Tomorrow (Jan. 30) marks the first anniversary of singer/songwriter Tenille Townes scoring her first Canadian #1 hit, “Somebody’s Daughter.” Today, her current single “Jersey on the Wall (I’m Just Asking)” sits at the top of the weekly Billboard Country Canada National Airplay chart, just one day short of the first anniversary of her first #1, and the song also has the distinction of becoming her second chart-topper.

But the coincidence doesn’t end there.

“Jersey,” Tenille’s second #1 replaces Brett Kissel’s second #1, “Drink About Me,” at the top of the chart. One year ago, “Somebody’s Daughter” replaced another Canadian song at #1, coming one week after The Reklaws earned their first #1 with “Feels Like That.” It’s a rare feat that, on a chart dominated by American hits, two different Canadian acts would follow each other at the top. Even rarer is that it’s happened twice almost exactly a year apart to the day.

Wait. There’s more.

Last year was the most successful in the charts’ history (since it began in 2013) for Canadian artists reaching the summit. An even dozen Canadian singles set that record. Brett and Tenille, unknowingly, seem to have put out the challenge: let’s see if 2020 be just as successful, or better, than last year.

And…last year at this time, Townes was touring with Dierks Bentley. In two weeks, she begins a tour with Alan Jackson.

But I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention how unreal a short 24-hour timespan must be for Tenille. In addition to earning her second #1 song, she also found out yesterday she’s in the running for two Juno awards, both categories open to all genres: Breakthrough Artist and Songwriter of the Year. Plus, yesterday afternoon, she was on Facebook Live, performing both of her Canadian #1 hits at the CMA (Country Music Association) offices in Nashville!
