Sam Hunt’s “Body Like A Back Road” continues to rank as America’s hottest overall country song.

The smash hit tops a nineteenth consecutive edition of the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.

The Hot Country Songs listing ranks country songs based on combined activity from sales, streams and radio airplay, and “Body Like A Back Road” remains a strong performer in all three regards. It drops to #4 on the Country Airplay chart (but posts gains at pop and hot adult contemporary radio), while retaining the #1 positions on Country Digital Song Sales and Country Streaming Songs.

Brett Young’s “In Case You Didn’t Know” holds at its #2 peak on Hot Country Songs, while Luke Combs’ “Hurricane” remains #3. Keith Urban’s “The Fighter (featuring Carrie Underwood)” and Florida Georgia Line’s “God, Your Mama, And Me (featuring Backstreet Boys)” retain their #4 and #5 spots, respectively.

Dan + Shay’s “How Not To,” which rises to #1 on Country Airplay, ticks up one place to #7 on Hot Country Songs.
