Ben Gallaher’s “Every Small Town” Debuts #7 as the Most Added Song at U.S. Country Radio with Double Digit Adds
Rising Star’s Hometown Anthem is also the
#2 Most Added Song by a NEW Artist this Week at Country Radio
NASHVILLE, TN (September 29, 2021) – Quartz Hill Records artist Ben Gallaher’s anthemic new single, “Every Small Town,” debuted this week as the #7 Most Added Song overall at U.S. Country Radio. Earning double digit ads in its first week, “Every Small Town,” also launched as the #2 Most Added Song by a NEW Artist at U.S. Country Radio (Mediabase).
Gallaher co-wrote the celebration of hometown pride and community alongside hit songwriters Ash Bowers (Montgomery Gentry/ Dustin Lynch) and Jim Collins (Jason Aldean/ Kenny Chesney). Ahead of this week’s debut, “Every Small Town” had already surpassed TWO MILLION streams on YouTube.
“I’m ecstatic about ‘Every Small Town” and its debut at country radio. The song’s inspiration came from how I was raised and from touring across the states. When we wrote it, my co-writers and I wanted to capture the theme of the American spirit. This wouldn’t be possible without my team at Quartz Hill Records and BSB Management — it takes a village! Thank you to all the stations already on board,” said Gallaher.
The impressive country radio debut of “Every Small Town” is the latest in a string of firsts for the young, rising star. CMT recently world-premiered Gallaher’s official music video for “Every Small Town,” which stars his real-life wife Monica. Watch it HERE.
Earlier this summer, the triple-threat singer, songwriter and guitarist released his debut Quartz Hill EP, Every Small Town. Gallaher co-wrote each of the five songs on the project which was produced by acclaimed music producers Mickey Jack Cones (Jason Aldean, Thomas Rhett) and Derek George (Randy Houser, Joe Nichols).
Sounds Like Nashville praised the project as containing “highly relatable stories and themes” calling Gallaher “a promising star in the format” while American Songwriter has declared Gallaher as an artist possessing “an authenticity that shines through.”
