Josh Turner’s “Hometown Girl” completes its ascent to the top of the country radio mountain.

The song, which was #3 last week, takes #1 on this week’s Mediabase country radio singles chart. It seizes the throne from Jason Aldean’s “Any Ol’ Barstool,” which falls to #4 after a single week on top.

“Hometown Girl” is Turner’s first #1 since 2010’s “All Over Me.”

In addition to claiming the greatest number of weekly chart points, “Hometown Girl” was the Mediabase country panel’s most-played song for the April 16-22 tracking week. It received 8,800 spins, besting last week’s count by a mammoth 1,287.

It takes second for weekly audience impressions, however. Its audience count of ~58.717 million trails the ~59.407 figure posted by Sam Hunt’s “Body Like A Back Road.”

“Body Like A Back Road” is #2 on the overall chart — and poised to hit #1 as soon as next week.

Up two places, Luke Combs’ “Hurricane” grabs #3 on the Mediabase chart. The aforementioned Aldean song is #4, while Kelsea Ballerini’s “Yeah Boy” slips one spot to #5.
