We have a split-chart scenario at country radio this week. While William Michael Morgan’s “I Met A Girl” claims #1 on the Mediabase country radio singles chart, Billy Currington’s “It Don’t Hurt Like It Used To” reaches the apex of Billboard’s Country Airplay chart.

Up one place from last week’s position, “It Don’t Hurt Like It Used To” received 44.830 million weekly audience impressions (+3.893).

The aforementioned “I Met A Girl” rises one spot to #2 on Country Airplay, while Kenny Chesney’s “Setting The World On Fire (with P!nk)” jumps three places to #3.

Tucker Beathard’s “Rock On” climbs one place to #4, and Luke Bryan’s “Move” enjoys a two-place lift to #5.

Justin Moore’s “You Look Like I Need A Drink,” last week’s #1 song, falls off the chart this week.
