Cole Swindell’s “You Should Be Here,” which topped the final country radio add board of 2015, earns the #1 spot on the first add board of 2016.

Thanks to pickups from 76 Mediabase-monitored stations, Swindell’s new single ranks as the country format’s most-added song.

“You Should Be Here” is already #31 on the Mediabase country airplay chart, and the impressive new wave of support should help it continue its climb.

Picked up by 31 stations, Old Dominion’s “Snapback” ranks as the week’s second-most-added song. Drew Baldridge’s “Dance With Ya” takes third on the strength of 24 adds, while Michael Ray’s “Real Men Love Jesus” (15) follows as fourth-most-added.

With 13 adds each, Carrie Underwood’s “Heartbeat” and Chris Lane’s “Fix” tie for fifth-most-added.

This week’s other notable options: Florida Georgia Line’s “Confession” (7 adds, 7th-most-added), Brett Eldredge’s “Drunk On Your Love” (6 adds, 8th), Drake White’s “Livin’ The Dream” (5 adds, 9th, tie), and Maren Morris’ “My Church” (5 adds, 9th, tie).
