Luke Bryan - ACCAs/FOX

The sixth single from Luke Bryan’s “Crash My Party” continues to get hotter.

Bryan’s “I See You,” which is the youngest member of the country radio top ten, rises to a new peak of #5 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. Its growth corresponds with its gain on the Billboard Hot 100, which lists the track at a new high of #57 this week.

Since the 2012 introduction of the Hot Country Songs chart, no official Luke Bryan single has missed the top five.

Since debuting with “All My Friends Say” in 2007, only two of his singles (“We Rode in Trucks” and “Country Man”) have fallen short of the top sixty on the Hot 100.

Other country music notables this week:

— Bumped to #3 by Craig Wayne Boyd’s “My Baby’s Got a Smile on Her Face” and Tim McGraw’s “Shotgun Rider” last week, Carrie Underwood’s “Something in the Water” this week returns to #1 on Hot Country songs. It also re-enters the Hot 100’s top 40 at #37.

— Despite dropping one position to #52 on the Hot 100, Eric Church’s “Talladega” rises one spot to #3 on Hot Country Songs. It only trails Underwood’s “Water” and McGraw’s “Rider.”

— Florida Georgia Line’s “Sun Daze” rises to #4 on Hot Country Songs and #53 on the Hot 100. Both are peak positions.

— Lee Brice’s “Drinking Class” soars to peaks of #6 on Hot Country Songs and #60 on the Hot 100.

— RaeLynn’s “God Made Girls” returns to its highs of #7 on Hot Country Songs and #61 on the Hot 100.

— Benefiting from growing momentum and a $.69 sale on iTunes, Chris Young’s “Lonely Eyes” jumps to #15 on Hot Country Songs and #77 on the Hot 100.
