Sam Hunt’s “Body Like A Back Road” remains America’s hottest country song.
The hit tops a second straight Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.
In conjunction with its #1 position on Hot Country, “Body” keeps #1 on the Country Streaming Songs and Country Digital Song Sales charts. It rises to #18 on Country Airplay (and is also receiving minor support at the hot adult contemporary and pop radio formats).
As it rises to #1 on Country Airplay, Little Big Town’s “Better Man” holds at #2 on Hot Country Songs. Jon Pardi’s “Dirt On My Boots” stays at #3 on the Hot Country listing, while Chris Young’s “Sober Saturday Night (featuring Vince Gill)” jumps five places to a new peak of #4.
Keith Urban’s “The Fighter (featuring Carrie Underwood)” makes an even more dramatic jump into the Top 5, rising from #46 to #5. Urban and Underwood performed the song at last Sunday’s Grammy Awards ceremony, which yielded big gains on the sales and streaming fronts. The release of the music video also helped drive streaming activity, while the song further benefited from a big gain in radio airplay.
