Newcomers the Henningsens Make Huge Debut at Country Radio

The Henningsens

Arista Nashville has a new artist on the block, and they’ve already been debuted on more than 70 radio stations — and growing. The family band calls themselves the Henningsens, and their first single ‘American Beautiful’ received a combined 77 Country Aircheck and Billboard radio adds last week.

If that number doesn’t mean anything to you, allow us to put it in perspective: That number gives ‘American Beautiful’ the most first-week adds of any debut single in Country Aircheck history. Also, the Henningsens scored the highest impact-week add total for any group since 1999.

‘American Beautiful’ is the title track from the Henningsens debut album. The fast-tempo song starts out by telling the story of an all-American girl who loves her boots and bandana — and the Rolling Stones. It seems like it’s going to be another country tune about the beautiful girl next door, but the second verse introduces another type of American in a guy with a mixed background who falls in love with the girl. As a pair, the two are a little bit unusual, but that’s what makes them ‘American Beautiful.’

The trio is comprised of Brian Henningsen on bass, guitar and vocals; his son Aaron on guitar and vocals; and his daughter Clara on lead vocals and guitar. On February 2, the family band will make their Grand Ole Opry debut.

With a record-breaking radio debut, fans should expect to hear a lot more about this family trio!
