Country radio programmers turned Kelsea Ballerini’s “Love Me Like You Mean It” into a #1 hit. Unsurprisingly, they are enthusiastically supporting the singer-songwriter’s follow-up single.
According to Mediabase, Ballerini’s new “Dibs” scored adds from 51 stations in conjunction with this week’s official impact. That count easily establishes “Dibs” as the week’s most added song.
With pre-impact and non-Mediabase supporters included, “Dibs” presently claims the backing of 72 country radio stations. That support level may not allow Ballerini to immediately call “Dibs” on a second straight #1, but it certainly establishes an aura of optimism around the new single.
Picked up by 30 monitored stations this week, David Nail’s new “Night’s on Fire” registers as the week’s second-most added song. Cam’s “Burning House,” which is receiving ongoing support from the iHeartMedia “On the Verge” program, follows as third-most added. It received 17 weekly pickups.
Kenny Chesney’s “Save it for a Rainy Day” (13 adds) and A Thousand Horses’ “(This Ain’t No) Drunk Dial” (11 adds) follow as fourth- and fifth-most added, respectively.
