Jason Aldean’s “Just Gettin’ Started” Rises to #1 at Country Radio

While its airplay total is not the week’s greatest, its Mediabase chart point total is. Jason Aldean’s “Just Gettin’ Started,” therefore, rises to #1 on the official Mediabase country radio chart.

Aldean’s tune seizes the throne from Blake Shelton’s “Lonely Tonight (featuring Ashley Monroe),” which descends to #2 this week.

Despite its deficit in chart points, the Shelton song nonetheless repeats as the format’s most played song this week. It received 7,761 spins during the March 1-7 tracking week, while “Just Gettin’ Started” earned only 7,718.

The Aldean track did, however, reach the format’s largest audience this week. Its weekly impression count of 60.23 million bests the 59.80 million earned by “Lonely Tonight.”

Other top five songs this week: Brett Eldredge’s “Mean to Me” (#3), Chris Young’s “Lonely Eyes” (#4) and Darius Rucker’s “Homegrown Honey” (#5).

“Just Gettin’ Started” is the follow-up to lead “Old Boots, New Dirt” single “Burnin’ it Down.” That, too, hit #1.
