INDEPENDENT & INTERNATIONAL: ROBBY JOHNSON TAKING OFF
Country Sensation’s Debut Album Enjoying Early Success In Canada
(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) Robby Johnson’s new single “Hate Me Tonight” just launched in advance of his debut album Don’t Look Back, which won’t be available in the U.S. until January 12, 2016. If the album’s Canadian release is any indication, however, more big things are on the way for this acclaimed country crooner.
Don’t Look Back is already top 3 at retail outlets in Canada as Johnson gets in front of millions of viewers north of the border. Ranked No. 7 on iTunes Canada’s country albums chart (just below Carrie Underwood), the album is also No. 3 overall at one of the country’s top physical retailers.
Meanwhile, Robby is enjoying media acclaim with recent performances on Channel V’s popular late night talk show Mode Salvail, as well as a visit to top morning show Salut, Bonjour! on the TVA network. He’s also been featured in the top newspapers. He’s also been featured in the top newspapers, La Presse, Le Journal de Québec, and Le Journal de Montreal.
“This is pretty amazing considering I don’t have a huge label machine behind me,” Robby says. “But, I do have a team of great people with huge hearts.” He also clearly has the goods when it comes to making and performing his music.
The 13-track album, due January 12, was produced by the storied James Stroud (Tim McGraw, Shelby Lynne, Chris Young) and follows Johnson groundbreaking introduction to the country music world. Views for his viral video “South Of Me” are now nearing three million. The video topped CMT’s Pure 12-Pack Countdown for seven weeks and earned Johnson major media including the Late Show with David Letterman, FOX’s Huckabee, USA Today, TV Guide and The Tennessean.
