HGTV's 'Property Brothers' Begin Building Chart History
Billed as the Scott Brothers, the pair enters Hot Country Songs with "Hold On."
It's a new kind of "bro country."
The Scott Brothers, better known as the stars of HGTV's Property Brothers, make their Billboard chart debut, as the folky "Hold On" bows at No. 38 on the Hot Country Songs tally (dated March 5).
With 1.1 million U.S. streams in the week ending Feb. 18, according to Nielsen Music, the track (which the duo self-released) also enters Country Streaming Songs at No. 24.
The Scott Brothers are 37-year-old twin siblings Drew and Jonathan Scott, who enlisted veteran Nashville songwriters Victoria Shaw and Chad Carlson to co-write "Hold On," along with another song, "Let the Night Shine in," at a songwriting session in Nashville. Both tracks were featured in the HGTV special Property Brothers at Home on the Ranch (Nov. 25). (Growing up, the pair logged years of vocal lessons, church choir and acting classes.)
The official video for "Hold On," featuring the guys crooning in a Tennessee barn, debuted Feb. 10.
Launched in 2011 on HGTV, the popular Property Brothers spotlights the Canadian born Drew and Jonathan (who bought their first house when they were each just 17) helping families buy fixer uppers and then turning them into dream homes.
Following the arrival of "Hold On," the Scott Brothers are reportedly planning to release an album.
