Thanks to a strong opening week sales performance, Blake Shelton’s “God’s Country” debuts on this week’s Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The song earns #59 on the Hot 100, which ranks songs from all genres based on sales, streams and radio airplay.

“God’s Country” generated its most activity on the sales front, accordingly earning #1 on the all-genre and country Digital Song Sales charts. “God’s Country” also received a substantial amount of country airplay this week, although it is worth noting that the song actually slips one spot to #25 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart.

The new Shelton tune nonetheless makes a big, forty-one place leap to #5 on the Hot Country Songs chart. Accounting for activity on the sales, streaming and radio fronts, the chart is essentially the country version of the Hot 100.
