Kelsea Ballerini’s “Love Me Like You Mean It” Hits #30 on Country Airplay Chart

Kelsea Ballerini’s debut single “Love Me Like You Mean It” is officially a top thirty hit at country radio.

“Love Me” reaches #30 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart thanks to its weekly audience impression count of 5.904 million. An improvement of 635,000 from last week’s audience total, the count helps “Love Me Like You Mean It” rise six places on the audience-driven radio chart.

Insofar as the song actually received fewer spins this week than it did last week (1414 vs. 1430), its sizable audience gain can be attributed to higher-profile airplay.

Ballerini’s track is one of two new additions to the top thirty. Miranda Lambert’s new “Little Red Wagon,” which was #38 on last week’s chart, joins the club at #27.

New top 40 entries this week include Frankie Ballard’s “Young and Crazy” (#39, +3) and Keith Urban’s “Raise ‘Em Up (featuring Eric Church)” (#40, +13). Rascal Flatts’ “Riot” re-enters the top 40 at #37 (+4).

— Ballerini’s single, which is featured on her self-titled EP, is currently #33 on Mediabase’s version of the country airplay chart.
