Four songs ascend into the Top 60 of this week’s Billboard Hot 100.

All four songs are of the country variety.

Leading the charge is Sam Hunt’s red-hot “House Party.” The rapidly rising new single from Hunt’s “Montevallo” soars thirteen places to a new peak of #52 on the chart.

The gain comes as Hunt’s previous country–and current mainstream–single “Take Your Time” begins working its way back up the chart. “Time,” which reached #1 at country radio and went as high as #20 on the Hot 100, rises to #32 this week.

As far as the Top 60 goes, the second-highest-charting newcomer is Tim McGraw’s “Diamond Rings and Old Barstools (with Catherine Dunn).” The song, which maintains its #29 peak on the Radio Songs subchart, rises eight places to #56 on the overall Hot 100.

Thanks to “Crash and Burn,” country hitmaker Thomas Rhett joins Hunt and McGraw in the Top 60. The single rises four places to a new peak of #57.

Like “Diamond Rings,” Easton Corbin’s “Baby Be My Love Song” is a Top 5 hit at country radio. Like “Diamond Rings,” Easton Corbin’s “Baby Be My Love Song” is now a Top 60 entry on the Billboard Hot 100. While it slips to #30 on the Radio Songs subchart, it rises four places to #58 on the Hot 100.
