On the heels of Kacey Musgraves’ big night at the Grammy Awards, single “Rainbow” makes gains at its three target radio formats.

“Rainbow” officially enters the Top 20 at adult contemporary radio, the Top 55 at country radio and the Top 65 at hot adult contemporary radio.

Played 242 times during the February 10-16 tracking period, “Rainbow” rises five places to #18 on this week’s Mediabase AC chart.

Based on tracking week airplay, “Rainbow” now ranks as the Mediabase country panel’s #54 song. It was #68 last week. Country rankings are based on a proprietary points system (rather than raw airplay), but it is still worth noting that the “Golden Hour” single received 525 country radio spins this week.

A spin count of 57 meanwhile slots “Rainbow” as the Mediabase Hot AC panel’s #62 song. It was well outside last week’s Top 150.
