Superstar tours with Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, and The Dave Matthews Band; rave reviews; sold-out stadiums; and the undeniable groove of hit single, “Feels Just Like It Should” all helped light the fuse for the explosive arrival of ‘Cannonball,’ the BNA Records debut from Texas fave and three-time Grammy nominee, Pat Green.
With first-week sales approaching 38,000, ‘Cannonball’ blew a hole in the #2 slot on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and rocked into the Top 20 on the Billboard 200 all-genre chart. The momentum behind the disc, further fueled by a performance on Tuesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, launched ‘Cannonball’ to an impressive first-week sales jump of more than 20% over Green’s prior release, 2004’s ‘Lucky Ones,’ and scored a #1 debut on SoundScan’s Digital Albums country chart.
The passionate energy of the music-packed, 14-track, Don Gehman-produced disc delivers what Green’s die-hard fans already know, with praise from such outlets as the Associated Press, Esquire and People which declared, “Pat Green is the Bruce Springsteen of the Southwest: He’s passionate, expressive and engaging.”
Hailed by USA Today as “the heartland rocker that country music has needed for years,” Green is currently on the road with upcoming dates in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts, as well as a New York stop on September 6th as Pat headlines Irving Plaza with support from BNA labelmates, The Lost Trailers.
