Zac Brown Band’s “Homegrown” is Country’s Most-Added (Updated)

Update: Because of Martin Luther King Day, Mediabase’s weekly country add board remained open on Tuesday.

As such, the weekly adds race was not as light as was first suggested.

Zac Brown Band’s “Homegrown” does rank as the format’s most-added track, but it does so on the strength of at least 72 monitored Mediabase adds. Big & Rich’s “Run Away with You” is currently second-most-added with 39 adds, while Keith Urban’s “Raise ‘Em Up (featuring Eric Church)” follows on the strength of its 36.

A Thousand Horses’ “Smoke” grabs fourth-most-added with 35 pickups; Frankie Ballard’s “Young and Crazy” completes the top five with 16.

A final report will be available Tuesday evening.
=============

A decidedly light week of country radio adds falls in favor of Zac Brown Band’s new “Homegrown.”

According to Mediabase, “Homegrown” scored 33 monitored adds in conjunction with this week’s official impact.

Enough to earn “Homegrown” the week’s most-added distinction, the add count was deflated by the fact that “Homegrown” was initially serviced to radio last Monday. The song immediately scored 37 adds last week and was thus destined for a lighter total in conjunction with this week’s impact.

A Thousand Horses’ “Smoke,” which was recently named the iHeartRadio “On the Verge” pick for country and actually overtook “Homegrown” on the airplay chart, is second-most-added with 19 pickups.

Big & Rich’s “Run Away with You” follows with 12 adds, while Keith Urban’s “Raise ‘Em Up (featuring Eric Church)” (10 adds, 4th-most-added), Mickey Guyton’s “Better Than You Left Me” (6 adds, 5th-most-added), Rachele Lynae’s “Whole Lotta Nothin'” (6 adds, 5th-most-added) and Tim McGraw’s “Diamond Rings and Old Barstools” (6 adds, 5th-most-added).
