Morgan Wallen continues to make Billboard chart history with songs from his new album, One Thing At A Time.

According to Billboard, the country superstar earned three spots inside the Top 10 on the Country Airplay chart (dated April 29), including “Thought You Should Know” (No. 7), “Last Night” (No. 8), and “One Thing At A Time” (No. 9). 

Wallen is the first artist to achieve this chart feat since the Billboard Country Airplay chart launched in January of 1990.

In addition to making history on the Billboard Country Airplay Chart, Wallen also achieved a 10th week at No.1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Chart with his massive crossover hit, “Last Night.” 

He previously had a 19-week run atop the chart with “You Proof,” which is also included on his One Thing At A Time album, and an 11-week run with “Wasted On You” from his record-breaking Dangerous album. 

Wallen is the first solo artist, and second artist overall, with three 10-week-plus reigns at the top of the Hot Country Songs Chart. The publication reports that Florida Georgia Line was first, followed by Luke Combs and Sam Hunt, who have two each.  

“Last Night,” “Thought You Should Know” and “One Thing At A Time” all appear on Morgan Wallen’s third studio album, One Thing At A Time. 

One Thing At A Time, which arrived on March 3, showcases Wallen’s wide range of musical influences as well as combines his love for country, rock and hip-hop.

The project features 36 tracks, including duets with Eric Church, HARDY and ERNEST. Wallen’s sister Ashlyne also makes an appearance on the project, singing harmonies on the song titled “Outlook.” He also pays tribute to his son, Indigo (Indie) Wilder Wallen, on the project with the tune “Dying Man,” which he often dedicates to Indie during his live concerts.

“This record represents the last few years of my life, the highs and the lows,” Wallen previously shared in a statement. “It also brings together the musical influences that have shaped me as an artist – country, alternative and hip-hop.”

Additionally, Wallen recently earned four nominations for the upcoming 58th Academy of Country Music Awards, including Entertainer Of The Year, Male Artist Of The Year, Song Of The Year (“Sand In My Boots”) and Artist-Songwriter Of The Year.

Co-hosted by Dolly Parton and Garth Brooks, the 58th Academy Of Country Music Awards will stream live exclusively on Prime Video from Ford Center at The Star in Frisco, Texas on Thursday, May 11 at 8/7c.

Wallen is currently in the midst of the U.S. leg of his One Night At A Time World Tour, which kicked off with two sold-out shows at American Family Field in Milwaukee, Wisconsin earlier this month. 

The One Night At A Time World Tour marks Wallen’s first-time ever headlining stadiums across the globe for multiple nights. 

Marking one of the largest tours of 2023 so far and the biggest tour of Wallen’s career, the 58-show trek will visit 30 stadiums, plus arenas, amphitheaters and festivals to fans across four countries and two continents. 

The North American leg of the trek will wrap up on October 7 at Tacoma Dome in Washington.

The tour, which kicked off in March with shows overseas in New Zealand and Australia, will return overseas this fall with stops in Canada before heading to The O2 in London on Dec. 3.

Produced by Live Nation, the trek will feature support from ERNEST and Bailey Zimmerman on all dates. HARDY and Parker McCollum will also appear on select dates.

In an effort to give back to those in need, Wallen will donate $3 of every ticket sold on the U.S. dates to the Morgan Wallen Foundation. Established in 2021, the foundation benefits causes near and dear to the superstar’s heart, including organizations such as Greater Good Music, Children Are People, the Salvation Army, and the National Museum of African American Music.

Additionally, Morgan Wallen will also perform at several festivals this summer such as Gulf Coast Jam, Carolina Country Music Fest, We Fest, Big Valley Jamboree, YQM Country Fest, and more.
