CHEERS

Congrats to Kane Brown on “Lose It” becoming his third career (and consecutive) #1 hit. Between Jimmie Allen (“Best Shot) the last two weeks and Kane this week, I bet this is the first time EVER that two non-white artists have ruled the top of the country music charts for consecutive weeks. IF Kane’s “Lose It” can hold the top spot for one more week, that would be an unprecedented month-long rule by Jimmie & Kane. Happy Birthday to Warehouse West Entertainment’s Nicole Kasper

TOP SHELF
