7) on the Vault Singles Chart. With Darius set for a new album in February 2022, I would expect his older music to continue to be on a roll in the coming months.
MercyMe move to (#2) on the SongByrd 60 Singles Chart with “Whiplash” this week and in the process score their 16th Gold single on Byrdbored. The group is celebrating their 20th year as a band this year which means the guys will be strong contenders for the Nest Of Fame. “Whiplash” is the Christian Contemporary group’s fourth Byrdy Dozen hit from their former (#2) album, “Inhale (Exhale)”, which has been certified Platinum.
