Nate Smith's "Whiskey On You" Is Finally Number One On Country Radio

January 30th 2023

Country music riser Nate Smith has achieved his dream and is now finally at #1. The California native is celebrating his first ever number one with the instant hit "Whiskey on You."

“When I released ‘Whiskey On You’ I wasn’t sure what would happen. I just knew I loved it!” Nate shared with Billboard. “First my fans were super encouraging on social media and then country radio welcomed the song with open arms, and for that I couldn’t be more grateful! This is such a proud moment for me and I feel so blessed to get to say I have the No. 1 song on country radio! Meanwhile, my dad is just glad I have a job! A huge thank you to country radio, my fans, my team, and everyone who has lifted this song up!”

Oh and lets not forget the track was also No. 1 on Canada’s country radio chart for six weeks – making the song the longest running No. 1 country debut by a male vocalist in their chart history.

When we caught up with Nate at the 56th CMA's Nate told us "I've had alot of great people come around me. It has been fun to see everyone come up together."

Plus his highly anticipated debut self-titled album set to arrive April 28, proves that Nate is already shooting for the stars.

Nate shared about the upcoming full-length project: “It has been so much fun making this album, and I really believe in every one of these songs. Releasing an album has always been a goal of mine, but at the end of the day it’s really not about me. It’s about being able to reach other people with music that means something.” He adds that his mission with his music is to be a “conduit of hope”; a selfless and passionate driving force that’s thematic in his songs. “I’m not trying to be cool, or reinvent the wheel, or chase musical trends…I’m going after the heart of the matter.”

This humble star had an impressive 2022. With multiple sold out shows and thousands of new fans, Nate's 2023 is set to be even bigger. Nate will be appear at Stagecoach Festival for the first time this year. He’ll also join Thomas Rhett on his HOME TEAM TOUR 23, which will kick off May 4 in Des Moines, IA, and will hit a total of 40 cities this summer.

2023 is the year of Nate Smith.
