Jackson Dean‘s debut single, “Don’t Come Lookin’,” has hit the top of the country radio charts.
With this achievement, the 22-year-old also becomes the youngest male artist in Country Aircheck and Radio & Records’ history to top the charts with their first single and the fourth youngest overall behind Gabby Barrett, Kelsea Ballerini, and Marie Osmond.
Paying homage to freewheeling independence, the gravelly track has been featured on Netflix’s The Ice Road soundtrack and Yellowstone, and it was recently covered by Kelly Clarkson on The Kelly Clarkson Show. Garnering more than 80 million on-demand streams to date, “Don’t Come Lookin'” averages five million streams a week.
“It’s hard to wrap my head around,” Dean shares. “I wrote this with Luke Dick, my co-producer, as a way of explaining who I am and what I value to people. I never thought of the song in any terms except trying to show people–as a new artist–who I am. The idea that it’s No. 1 tells me a lot more people value that sense of getting out there and getting lost than I’d ever imagined, which is pretty cool.”
The hit single appears on Dean’s debut album, Greenbroke, released earlier this year via Big Machine Records. Co-produced by Dick, Dean co-wrote every song on the 10-track collection.
This year, the Maryland native has played more than 110 shows, made his Grand Ole Opry debut, more than doubled his fans across social platforms, partnered with the FFA and Ram Trucks, and played a variety of festival slots, including Stagecoach, Austin City Limits, and more.
