Congratulations to Downtown Nashville's Kelly Archer for her co-write on current Country #1 single “Sleep Without You.” As declared by Mediabase, “Sleep Without You” ranks as the country panel’s most-played and most-heard song for the November 20-26 tracking week.
Recorded by Brett Young, the single has been steadily climbing the chart since its release on February 12, 2016. A song of many firsts, “Sleep Without You” is not only Brett Young’s debut single released on Big Machine Label Group, but also his first # 1, as with Kelly Archer, Downtown Nashville, and our partners Red Creative Group and Word Country representing co-writer Justin Ebach.
Kelly joined the Downtown family along with partner RED Creative Group, two years ago, with over a decade of writing experience in Nashville. After coming on board, she has been on a major hot streak with 3 hit singles in Canada and, more recently, 4 songs on the country singles charts since March of 2016 with Cassadee Pope, Brett Young, Justin Moore and Chris Lane. It goes without saying, we’re thrilled about our progress in Nashville with Kelly Archer leading the charge.
We are excited to be a part of Kelly’s first #1 and look forward to our future progress.
