Chart Notes:

  • Just under five years ago, “Don’t You Wanna Stay” from Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson had a four-week run on top of my chart, marking the last time my survey and the national Country radio listing shared a #1. That changes this week, as Thomas Rhett finally climbs to #1 (after four weeks at #2) with “Die A Happy Man”. It recently became his fifth #1 at the format, and his new single “T-Shirt” could become his sixth this spring.
  • This week’s Highest Debut is from the 37-year-old Michigan musician who calls himself Mayer Hawthorne. He comes in at #39 with “Love Like That”, the first radio single from his forthcoming Man About Town album. His last album gave him four top 40 singles on my chart, including the #2 hit “Her Favorite Song”. We’ll see if he can make it to the top this time.
  • Just below Hawthorne is the first top 40 hit for Barns Courtney. He debuts at #40 with “Fire”. If you saw the film Burnt sometime last fall, then you’ve known about the song for a few months. It was featured in both a scene and the credits. In a few weeks, it impacts at Triple A radio. Courtney is currently based in London.
