Brantley Gilbert‘s latest number one single is also Lindsay Ell‘s first American #1 single!

The advance Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase/Country Aircheck singles charts show “What Happens In A Small Town” in the number one spot for this week. The song is a collaboration with Lindsay and is from Brantley’s recently released #1 album Fire & Brimstone.

This marks the fifth career chart topper for Brantley. It is Lindsay’s first #1 on an American chart for radio airplay. She did hit #1 with her song “Criminal” in her native country of Canada.

Based on her post on Twitter, I would say Lindsay is pretty excited about the career milestone this week…

The song is also nominated for Musical Event of the Year at Wednesday night’s (11/13) 53rd CMA Awards. The live show will be hosted by Carrie Underwood with special co-hosts Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton and will air at 8/7 central on ABC.

Listen for the #1 collaboration between Brantley and Lindsay on Bloomington-Normal’s #1 Country, B104!

Congratulations to Brantley Gilbert and Lindsay Ell on their #1 song “What Happens In A Small Town.”
