“Simple” predictably earns the top spot on this week’s country radio add board.

Luke Bryan’s “Sunrise, Sunburn, Sunset,” last week’s add leader, takes second place this week. It won support from another 30 stations.

Clare Dunn’s “More” follows in third with 26 pickups, while an add count of 21 slots Abby Anderson’s “Make Him Wait” in fourth.

Jason Aldean’s “Drowns The Whiskey (featuring Miranda Lambert),” which landed on another 19 playlists this week, grabs fifth place on the add board.

This week’s other notable country radio options: Kelsea Ballerini’s “I Hate Love Songs” (13 adds, 6th-most), Sam Hunt’s “Downtown’s Dead” (11 adds, 7th-most), Dustin Lynch’s “Good Girls” (7 adds, 8th-most, tie), Joe Nichols’ “Billy Graham’s Bible” (7 adds, 8th-most, tie), and Maddie & Tae’s “Friends Don’t” (6 adds, 10th-most).
