Cole Swindell Hopes to Hold #1 at Country with “Hope You Get Lonely”

Cole Swindell

Sunday evening, Mediabase will issue its weekly, official country radio airplay chart. When it does, odds are strong that Cole Swindell’s “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight” will be in the number one position.

Despite being briefly overtaken by Luke Bryan’s “Roller Coaster,” earlier this week, Swindell’s latest single has spent the past few days in the number one position. If its lead also emerges in the official September 21-27 tracking period, it will claim the top spot on Mediabase’s official chart.

As far as the current, rolling chart goes, “Hope You Get Lonely” commands number one on the strength of 8,001 spins between September 20 and 26. Bryan’s “Roller Coaster” is #2 thanks to the 7,748 spins it received during that seven day period.

Florida Georgia Line’s “Dirt” (#3, 7,373), Dustin Lynch’s “Where it’s At” (#4, 7,183) and Jason Aldean’s “Burnin’ it Down” (#5, 6,856) claim the next three spots on the chart. They are all expected to appear in Sunday’s official top five.

By leapfrogging Sam Hunt’s “Leave the Night On,” Blake Shelton’s “Neon Light,” meanwhile, will claim the last available slot in this week’s top ten.
