Another week, another changing of the guard at country radio.

This week’s leader on the Mediabase country radio singles chart is Dustin Lynch’s “Hell Of A Night,” which rises one place to seize the throne from Sam Hunt’s “House Party.”

Hunt’s tune slips to #5 on this week’s chart.

“Hell Of A Night” is the second straight #1 for Lynch, whose “Where It’s At (Yep, Yep)” also reached the pinnacle of the chart.

Not simply the leader in Mediabase chart points, “Night” also ranked as the Mediabase country panel’s most-played and most-heard song during the August 30-September 5 tracking week. It led the format with ~8,532 spins (+513) and ~56.343 million audience impressions (+2.528 million).

Thomas Rhett’s “Crash and Burn” (#2, +1), Chris Janson’s “Buy Me a Boat” (#3, +1) and Keith Urban’s “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16” (#4, +1) complete the weekly top five
