Kane Brown’s “Heaven” topped the past two Mediabase country radio singles charts.

It does not claim #1 on this position.

That honor belongs to Darius Rucker’s “For The First Time,” which rises two spots to the pinnacle position.

Not simply the leader in chart points, “For The First Time” also ranked as the Mediabase country panel’s most played and heard song for the May 20-26 tracking period.

It received 8,887 spins (+852) and 60.37 million audience impressions.

Luke Combs’ “One Number Away” holds at #2, while the aforementioned “Heaven” settles for #3.

Dierks Bentley’s “Woman, Amen” rises one place to #4, and David Lee Murphy & Kenny Chesney’s “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright” improves one spot to #5.
