Apple Music Chooses THE PARADE As One of the “Best of 2015: Americana”
“Life Comes At You Fast” #1 Most Played Song of 2015 on Texas Music Chart
“Dear Music,” Goes for Radio Adds January 11
NASHVILLE, TN – January 6, 2016 – Fresh from returning from his second Ireland tour (Red Dirt Pub Crawl), Alt-country singer/songwriter Bart Crow received a string of good news about the success of his album The Parade as well as the debut single “Life Comes At You Fast” to wrap up 2015.
Apple Music chose The Parade as one of the “Best of 2015: Americana” albums. The album entered the AMA Americana Airplay chart at No. 40 and made an impressive leap 13 spots to No. 27 after only one week in early November. The album was still charted at No. 36 on the last chart of 2015.
Crow’s debut single “Life Comes At You Fast” from The Parade peaked at No. 2 on the Texas Music Chart, remaining in the Top 5 for a record six weeks, but still became the No. 1 Most Played of 2015 on the Texas Music Chart. “Life Comes At You Fast” was on the Texas Music Charts for over 28 weeks making it arguably the longest running song in 2015 on the chart.
The Parade also received recognition from No Depression as one of the albums of “New Music You Need,” and the Houston Press named The Parade as one of the Best Albums of 2015.
“Dear Music,” (the song Starbucks chose to feature in their Overhead Music Program in late 2015) will be released on Monday, January 11 as the next single from The Parade. “I wanted to profess my love of and to music,” Crow explains in writing ‘Dear Music,’ “I wanted to write about its charm, its calming and healing abilities and its ability to wrap itself around most memories. Good or bad. Big and small. It’s completely my open diary to the one universal gift.”
In 2015, the same year he realized a dream of being invited to make his debut on the Grand Ole Opry, Crow also received a huge honor in his home state with the invitation to add his name to the infamous “backstage pass” wall at the world’s largest honky-tonk – Billy Bob’s Texas joining the ranks of many music legends to have earned the honor including Willie Nelson, Loretta Lynn, Alan Jackson, Alabama, Hank Williams, Jr., Chris LeDoux, Blake Shelton, Dwight Yoakam, Charlie Robison, and Marty Stuart among others.
The Parade is available now at iTunes.
