Matt Stell has landed his first No. 1 on Billboard‘s Country Airplay chart with his debut single, “Prayed for You,” marking the only debut single from an artist to hit the top spot on the Country Airplay chart in 2019. The most recent debut single to hit No. 1 was Jimmie Allen’s “Best Shot,” which reached the pinnacle on Nov. 24, 2018.

Penned by Stell, Ash Bowers, and Allison Veltz, the song has amassed 99 million streams and was certified Gold by the RIAA last month. He discussed the genesis of the tune earlier this year with MusicRow.

“It’s hard to believe that ‘Prayed for You’ is Billboard’s No. 1 country song in the U.S. this week,” exclaimed Stell. “I won’t be able to ever thank my fellow writers, Ash Bowers and Allison Veltz, and my RECORDS/Arista Nashville/Wide Open/GCE team enough.”

“Prayed For You” along with “Home In A Hometown,” a collaboration with Jimmie Allen, can be found on Stell’s EP, Everywhere But On.
