Chris Stapleton’s “Tennessee Whiskey,” which soared to #1 in the immediate aftermath of the November 4 CMA Awards, earns a second week atop Billboard’s all-encompassing Hot Country Songs chart.

The weekly Hot Country Songs victory comes in conjunction with a second week at #1 on Country Digital Songs and a rise to #3 on Country Streaming Songs.

Thomas Rhett’s “Die A Happy Man” holds at #2 on this week’s Hot Country Songs chart, and Sam Hunt’s “Break Up In A Small Town” remains #3. Chris Young’s “I’m Comin’ Over” jumps one place to #4 in conjunction with its ascent to #1 on Country Airplay, while Carrie Underwood’s “Smoke Break” rises two places to #5 on Hot Country.

Joey + Rory’s “When I’m Gone,” which enters at #21, is the all-encompassing chart’s top debut.
