Midland’s debut single “Drinkin’ Problem” completes its run to the top of the country radio mountain.

Up three places, “Drinkin’ Problem” earns #1 on this week’s Mediabase country radio singles chart.

It seizes the throne from Justin Moore’s “Someone Else Will,” which falls to #6 after a single week on top.

Not simply the leader in chart points, “Drinkin’ Problem” was also the Mediabase country panel’s most-played song for the August 20-26 tracking week. It received 8,565 spins (+1,024).

It was only #3, however, for audience impressions. Its weekly count of 54.993 million trails the 56.584 million figure posted by Old Dominion’s “No Such Thing As A Broken Heart” and 55.555 million mark achieved by Dustin Lynch’s “Small Town Boy.”

Those two songs hold at #2 and #3, respectively, on the overall Mediabase chart.

Lady Antebellum’s “You Look Good” rises one spot to #4, while Jon Pardi’s “Heartache On The Dance Floor” jumps two spots to #5.
