Billboard has released its new Hot Country Songs chart, and it predictably features Sam Hunt’s “Body Like A Back Road” at #1.

The Hunt song tops the chart for a twelfth consecutive week.

Not simply #1 on the overall Hot Country Songs listing, “Body Like A Back Road” tops all three component area charts. It is again #1 on Country Digital Song Sales, Country Streaming Songs, and Country Airplay. It also enjoys airplay gains at pop and hot adult contemporary radio.

Brett Young’s “In Case You Didn’t Know” holds at #2 on Hot Country, while Luke Combs’ “Hurricane” and Jon Pardi’s “Dirt On My Boots” respectively remain #3 and #4.

Up one place, Keith Urban’s “The Fighter (featuring Carrie Underwood)” returns to the Top 5 at #5. Its peak position, to date, is #2.
