Following in the footsteps of previous “Storyteller” singles “Smoke Break” and “Heartbeat,” Carrie Underwood’s “Church Bells” reaches #1 on the Mediabase country radio singles chart.

“Church Bells” seizes the throne from Jason Aldean’s “Lights Come On,” which falls to #3 after one week on top.

Not simply the leader in chart points, “Church Bells” also ranks as the Mediabase country panel’s most played and most heard song for the July 10-16 tracking period. It received ~8,843 weekly plays (+441) and ~60.132 million weekly audience impressions.

“Church Bells” is Underwood’s third number one hit from “Storyteller.” It is her 21st career #1 at country radio and 24th overall “#1 hit.” The later achievement accounts for her Billboard Hot 100 #1 “Inside Your Heaven” and her Hot Country Songs number ones “Somethin’ Bad (Miranda Lambert duet)” and “Something In The Water.”

Up one place, Florida Georgia Line’s “H.O.L.Y.” earns #2 on this week’s Mediabase chart. The aforementioned “Lights Come On” slips to #3, while Eric Church’s “Record Year” (#4, +1) and Chris Lane’s “Fix” (#8, +3) close ou the Top 5.
