“Real Men Love Jesus,” the follow-up to Michael Ray’s chart-topping “Kiss You In The Morning,” earns third-most-added on the strength of its 38 pickups. Rascal Flatts’ “I Like The Sound Of That” (33 adds) and Sam Hunt’s “Break Up In a Small Town” (13 adds) follow as fourth- and fifth-most-added, respectively.
