P!nk and Chris Stapleton’s live rendition of “Love Me Anyway” was the best performance at Wednesday’s CMA Awards.

On the heels of the show-stealing effort, the song made a huge jump on the US iTunes.

By 11AM ET Thursday morning, “Love Me Anyway (featuring Chris Stapleton)” had reached #1 on the all-genre sales chart. It seized the throne from Taylor Swift’s “Lover (featuring Remix),” which had ruled since early Wednesday.

“Love Me Anyway” is one of several CMA performance numbers charting well on iTunes. Old Dominion’s “One Man Band” is #4, ahead of Lady Antebellum’s “What If I Never Get Over You” at #5. Blaek Shelton’s “God’s Country” (#6), Dan + Shay’s “Speechless” (#7), and Luke Combs’ “Beer Never Broke My Heart” (#8) also appear in the Top 10.
