The International Bluegrass Music Association Entertainer of the Year Balsam Range’s ninth album Aeonic debuted at #1 on the Billboard Bluegrass Album Chart, further showing why they’re one of the most vital artists in the roots genre. The album also debuted at #8 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart, #26 on the Americana/Folk Chart and #33 on the Current Country Chart.

With arresting songs full of humanity, dynamic performances graced with subtleties, and material that is both personal and profound, Aeonic features music that would be powerful in any genre, but is made all the more compelling through this Western North Carolina band’s acoustic music mastery.

"What an incredible honor to see Aeonic debut on the Billboard chart at #1!" says Buddy Melton, Balsam Range vocalist and fiddle player. "I could not be more proud of the project or of the individuals that worked so hard to make this project come to life. And most importantly, a big thanks to all the supporters! What an awesome way to start off the new year."

Scott Wagner, senior vice president of Crossroads Label Group adds, “We’re very excited for this #1 album debut. In today’s market, they’re not easy to come by. We’re proud of Balsam Range for putting in the time and effort to create music that resonates so powerfully with their audience.”
