The title given to Nashfield's debut album, "One", was actually intended to show that this was the first album put out by the Country band. Now the title has a double meaning because "One" has climbed up to top spot in the Amazon.de download charts in the country genre.
The album only became available after a week's delay in the download shops on all Amazon pages, and on its day of release, 4 October 2013, "One" reached the top 20. The album continued to climb the charts as they were updated almost hourly. First it displaced Taylor Swift's "Red" from number 2 before overtaking the Man in Black, Johnny Cash, with his "100 Greatest Hits - the Very Best of Johnny Cash" album which had been nestling at the top for weeks.
This is the first time in the history of the Amazon.de download charts that a debut album issued by a German Country band has gone straight to the top of the Country download charts on the day of publication.
Two singles have been issued from the debut "One" album: in 2012, "Kick It like Country" was released as a pre-single, and once the album was released the title song was also released as a single. The song is currently on its way into radio station playlists across Europe.
