Days after bumping Jason Aldean’s controversial single “Try That in a Small Town” and Taylor Swift’s “Cruel Summer” off the iTunes Country and Top Entries charts, respectively, singer-songwriter Oliver Anthony has reached a new milestone with his song “Rich Men North of Richmond.” The viral hit has now topped the Billboard Hot 100.
Anthony has made history as the first artist ever to top the Hot 100 with no prior chart history.
