Travis Denning has something to celebrate this week with his first-ever No. 1 single “After A Few,” a track that appears on his Beer’s Better Cold EP.

The song dethrones Luke Combs and Eric Church’s collaborative single, “Does To Me,” taking the top spot on Mediabase’s Country Radio Singles Chart. “Does To Me” drops to No. 3 on the chart, while Carly Pearce and Lee Brice’s “I Hope You’re Happy Now” rises two places to  No. 2 this week.

“After A Few” was co-written by Denning alongside songwriters Kelly Archer and Justin Weaver. The track follows his Top 40 debut single, “David Ashley Parker From Powder Springs.”

Mediabase Country Panel ranks “After A Few” as the most played and heard song for the May 31-June 6 tracking period, receiving ~9,004 spins (+900) and ~55.45 million audience impressions.

The guitar-driven song also rises to No. 7 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs, No. 3 on Billboard’s Country National Airplay Chart and No. 33 on the Billboard Hot 100, with 7.4 million U.S. streams and 2,000 downloads sold in the tracking week, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. The song has also risen to the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Emerging Artist Chart, dated June 6, becoming the top emerging act in the U.S. for the first time.

Denning celebrated the achievement with some of his “hometown boys” last night (June 6).

“Celebrated last night with the hometown boys. After A Few is the #1 song on country radio. So damn grateful. Love y’all,” Denning shared with fans.

Denning recently made his national television debut on NBC’s Today Show with an impressive performance of “After A Few” on Monday, March 9. His EP Beer’s Better Cold is available now and was produced by Jeremy Stover.

Additionally, Denning was scheduled to hit the road with Sam Hunt on his Southside Summer Tour, however it was unfortunately cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
