Keith Urban’s “Wasted Time” Reaches #1 At Country Radio

Keith Urban’s “Ripcord” is three-for-three when it comes to sending singles to #1 at country radio.

“Wasted Time,” the third single from the recently released album, rises two places to #1 on this week’s Mediabase country radio singles chart. It seizes the throne from Luke Bryan’s “Huntin’, Fishin’ And Lovin’ Every Day,” which spent a single week on top.

“Wasted Time” follows in the chart-topping footsteps of previous “Ripcord” singles “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16” and “Break On Me.” Urban’s streak actually goes back two songs further, as “Fuse” singles “Somewhere In My Car” and “Raise ‘Em Up (featuring Eric Church)” also hit #1.

Not simply the leader in Mediabase chart points, “Wasted Time” ranks as the Mediabase panel’s most played and most heard song for the June 19-25 tracking week. It received ~8,272 weekly spins (+719) and ~56.837 million weekly audience impressions.

Jason Aldean’s “Lights Come On” holds at #2 on this week’s chart, while Carrie Underwood’s “Church Bells” enjoys a two-place lift to #3.

The aforementioned “Huntin’, Fishin’ And Lovin’ Every Day” is down to #4 this week, while Florida Georgia Line’s “H.O.L.Y.” jumps three places to #5.
