Big Yellow Dog’s Logan Mize Reaches 100 Million Milestone

MusicRow‘s Sherod Robertson with Logan Mize

Logan Mize’s new single “Better Off Gone” is off to a strong start, notching its second week in a row as one of country radio’s most-added songs. It’s a notable achievement for an independent artist, and comes right on top of the news that Mize has topped 100 million streams with his album Come Back Road (Big Yellow Dog Music).

Big Yellow Dog Music co-founder Carla Wallace presented Mize with a plaque marking the 100 million milestone during an intimate celebration and CRS performance supported by Bose, and gushed, “Logan has a unique voice I can’t live without.”

The Clearwater, Kansas, native is currently on tour with Russell Dickerson and Carly Pearce on the Way Back Tour, and he’ll return to Europe as part of the C2C Country to Country 2019 tour in March.
