Billboard has released its latest Hot Country Songs chart, and it unsurprisingly features Sam Hunt’s “Body Like A Back Road” in the top spot.

“Body” is celebrating a 23rd week at #1 on the chart, which ranks country songs based on combined activity from sales, streams and radio airplay.

The song also holds at #1 on the Country Streaming Songs and Country Digital Song Sales subcharts. It rises to #4 on Country Airplay (despite a slight loss in country radio audience) and also posts gains at pop and hot adult contemporary radio.

Brett Young’s “In Case You Didn’t Know” holds at #2 on Hot Country Songs, while Thomas Rhett’s “Craving You (featuring Maren Morris)” retains the #3 position.

Dylan Scott’s “My Girl,” the new #1 on Country Airplay, holds at #4 on Hot Country Songs. Luke Combs’ “Hurricane” rises one spot to #5.
