Singer/songwriter, Zoe Warren, has soared through the iTunes country charts with her newly released single, Hurricane.

Just 24 hours after the release of Zoe’s song (on Friday, October 13) it shot from being No. 153 right to number three, today.

Warren said: “It just feels incredible. It feels like a lot of hard work and love for it has really been appreciated and noticed and that’s incredible.

“To even have been in the top 200 was amazing, and now I’m at number 3 and it’s incredible!.”

To get to its top ten spot Zoe’s song had to over some of her musical idols and country legends such as Taylor Swift, Johnny Cash and Shania Twain.

She said: “It surreal. At one point my song was wedged right in between Taylor Swift and Kelsea Ballerini (who I love) and I just found myself crying.

“To even see my name on the same list as Dolly Parton and Shania [Twain] and Lady Antebellum is amazing.”

Zoe said she received a huge amount of support from not just her friends and family, but fans from around the world.

She said: “I’ve had so much support from family, friends, friends of friends and even strangers on my social media platforms it’s really amazing.

“I’ve had people from Tennessee and Canada tweeting me about how much they like it.”

Zoe recently performed at the Copeland Rocks 4 Manchester benefit gig, in aid of those affected by the Manchester bombings earlier this year.

Zoe Warren’s song, ‘Hurricane’, is available to download  iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon music, Google Play and Spotify.
