Last week, Sam Hunt’s “Body Like A Back Road” reached #1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart.

This week, it rises to #1 on the Mediabase country radio singles chart.

Up one place, it seizes the throne from Josh Turner’s “Hometown Girl.” The Turner song falls to #6 after a single week on top.

Not simply the leader in Mediabase chart points, “Body Like A Back Road” ranks as the Mediabase country panel’s most-played and most-heard song for the April 23-29 tracking week.

It received ~9,164 spins (+583) and ~61.856 million audience impressions.

Up one place, Luke Combs’ “Hurricane” earns #2 on this week’s chart. Kelsea Ballerini’s “Yeah Boy” rises two spots to #3, while Brett Young’s “In Case You Didn’t Know” jumps three places to #4.

Dierks Bentley’s “Black,” which was #6 last week, takes #5 this week.
