The Country Trio’s First Top 30 Hit Lands at #28
It looks like 2011 is coming to a close on a high note for The McClymonts. The girls received the news that the title track from the album Wrapped up Good broke into the Top 30 on the Music Row Country Breakout Chart this week. It is their highest charting single in the U.S. to date.
Brooke, Sam and Mollie received the exciting news Down Under where they are currently visiting with their family for the holidays. Sam McClymont had this to say, “We are thrilled to hit #28 this week! The support we have received in America for our music has been overwhelming. We are so excited to tour again next year and release more songs from the record Wrapped Up Good.”
Although they are Australia’s hottest country group, the girls knew that the U.S. would be a much steeper climb. In June, they decided to take the challenge head on and moved across the world to Nashville. During the summer, they toured throughout North America in support of the U.S. release of their new album Wrapped Up Good (which reached #5 on the Australian charts outselling country superstars Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney.) In September, the girls made their Grand Ole Opry debut and were immediately invited back. They continued their media campaign in October with appearances on national outlets NPR’s Weekend Edition and The Better Show. November proved to be an exciting month as reigning Country Music Association CEO, Steve Moore, presented the group with the 2011 CMA Global Country Artist Award. A few weeks later they wrapped up the month performing at Tootsie’s 51st Birthday Bash on Broadway.
2011 was a big year for The McClymonts but 2012 is sure to be even bigger. In February, they will join the country music community at CRS (Country Radio Seminar) in Nashville. In addition, they are currently lining up tour dates throughout the U.S. Listed below are a few dates that have been confirmed with more to follow:
- May 12: Creve Coeur Lakehouse – Maryland Heights, MO
- June 16: Kick’n Up Kountry Music Festival – Thief River Falls, MN
- July 16: Northeast Missouri Fair – Kirksville, MO
