Keith Urban’s “Raise ‘Em Up (featuring Eric Church)” predictably reaches the #1 position on this week’s Mediabase country radio singles chart.

Up one place this week, “Raise ‘Em Up” usurps the throne from Dierks Bentley’s “Say You Do.” The track, which spent one week atop the Mediabase listing, sinks to #6 on this week’s chart.

Not simply the leader in Mediabase chart points, “Raise ‘Em Up” also ranks as the week’s most-played and most-heard song. It commanded ~7,942 spins and ~61.698 million audience impressions during the May 3-9 tracking week.

Confirmation will not come until Monday afternoon, but “Raise ‘Em Up” is also expected to top the corresponding Billboard Country Airplay chart.

As far as Mediabase goes, “Raise ‘Em Up” follows “Little Bit of Everything,” “We Were Us” and “Somewhere in My Car” as the fourth #1 single from Urban’s “Fuse.”

Tyler Farr’s “A Guy Walks Into a Bar” claims #2 on this week’s edition of the Mediabase chart. Billy Currington’s “Don’t It” and A Thousand Horses’ “Smoke” follow at #3 and #4, respectively. Up one place this week, Florida Georgia Line’s “Sippin’ on Fire” enters the Top 5 at #5.
