TOPS MULTIPLE CHARTS WITH THREE MILLION FIRST-WEEK U.S. STREAMS
NASHVILLE HEADLINE DEBUT AT RYMAN AUDITORIUM SET FOR NEXT FRIDAY, SEPT. 22
NASHVILLE, TENN. – Nearing two weeks since the release of his third studio album, Tennessee-native Larry Fleet‘s Earned It is making an emphatic entrance, garnering three million U.S. streams in its first week.
Recognized as a notable release of the week by NPR‘s All Songs Considered, the album “bursting at the seams with songs demanding attention” (Entertainment Focus) earned the top spot on the iTunes Country chart and the No. 3 rank on the iTunes all-genre album chart, while breaking in on the Spotify U.S. Debut Album chart at No. 2. With a heavy-hitting 21 song selection, Earned It landed as a Top 15 Apple Music country album, charting in 75 territories globally, and is Top 15 now on the Billboard Heatseeker albums chart.
“I couldn’t be more grateful for the response this album has gotten so far,” says Fleet. “Sharing songs that are relatable for working people who go out and ‘earn it’ every day – that’s an honor and something I don’t take lightly.”
The road-tested performer will take the historic Ryman Auditorium stage before a sold-out crowd next Friday, Sept. 22, playing acclaimed singles like “Where I Find God” and showcasing the three albums worth of material now under his belt.

ABOUT LARRY FLEET
Tennessee-born troubadour Larry Fleet grew up on a stack of records spanning Merle Haggard, Otis Redding, Willie Nelson, and Marvin Gaye. A thoughtful songwriter with a knack for a one-liner, an ear for a sturdy hook, and a powerhouse voice that strikes like a match, Fleet was working blue-collar jobs to make ends meet long before landing his recording contract with Big Loud Records. Six years in, the devout family man is turning heads among fans and critics with albums full of soon-to-be-classics; 2021’s tribute to the music that raised him, Stack of Records, his aptly titled 2019 debut, Workin’ Hard, and his third effort, Earned It, out now. Saving Country Music puts it simply: “If you’re looking for the future of traditional country music, then look no further than…Larry Fleet.” A road-tested live show standout, Fleet wrapped 2022 with his first-ever headline One For The Road Tour, following up crowd-winning opening slots supporting Darius Rucker, Willie Nelson, Jamey Johnson, Jon Pardi, and many more.
