With his first bona fide hit, “Livin’ the Dream,” on the verge of breaking into the top twenty, Drake White has plenty to celebrate, as his debut album Spark enters the Billboard Top Country Albums chart at number four.
The Hokes Bluff, Alabama native says he can’t believe the company he’s in. “To be in the top five with Dolly Parton, Chris Stapleton and Justin Moore it is surreal,” he confesses.
Drake continues on Zac Brown Band’s Black Out the Sun tour through the middle of the month, before he heads out on Dierks Bentley’s Somewhere on a Beach trek in October.
You can check out a new version of “Livin’ the Dream,” shot in Joshua Tree National Park, on the Grand Ole Opry’s YouTube channel.
