TOP SHELF

For the 5th straight week, @LilNasX & @BillyRayCyrus (Team BMG) top the @Billboard Hot 100 with their remix of #OldTownRoad. To date, the remix version has more than 153 million streams on #Spotify. The original rendition has more than 193 million streams. @MarissaRMoss published this piece via the @LATimes the other day that's worth a read about how/why #Nashville #CountryRadio has "snubbed" the most popular song on the planet.

ON THE KARAOKE MACHINE

This is a great content piece where @LilNasX explains the story behind every lyric of #OldTownRoad - anyone who questions the sincerity of this song, or the intentions behind it should watch this before jumping to narrow-minded/ignorant/stupid/racist judgments.

With new partner Marathon Petroleum fueling the 2019 tour, both nights were the type of high-energy, bad-ass rock-show events we've come to expect from the #ACMs #ArtistOfTheDecade. Aldean also announced that he is adding a special date to his tour fueled by Marathon, hitting Globe Life Park (home of MLB's Texas Rangers) in Arlington, TX on October 11th - he will the be the last music act to perform at the venue (Rangers are opening a brand new ballpark in 2020!

ALL ACCESS

DYK: @EricChurch is at the top of both Pollstar’s LIVE75 and Global Concert Pulse Charts this week. On both charts, Church sits ahead of blockbuster tours by artists including Billy Joel, Fleetwood Mac, Elton John, Justin Timberlake, Metallica, Michael Bublé, Bob Seger, Cher and KISS, among others – all of which boast higher average ticket prices than the Double Down Tour. Church also stands as the only Country artist in the Top 15 of the Global Concert Pulse chart. It is criminal that he hasn't won an #EntertainerOfTheYearAward yet .
