Luke Bryan’s “Strip It Down” Ranks as Country’s Most-Added; Tim McGraw Follows

Both Luke Bryan’s “Strip it Down” and Tim McGraw’s “Top of the World” won considerable support from country radio programmers this week.

Bryan’s new tune won just a little bit more.

According to Mediabase, the second single from his “Kill the Lights” scored adds from 85 monitored country radio stations. That count narrowly earns it the format’s most-added distinction.

Added by 82 stations, McGraw’s “Top of the World” ranks as the week’s second-most-added song.

While not quite as hot as the Bryan or McGraw songs, Jason Aldean’s “Gonna Know We Were Here” also proved resonant with country programmers. Third-most-added this week, “Gonna Know We Were Here” received 67 weekly adds.

Blake Shelton’s “Gonna” (29 adds) and Chase Bryant’s “Little Bit of You” (15 adds) follow as fourth- and fifth-most-added, respectively.

Other notable country radio options: Craig Campbell’s “Tomorrow Tonight” (13 adds, 6th-most-added), Kristian Bush’s “Light Me Up” (12 adds, 7th-most-added), Kelsea Ballerini’s “Dibs” (10 adds, 8th-most-added), Easton Corbin’s “Yup” (8 adds, 9th-most-added, tie) and Waterloo Revival’s “Bad for You” (8 adds, 9th-most-added, tie).
