– Brad Paisley went to number one with American Saturday Night
on the Mediabase country airplay chart, becoming his 12th consecutive number one single and the 16th of his career.
Paisley's dozen in a row - based on country airplay as charted by BDS or Mediabase - makes him second only to Sonny James as the solo country artist with the most consecutive number one singles in country chart history.
The song follows Welcome to the Future and Then as the third chart-topping single from Paisley's "American Saturday Night album."
Paisley's American Saturday Night Tour continued its hot streak with three sold-out shows this past weekend and Billboard listing the tour as the number 1 country tour for 2010 so far.
The tour takes a break this weekend and picks back up with shows in Fresno, Cal., Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Reno next week, Feb. 18 - 21. Miranda Lambert and Justin Moore are special guests on the tour.
While on the West Coast, Paisley will make an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! with an interview and performance on the Bud Light Golden Wheat Outdoor Stage Wednesday, Feb. 17.

Brad Paisley has grown up on his eighth album. Yes, the West Virginian maintains a sense of humor, but apparently aging has left its mark on a maturing singer who has never forsaken his country roots. That is ever so apparent in songs like Anything Like Me and Oh Yeah, You're Gone. The former finds Paisley looking at the passage of time through his son's life in a tender, but not sappy look. On the latter, he's a five-year-old boy who doesn't get what he wants, which his grandfather notices. ...
