Australian country music trio the McClymonts are getting one of their Christmas presents a few weeks early. Their first single from “Wrapped Up Good” is now an official top 30 hit, landing at number 28 on the United States Breakout Singles Chart. It’s their highest charting single to date in North America.
Brooke, Sam, and Mollie found out the news while back home in Australia, spending time with family for the holidays. Sam McClymont was pretty excited about the news:
“We are thrilled to hit #28 this week! The support we have received in America for our music has been overwhelming. We are so excited to tour again next year and release more songs from the record Wrapped Up Good.”
The trio is one of Australia’s hottest acts, but are now trying to break out in the United States. In June, they took on the challenge of moving to Nashville, Tennessee, and releasing their album “Wrapped Up Good” in North America. The album had previously out-sold Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw and even Kenny Chesney in Australia. In September, the trio made their Grand Ole Opry debut and were quickly invited back to perform again.
They’ve had an exciting 2011, but are planning even more for 2012. They’re lining up tour dates across the United States for the new year.

Billboard.com is shining their spotlight on Australian country music trio The McClymonts this week. The major website discusses in detail their move from Australia to Nashville, and the differences in the two country music markets. They were one of the top acts in Australia and are climbing the charts in the United States with “Wrapped Up Good.”
The McClymonts have been working non-stop since the August release of their album “Wrapped Up Good,” which earned the girls a Country Music Association (CMA) award at the International Media Reception that I was at. CMA Chairman Steve Moore presented the trio with the 2011 CMA Global Artist Of The Year award to the surprised group.
The McClymonts were part of the Tootsie’s Birthday Bash line-up this week in Nashville, celebrating the 51st year of the legendary honky tonk. They joined The Roys and the Kentucky Headhunters in the celebration performances.

Brooke stated, ”Wow, after five months of living here in Nashville, to have picked up the CMA Global Country Artist Award is an absolute honour.”
The band is reaping in great success in the United States, following their success in Australia. They have won “Best Group” at the Country Music Awards of Australia four times in the past five years. They opened for Jason Aldean in 2010 and released their CD Wrapped Up Good earlier this year.
Nashville’s famous Tootsies Orchid Lounge has announced additional performers for its 51st birthday bash celebration. While Kid Rock will headline the November 23rd birthday before his sold-out appearance at the Ryman Auditorium, joining the party on the outdoor stage are the McClymonts, The Roys and the Kentucky Headhunters. The three groups will play the outdoor stage starting at noon CST on the outdoor stage on Broadway.
“Every time I end up at Tootsies its a good night, and I don’t expect this night to be any different. It’s cool to be celebrating their birthday party with them; I like parties and seem to excel in that type of atmosphere,” said Kid Rock.
The party will continue after his show at the Ryman Auditorium that same night. More bands will be announced as the date comes closer.
The first birthday party celebration was held last year in the 50th year of the opening of the legendary venue. The reception went over so well that it’s turned into an annual event on Broadway.
