Tyler Childers has picked up his first ever charting single on Country Radio with ‘In Your Love’, with the fan-favourite song having surged to No. 50 on the Mediabase country rankings.

Although Tyler has been a mainstay of the alt-country scene for over a decade, with a plethora of streaming behemoths to his name such as ‘Feathered Indians’ and ‘All Your'n’, ‘In Your Love’ is the first to make its way into the mainstream Country Radio charts.

‘In Your Love’ served as the lead single from the Kentucky singer-songwriter's lauded 2023 album, Rustin’ in the Rain, and its popularity has undoubted been bolstered by the accompanying music video, which was celebrated by many as the best visuals of the year.

The video brings the endearing, rose-tinted lyrics to life, with Colton Haynes and James Scully driving the heartbreaking love-story as two gay coal miners from the 1950s.

Following the news of ‘In Your Love’ becoming Tyler Childers’ first charting song at Country Radio, one of Tyler's biggest advocates, Zach Bryan, took to X to express his disbelief at the fact that it's taken this long for Tyler to achieve this accolade.

Zach wrote, “‘First ever’ is fuckn insane, one of the best songwriters to ever do it”, before going on to compare Tyler's 2013 cult classic, ‘Shake The Frost’, which never touched Country Radio, to the monster Country Radio hit, Walker Hayes’ light-hearted ‘Fancy Like’.

Zach Bryan stressed his bemusement, “Imagine being radio (whoever the hell that is), hearing Shake the Frost and being like ‘no no let’s go with the Applebees song’”.

Some fans took the ‘Something in the Orange’ hitmaker's comments as being unnecessarily negative, with Zach responding by highlighting the tongue-in-cheek nature of his remarks, “not insulting anyone! Meant it with humor not malice, different strokes different folks was just bent about the first ever on mainstream radio thing my bad”.
