RaeLynn Lands at the Top of the Country Albums Chart With ‘WildHorse’
RaeLynn's debut album WildHorse is off to a great start: The record has nabbed the top spot on Billboard's Country Albums chart in its first week, and debuted in the Top 10 (No. 9) on the all-genre Top Album Sales chart.
Thanks to its high-charting debut week, WildHorse is the highest-charting album release from a female country artists since Maren Morris debuted her first album, Hero, in June of 2016.
“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for me. Having a single that’s in the Top 30 and a No. 1 debut record is a dream come true," RaeLynn says in a press release. "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," the singer adds. "It’s for all of us. Real music that connects is always gonna win!”
RaeLynn co-wrote 11 of the 12 tracks on WildHorse, which is her first full-length project. The record was produced by Jimmy Robbins and Nicolle Galyon. In RaeLynn's hometown of Houston, Texas, its release day (March 24) was dubbed "RaeLynn Day;" the singer marked the occasion by making her first donation to the new RaeLynn Diabetes Fund at the Texas Children’s Hospital.
