Evans' breakthrough radio single in America, "Kiss Somebody" topped the Country Aircheck and Mediabase charts this week. The single is featured on his self-titled EP, which came out on August 10.
Evans co-wrote the song with songwriters Chris DeStefano and Josh Osborne. "Kiss Somebody" had reached No. 1 on SiriusXM The Highway's Hot 30 Countdown, and it made it on Spotify's Global Viral 50 list. It also landed on No. 4 on the iTunes Top Country Songs charts, after he performed the song on The Bachelorette on ABC.
The Aussie singer-songwriter expressed that the idea of performing and traveling to America, as well as having a chart-topping single in country music was a "dream." That dream came to fruition this week for Evans. He shared that he was overcome with gratitude and thanked his fans and everybody at country radio for the love they have given "Kiss Somebody."
His self-titled EP is available on iTunes.
