Country music quartet Little Big Town have finally gotten their first-ever number one single! Their Summer smash hit “Pontoon” landed at number one on the Mediabase charts this week. The song was already certified platinum by the RIAA for selling more than one million copies digitally since its release. It’s the lead song from their upcoming album “Tornado” out on September 11th.
It’s a big deal for the group, who have been in the business for quite some time now. Kimberly Schlapman shares:
“After working towards this for 13 years, it’s an even sweeter reward than we dreamed! We’re just soaking it all in and it feels so good.”
Her fellow band member Karen Fairchild added:
“We’ll be celebrating this for a while. We can’t say thank you enough to Country radio, the fans and our whole team for giving us our first number one!”
The group’s album is still up for pre-orders right now on littlebigtown.com.
