Last week, Zac Brown Band’s “Homegrown” earned the #1 spot on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart but came up short on Mediabase’s country singles chart. Mediabase’s top position instead went to Darius Rucker’s “Homegrown Honey.”

“Homegrown” was not to be denied the peak Mediabase spot for a second consecutive week. The song rises one place to claim the #1 spot on this week’s edition of the Mediabase country radio chart.

In seizing the throne, “Homegrown” holds off Sam Hunt’s advancing “Take Your Time.” That song, which is a multi-week leader on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart, earns the #2 position on this week’s Mediabase country radio chart (+1).

Not simply the leader in Mediabase chart points, “Homegrown” also ranks as the week’s most-played and most-heard country song. It commanded 8,158 spins and 63.569 million audience impressions during the March 29-April 4 tracking week. The aforementioned “Take Your Time” received 7,954 spins and 62.552 million impressions.

Also in this week’s top five are Chris Young’s “Lonely Eyes” (#3, +1), Lee Brice’s “Drinking Class” (#4, +2) and Dierks Bentley’s “Say You Do” (#5, +2).

The balance of the top ten includes Darius Rucker’s “Homegrown Honey” (#6, -5), Keith Urban’s “Raise ’em Up (featuring Eric Church)” (#7, +1), Tyler Farr’s “A Guy Walks Into a Bar” (#8, +1), Cole Swindell’s “Ain’t Worth the Whiskey” (#9, -4) and Billy Currington’s “Don’t It” (#10, +1).
