Lindi Ortega) were both #1 Most Added (All formats) upon release, #1 selling Country singles at iTunes Canada, and spent multiple weeks at #1 on CMT Canada’s Top 20 Countdown.
This week, Brody was named 2013’s #1 Most Played Canadian Artist at Country radio, his third consecutive year to receive this title.
