Last week, Luke Bryan’s “Kick the Dust Up” blasted into the Top 5 of the Mediabase country radio singles chart.

This week, it surges three places to the number one position.

The lead single from Luke Bryan’s forthcoming “Kill the Lights” has officially been named the #1 song on Mediabase’s country radio singles chart. It his his tenth straight solo single to hit #1 on the Mediabase chart.

Not simply the leader in Mediabase chart points, “Kick the Dust Up” also ranks as the week’s most-played and most-heard country song. It received approximately ~8,414 spins (+1,470) and ~55.391 million audience impressions during the July 26-August 1 tracking week.

Michael Ray’s “Kiss You in the Morning,” which enjoyed a strong weekly airplay gain of its own, rises one place to #2 on this week’s chart. It received ~7,997 spins (+483) and ~54.013 million audience impressions; both, like its Mediabase chart score, rank second on the list.

Brantley Gilbert’s previous #1 “One Hell of an Amen” claims #3, while Frankie Ballard’s “Young & Crazy” (#4) and Zac Brown Band’s “Loving You Easy” (#5) complete the top five.

In addition to topping the Mediabase chart, “Kick the Dust Up” is also on track to hit #1 on Billboard Country Airplay. It would become his fifth-straight solo Billboard chart-topper (“That’s My Kind of Night,” which went #1 on Mediabase, settled for #2 on the Billboard listing).
