ALBUM BECOMES FORTUNE’S FIRST TOP 10 BILLBOARD COUNTRY ALBUM

‘Hits & Hymns’ Available at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store locations

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (November 2, 2015) – After joining the legendary Statler Brothers in 1982, winning countless awards, and being inducted into both the Country Music Hall of Fame and Gospel Music Hall of Fame, Jimmy Fortune is no stranger to success, as he continues to reach new heights. His latest album Hits & Hymns, is off to a roaring start, as it debuts on Billboard’s Country Albums chart at No. 10, becoming his first top ten record on the chart as a solo artist. The feel-good album also debuts at #1 on the Southern Gospel Album chart and No. 6 on the Billboard Contemporary Christian Album chart.

Hits & Hymns is available at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® locations, iTunes, Amazon, and music retailers nationwide.

Accompanying the album is the Bill Gaither hosted DVD special, Jimmy Fortune: Hits & Hymns, which also debuts with strong numbers. The collection debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard Music Video chart, along with No. 1 on the Christian Music Video chart, marking Fortune’s first #1 solo project. Fortune traveled to Indiana to tape the hit DVD, with a featured appearance by Bill Gaither. In addition to performing every song on the album, the “Elizabeth” singer opens up about some of his biggest trials and triumphs. Fans got to preview the collection ahead of time, as it made its debut last month on TBN, Heartland, The Miracle Channel, DISH TV, and more.

The CD project, which features collaborations with Vince Gill, The Oak Ridge Boys, The Isaacs, Ricky Skaggs, Dailey & Vincent and more, has generated a great amount of buzz. Billboard says that “Jimmy Fortune earned his reputation as one of the purest tenor singers in the format,” while the Cleveland Plain Dealer says, “It’s a great album, and I suspect it will add even more Dove Awards for gospel music to what has to be a very large trophy case.”
