First Week of Single Downloads Lands Highest Debut
On Soundscans All-Genre Digital Track and Digital Song Charts
(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) Multimedia entertainer and acclaimed singer/songwriter Toby Keith has had some enormous hits in his career, and his latest single is on a pace to join his most successful releases ever. "She Never Cried In Front Of Me" has been the most-added song at major market Country radio stations.
Additionally, the song leaped into the top 30 on the USA Today/Country Aircheck/Mediabase chart. And the first week of downloads for the single garnered the highest debut on Soundscans all-genre Digital Track Chart and the Digital Song Chart. The song is the fastest moving single in the nation and may soon be among the foremost releases of his career.
The chart-shaking appeal of "She Never Cried In Front Of Me" starts with a Keith and Bobby Pinson-penned lament over a broken relationship, and is wrapped in one of his most dramatic and subtly emotional vocal performances ever.
"Yeah! Superstar quality song from one of our biggest stars in the format, win-win for all!" proclaims Ginny Rogers, music director at WKLB in Boston, while program director at WWYZ in Hartford, Pete Salant, adds "This song will be another Toby perennial that goes down in the annals of history with the powerfully seductive emotional interpretation unique to Toby. No one else has this much control over our heart strings."
As Keiths single races up the chart in advance of his next full studio album due Oct. 28, the Oklahoman is also preparing for the Aug. 8 release of his second major feature film, Beer For My Horses. Written by Keith with costar Rodney Carrington, the movie follows his widely-praised cinema debut Broken Bridges (2006). Soundtrack for the film will be available in stores on Aug. 12.
Since his debut single "Shouldve Been A Cowboy" rocketed to the top of the charts in 1993, Keith has sold more than 31 million albums and performed for millions of fans in standing-room-only venues across the country. In this decade alone, his songs have spent more than a year at No. 1 on the Country charts.
