Thomas Rhett’s “Die A Happy Man” Makes it 12 Weeks at #1 On Hot Country Songs

While Thomas Rhett’s “Die A Happy Man” cedes its country airplay throne, it remains #1 on Billboard’s all-encompassing Hot Country Songs chart.

The smash earns an eleventh straight week — and twelfth week overall — atop the listing, which ranks the top country songs based on the combination of sales, streaming, and airplay.

In conjunction with its latest Hot Country victory, “Happy Man” holds at #1 on Country Digital Songs, holds at #2 on Country Streaming Songs, and slips to #3 on Country Airplay.

Sam Hunt’s “Break Up In A Small Town,” which leads the Country Streaming listing, is again #2 on Hot Country Songs. Luke Bryan’s “Home Alone Tonight (featuring Karen Fairchild),” which rises to #1 on Country Airplay, is #3 on the overall chart.

Brothers Osborne’s “Stay A Little Longer” holds at #4 on Hot Country, while Granger Smith’s “Backroad Song” improves to #5 (+1).
