Little Big Town, William Michael Morgan Score on Country Radio Add Board

While none received support of the magnitude afforded to Carrie Underwood’s “Smoke Break,” several songs fared well on this week’s country radio add board.

Little Big Town’s “Pain Killer” is one of those songs.

Added by 40 Mediabase-monitored stations in conjunction with this week’s official impact, the follow-up to “Girl Crush” ranks as the format’s second-most-added song.

William Michael Morgan’s debut radio single “I Met a Girl” also earned a solid volume of support. The song, which was co-written by Sam Hunt, earns third-most-added on the strength of its 30 weekly pickups.

The Band Perry’s “Live Forever,” which tied for most-added last week, claims the fourth-most-added distinction this week. It won adds from another 27 country stations.

Thanks to its 23 pickups, Tim McGraw’s “Top of the World” follows as fifth-most-added.

The aforementioned “Smoke Break” received adds from a whopping 145 Mediabase-monitored stations. The total is the greatest single-week add count reported during the history of the Country Aircheck industry publication.

Other notable country radio options: Luke Bryan’s “Strip It Down” (15 adds, 6th-most-added, tie), Reba’s “Until They Don’t Love You” (15 adds, 6th, tie), Jason Aldean’s “Gonna Know We Were Here” (13 adds, 8th), Blake Shelton’s “Gonna” (11 adds, 9th, tie), Cole Swindell’s “Let Me See Ya Girl” (11 adds, 9th, tie), and Tyler Farr’s “Better In Boots” (11 adds, 9th, tie).
