Wallen became the first artist ever to debut simultaneously at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart and the airplay-, streaming- and sales-based Hot Country Songs chart last week, when "Wasted on You" launched at No. 1. "7 Summers" took the lead back on Aug. 25, 2020.
Meanwhile, Luke Bryan had his eyes on Wallen's top 10 country hit "Sand in My Boots." "Luke Bryan fell in love with it too.... I don't know how he heard it, but we were all like, 'Man, we wanted you [Wallen] to have it. We thought you could make it cool.' So he missed out, dawg," songwriter HARDY told Wallen on Apple Music Country's Happy Hour Radio last Friday.
