On the heels of her big night at the Grammy Awards, Kacey Musgraves scores her first Billboard Hot 100 entry in five years.

Musgraves takes #98 on this week’s chart with “Rainbow.” The song, which is the new radio single from her Grammy-winning album “Golden Hour,” becomes Musgraves’ first Hot 100 entry since “Follow Your Arrow” made the chart in early 2014.

It follows “Merry Go Round” and “Arrow” as her third entry overall.

The Hot 100 ranks songs from all genres based on sales, streams and radio airplay. “Rainbow” received sales and streaming lifts following its Grammys exposure. It is also beginning to take flight at adult contemporary, hot adult contemporary and country radio.
