Rising country artist George Birge’s single “Mind on You” has become his first No. 1 on the Mediabase country chart. It has also debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 chart at No. 88. To celebrate, a new remix version of the song featuring charlieonnafriday and Kidd G is out now.
Birge reacted on socials to the news saying “My FIRST NUMBER ONE on the LAST day of the year… Y’all I have dreamed of this day my entire life and there were at least a hundred sleepless nights where I thought it might never come true. Y’all never quit on me and believed in me even when I didn’t and today we have the NUMBER ONE SONG IN AMERICA…”
Birge’s “Mind on You” is RECORDS Nashville’s third No. 1. Birge is also one of five artists who will be featured on the upcoming CRS 2024’s New Faces of Country Music Show.
“We are so thrilled for George Birge and this major accomplishment,” says Josh Easler, Executive Vice President of Promotion & Commercial Strategy at RECORDS Nashville. “His years of hard work and honing his craft have paid off with his first number one single. I’m proud of George, and am proud of the RECORDS team as well for their incredible efforts.”
Another rising artist at RECORDS, singer-songwriter/rapper Dax, whose new single “To Be A Man” (featuring Darius Rucker) was just released in December, has begun his ascent thanks to robust streaming numbers, with 100 million streams and 400,000 singles sold to date. Following his recent performance debut on NBC’s The Today Show, the track also returned to No. 1 on the country iTunes chart. Dax has over 10 million followers on TikTok and close to six million YouTube subscribers. His 2022 single, “Dear Alcohol” (featuring Elle King), also earned him his first Platinum certification, with “To Be A Man” rapidly approaching Gold status.
“We are thrilled with these milestones from two very deserving artists,” says David Enriquez, Senior Vice President at RECORDS. “So much of today’s market is driven by moments and trends, but George Birge and Dax’s successes were years in the making and we couldn’t be happier to be partners in the process of helping develop two amazing acts who will be around for years to come.”
