Sam Hunt’s “Make You Miss Me” unsurprisingly completes its ascent to #1 on this week’s Mediabase country radio singles chart.

Up one place from last week’s position, Hunt’s “Montevallo” single seizes the throne from Dan + Shay’s “From The Ground Up.” Dan + Shay’s single slips to #4 this week.

In reaching #1, “Make You Miss Me” becomes Sam Hunt’s fourth country radio chart-topper. Previous singles “Leave The Night On,” “Take Your Time” and “House Party” also reached country radio’s summit. His “Break Up In A Small” peaked at #2 on the country radio chart.

Not simply the leader in Mediabase chart points, “Miss Me” also ranks as the Mediabase country panel’s most played and most heard song for the August 21-27 tracking period.

It received ~8,705 weekly spins (+576) and ~58.529 million weekly audience impressions.

This week’s runner-up position belongs to Kelsea Ballerini’s “Peter Pan,” which was #3 last week. A similar one-place lift brings Jake Owen’s “American Country Love Song” to #3.

The aforementioned “From The Ground Up” is #4, while Dierks Bentley’s “Different For Girls (featuring Elle King)” rises one spot to #5.
