For the first time in his career, Scotty McCreery holds the top spot on the Mediabase country radio singles chart.

McCreery’s “Five More Minutes,” which was #3 last week, improves to #1 on this week’s edition of the listing.

It seizes the throne from Kelsea Ballerini’s “Legends,” which falls to #8 after a single week on top.

Not simply the leader in chart points, “Five More Minutes” ranks as the Mediabase country panel’s most-played and most-heard song for the February 18-24 tracking period. It received 8,545 spins (+902) and 58.373 million audience impressions.

Up two places, Thomas Rhett’s “Marry Me” improves to #2 this week. Chris Stapleton’s “Broken Halos” rises two spots to #3, while Old Dominion’s “Written In The Sand” dips two places to #4.

A one-place rise brings Devin Dawson’s “All On Me” to #5.
