Sam Hunt’s “Body Like A Back Road” extends its record-breaking run atop the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.

The smash hit claims #1 on a 29th consecutive edition of the chart.

Hot Country Songs ranks songs based on combined activity from sales, streams and radio airplay; “Body” is a force in all three columns.

It remains #1 on the Country Digital Song Sales and Country Streaming Songs subcharts. It is no longer listed on Country Airplay due to recurrent rules, but it continues to receive an immense amount of play at the country, pop and hot adult contemporary formats.

Dustin Lynch’s “Small Town Boy” holds at #2 on Hot Country Songs, while Kane Brown’s “What Ifs (featuring Lauren Alaina)” keeps the #3 position.

Midland’s “Drinkin’ Problem” rises two places to #4.

Old Dominion’s “No Such Thing As A Broken Heart” — the #1 on Country Airplay — holds at #5 on Hot Country.
