Little Big Town scores their first #1 song on the Nielsen SoundScan Digital Country Songs Chart as “Pontoon” sells nearly 86,000 downloads this week, up 19% from last week.
“Little Big Town is on pace to have a gold single in just 8 weeks with “Pontoon” and the fans have just started hearing the song,” says Cindy Mabe, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Capitol Records Nashville. “’Pontoon’” is the perfect summer song and lead track from the career defining album they have just made. I think we’ve only scratched the surface of what’s yet to come for this song, this band and this album.”
Already Top 20 on the country Billboard chart, “Pontoon” is Little Big Town’s fastest rising single to date and has sold over 430,000 downloads since becoming available digitally.
“Pontoon” is the first single released from Little Big Town’s upcoming fifth studio album, produced by Jay Joyce, and is set for release this September. Written by Natalie Hemby, Luke Laird and Barry Dean, “Pontoon” has received rave critical praise to date and has been called the “song of the summer.”
