With only two, low-profile songs entering the fray this week, country radio programmers focused on adding existing releases to their rotations.

According to Mediabase’s weekly report, The largest rise in support came for Dierks Bentley’s “Drunk on a Plane,” which scored another 40 country format adds. Tim McGraw’s “Meanwhile Back at Mama’s (featuring Faith Hill)” and Zac Brown Band’s “All Alright” tied for second place. Each landed at an additional 35 country stations this week.

Completing the top five were Blake Shelton’s “My Eyes (featuring Gwen Sebastian)” and John King’s “Tonight, Tonight.” Both picked up fourteen stations.

Chasin’ Crazy’s “That’s How We Do Summertime,” one of the week’s two newcomers, ranked sixth with 13 adds. Stephanie Quayle’s “Sugar High,” at least as far as Mediabase’s data is concerned, did not gain traction in its inaugural week at radio.

With 13 adds of its own, Josh Thompson’s “Wanted Me Gone” tied “Summertime” as the week’s sixth-most-added track. Frankie Ballard’s “Sunshine & Whiskey” (12, #8), Kip Moore’s “Dirt Road” (11, #9) and Cole Swindell’s “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight” (10, #10) closed out the weekly top ten.

Just outside the list of ten most-added tracks were Kacey Musgraves’ rising “Keep it To Yourself” (9 station adds), Parmalee’s “Close Your Eyes” (8 adds), Cassadee Pope’s “I Wish I Could Break Your Heart” (7 adds), Chris Young’s “Who I Am With You” (7 adds) and Dustin Lynch’s “Where it’s At” (7 adds).
