Solo-Written Hit Single “23” Earns RIAA-Platinum Status,
Surges toward Top 15 at Country Radio
American Idol winner Chayce Beckham – who just made his Grand Ole Opry debut (October 18) and is currently on Luke Bryan’s Country On Tour – today releases “Whiskey On The Wall,” as his entirely self-written hit single “23” surges toward Top 15, after earning RIAA PLATNUM status. Pleading to drown out the burn of heartbreak, the new song finds a man seeking solace in a whiskey vice when things go south. With a bluesy rasp & raw storytelling, the rising star “is no doubt a force to be reckoned…proving he will leave a scorching mark on the country music genre for years to come” (PopCulture). Listen now HERE.
“I’m very excited to be releasing ‘Whiskey on the Wall,'” says Beckham. “I wrote this song for those who are searching for answers from a place that is continuously giving them false answers. I’ve been holding onto it for a long time, and I’m so happy to be able to share it with yall and get it out to anyone who needs it.”
With even more new music coming soon, “Whiskey On The Wall” follows the release of the heart-pulsing “Little Less Lonely,” the gripping “Till The Day I Die” that he performed on American Idol earlier this year (WATCH HERE), the “heartbreak-induced insomnia” (Country Now) of “Keeping Me Up All Night,” and the incredible success of his debut EP Doin It Right that skyrocketed to No. 1 on the iTunes All Genre and Country charts.
One of only three singles on the country radio chart this year that was self-penned by the artist, his smash debut “23” has become an anthemic staple in his live shows. Now RIAA-certified platinum, the semi-autobiographical song has racked up over 330 million on-demand streams and topped numerous viral charts, including #1 on iTunes All-Genre and Country charts. The first to ever win ABC’s American Idol with an original song, “23” is a deeply personal depiction of a man’s hardships, self-written during a particularly dark time in Beckham’s own life before he auditioned for the star-making competition series.
Since his history-making win, Beckham and his voice that Katy Perry said “sounds like the heart of America” has earned him critical acclaim from ABC’s Good Morning America and Jimmy Kimmel, E! News!, Billboard, People , CMT, PopCulture, Sweety High, American Songwriter and more.
