Sam Hunt’s smash “Body Like A Back Road” predictably extends its reign atop the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart by another week.

The song tops a fourteenth consecutive edition of the chart, which ranks country songs based on combined activity from sales, streams and radio airplay.

“Body Like A Back Road” concurrently retains the #1 positions on Country Digital Song Sales and Country Streaming Songs. It meanwhile falls to #2 on Country Airplay.

Brett Young’s “In Case You Didn’t Know” holds at #2 on Hot Country Songs. Luke Combs’ “Hurricane,” which rises to #1 on Country Airplay, retains the #3 spot on Hot Country Songs.

Up two places, Dierks Bentley’s “Black” earns a new peak of #4 on the Hot Country chart. Down one spot, Keith Urban’s “The Fighter (featuring Carrie Underwood)” follows at #5.
