Aided by growing marketplace presences — and the fact that the chart was recalibrated to give more weight to sales and less to streaming — several country singles debut on this week’s Hot 100.

Leading the charge among country songs is Rascal Flatts’ “I Like The Sound Of That.” The veteran act’s tune starts at #87 on the all-encompassing Hot 100.

Newcomer Maren Morris follows at #91 with “My Church.” Her song, which is the current “On The Verge” pick at country radio, concurrently debuts at #48 on the Digital Songs listing.

“Country Nation,” the latest single from Brad Paisley, enters the Hot 100 at #94. It concurrently re-enters Radio Songs at #50.

Tim McGraw’s new radio single “Humble And Kind” directly follows at #95. It also earns #27 on Digital Songs.

Following its first full week of availability, Dierks Bentley’s “Somewhere On A Beach” earns #98 on this week’s Hot 100 chart. It debuts at #41 on Digital Songs.

“Snapback,” the follow-up to Old Dominion’s breakthrough “Break Up With Him,” arrives at #100 on this week’s Hot 100.
