2007_07_plain_white_ts_01l.gifThe Plain White T’s have quietly been playing around since 1997, but ten years in they are experiencing something called “success” with their first major label album, Every Second Counts. The band earned its first Billboard Hot 100 No.1 with their single “Hey There Delilah” unseating Rihanna’s “Umbrella” which spent seven weeks at the top.

Just last week the RedEye Chi-Tunes spotlight featured the band and the hottest song in the country. Was that enough to finally push the song from #2 to #1? Our next chance to catch the band anywhere near home is at the DuPage County Fair on July 26 or at Six Flags in Gurnee on August 17.
