Eric Church, Dierks Bentley, Dan + Shay Debut on Country Airplay Chart

Eric Church’s “Like a Wrecking Ball” leads a pack of three additions to the weekly Billboard Country Airplay chart.

“Wrecking Ball,” the follow-up to Church’s #1 country radio hit “Talladega,” begins its Billboard run at #55.

Church is also represented by Keith Urban’s “Raise ‘Em Up.” The track, which credits Church as a featured artist, vaults to #17 as the week’s greatest airplay gainer.

The chart’s other debuts this week come from Dierks Bentley and Dan + Shay.

Bentley’s current single “Say You Do” is still on the rise at country radio, but album title track “Riser” manages to debut at #58 on this week’s edition of the Billboard Country Airplay listing.

Dan + Shay’s new single “Nothin’ Like You” starts at #59.
