Consistent with the late-week projection, Kenny Chesney’s “Wild Child (with Grace Potter)” officially grabs the #1 spot at country radio.

Up one place from last week’s position, “Wild Child” becomes the third straight “The Big Revival” single (in three tries) to top the Mediabase country radio singles chart.

Not simply the week’s leader in Mediabase chart points, “Wild Child” also ranked as the format’s most-played and most-heard song during the June 7-13 tracking week. It received ~7,821 weekly spins and ~55.405 million audience impressions.

Kelsea Ballerini’s “Love Me Like You Mean It,” which claims #2 on the chart, received ~7,428 plays and ~51.636 million audience impressions.

In reaching #1, “Wild Child” seizes the throne from Florida Georgia Line’s “Sippin’ on Fire.” That song, which topped last week’s chart, slips to #5 this week.

Also in the top 5 are Carrie Underwood’s “Little Toy Guns” (#3) and Blake Shelton’s “Sangria” (#4).

Up two places, the latter makes its first appearance in the Top 5 on Mediabase’s country chart. It had already entered the Top 5 on Billboard’s corresponding Country Airplay listing.

The remainder of the top ten includes Easton Corbin’s “Baby Be My Love Song” (#6), Tim McGraw’s “Diamond Rings and Old Barstools” (with Catherine Dunn)” (#7), Canaan Smith’s “Love You Like That” (#8), Jason Aldean’s “Tonight Looks Good on You” (#9) and Little Big Town’s “Girl Crush” (#10).

The Smith song re-enters the Top 10 this week (+3), while the Little Big Town hit makes its first Mediabase Top 10 appearance (+2).
