The Henningsens Break Radio Airplay Records

"AMERICAN" THE "BEAUTIFUL": Gary O’s Arista Nashville trio The Henningsens achieved the most first-week adds of any debut single in Country music history with “American Beautiful” receiving 77 combined Country and Mediabase adds. The Henningsens also scored the highest impact-week add total for a group since 1999. The single garnered the most out-of-the-box adds in recent Mediabase history and ties Gretchen Wilson’s 2004 Sony debut “Redneck Woman.” The trio’s debut album, helmed by multi-million-selling producer Paul Worley (Lady Antebellum, Martina McBride), will be released in early 2013. The family, consisting of father Brian (bass, guitar, vocals), son Aaron (guitar, vocals), and daughter Clara (lead vocals, guitar), will make their debut at the famed Grand Ole Opry House on Feb. 2. The Henningsens have previously penned songs recorded by Wynonna, Sara Evans and The Band Perry, whose two-week #1 smash, “All Your Life,” was written by Brian and Clara. (12/18p)
