Sam Hunt’s Current Single “Breaking Up Was Easy In The 90’s” Hits #1

Sam Hunt lands his eighth number one song at country radio this week with “Breaking Up Was Easy In The 90’s”. The fifth single off his Southside album.

Sam Hunt is one of those artists that floats in and out of the limelight but always manages to crank out hit after hit. We are big fans of his latest album Southside, and it’s no surprise that each of his singles from the record have landed on the top of the charts. Currently, “Breaking Up Was Easy In The 90’s” is the number one song on the country charts, marking the fourth single off the record to hit the top spot, following “Body Like A Back Road,” “Kinfolks,” and “Hard To Forget.”

“Breaking Up Was Easy In The 90’s” was easily one of our favorites off the record. Hunt utilizes his signature ‘talk-singing’ on the track to convey how difficult break-ups are in modern times. He comes to the conclusion that breaking up was easier back in the ’90s. The cleverly strung-together lyrics, make it hard not to fall in love with this all too relatable song.

“Funny how you haven’t changed a bit // You’re twice as pretty // Glad you finally got to see New York City // I know it’s not a race, but looks like you’re getting over me faster than I’m getting over you // But hey // What you gonna do.”

It seems Hunt is ready to continue to release more music and play shows again, so we’re excited to see what he has up his sleeve next. It’s clear from his social media that he is constantly writing, so we’re sure fans are in store for something big. Until then, congrats to Hunt and his team on their eighth number one song!

Jake Owen’s “Made For You” Lands Him His 9th Number One Song

Multi-platinum singer-songwriter Jake Owen lands his ninth career number one song at country radio this week with “Made For You”.

Almost a year ago, Jake Owen’s single “Made For You” impacted country radio. The romantic love song was a hit from the start with other country musicians and fans alike. Today, the song hit the top spot on the country charts, marking Owen’s ninth #1 song of his career.

Written by Benjy Davis, Joey Hyde, and Neil Medley, the ballad is all about how love makes your life. It is one of those songs that are so special and heartfelt, making anyone who has ever experienced love feel something. “Made For You” is the fourth radio single off Owen’s latest record Greetings From… Jake. The song is clearly tailor-made for wedding season, and now is the perfect time for the song to peak.

“Early curfews are made for sneakin’ past // Two AM was made for pissed off dads // And I was made for you, yeah I was made for you // like a ship without a sea // Or a song without a melody // I don’t know where I’d be or what I’d do // ‘Cause I was made for you”

Owen has been rather quiet this year, but it’s clear the singer is getting ready to release more music and a new project sooner rather than later. We are excited for what’s next for Owen. Until then, congrats to Jake Owen and his team for another smash hit with “Made For You!”

Tenille Arts Scores First #1 Song with “Somebody Like That”

Rising star Tenille Arts lands her very first career number one song at country radio this week with “Somebody Like That”.

For the second week in a row, a female country artist has the top song on the country music charts! Following Gabby Barrett, newcomer and NYCountry Swag 2021 Artist to Watch, Tenille Arts has landed her first number one song with her current radio single “Somebody Like That.”

Back in 2020, when we reviewed Arts’ record Love, Heartbreak & Everything In Between, we coined her single “one to watch,” and it looks like we were right. The songstress is one of those singer-songwriters that feels like your best friend giving you great advice. Her song “Somebody Like that” is all about not settling in a relationship until you find a love like no other. Her confidence, pride, and power all come through in this anthemic single. The infectious country-pop song is the perfect introduction to all of Arts’ talents!

“But I want that all in, falling’ // Keep the fire burning like the first time feeling // No matter what if I’m gonna love // I’m gonna love somebody like that // Kinda heart, open arms // Says forever and will never ever take it back // If I’m gonna love // I’m gonna love somebody like that”

We are excited to see what is in store for Arts as her career continues to blossom. We also hope that this is a turning of the tides for female artists in the industry, as more and more, get the recognition they deserve on radio.

Congrats to Tenille Arts and her team!

Gabby Barrett Lands Second Consecutive #1 Single with “The Good Ones”

Gabby Barret lands her second consecutive number one song at country radio this week with “The Good Ones”, following her massive debut single, “I Hope”.

Gabby Barrett has had much success in her blossoming career in the industry. Her sassy debut single “I Hope” soared to the top of the charts and subsequently went 5x double platinum. Now, her follow-up single, “The Good Ones” is following suit,” rising to the number one spot on the country charts this week.

Her first single may have been a sassy one, but “The Good Ones” is a straight-up love song that we all swoon listening to. The lyrics highlight what it feels like to be in a relationship that is full of mutual love and respect. Barrett shares all the things she loves about her man.

“A love me like he should one // Like he wrote the book one // The kind you find when you don’t even look one // Anybody can be good one // But he’s good all the time // He’s one of the good ones // And he’s all mine // He’s one of the good ones”

Although the representation of female singer-songwriters on the radio is still not enough, it is exciting to see Barrett break down molds. Like fellow female artists, Maren Morris and Kelsea Ballerini, Barrett is proving to have radio success with her singles, as women continue to break glass ceilings in and beyond the music industry.

Congrats to Barrett and her team!

Chris Stapleton Lands #1 Song with “Starting Over”

Chris Stapleton lands the number one song in country radio this week with, “Starting Over”, the title track off his latest album.

If there is one male artist in country music that is due for some much-needed mainstream success, it’s Chris Stapleton. The singer-songwriter is a force in the genre, and it’s about time he gets some radio play. After sitting at number seven on the charts just last week, Stapleton’s current radio single “Starting Over” soared to the top spot! It is now the number one song on country radio.

Despite how talented Stapleton is both as a songwriter and a vocalist, he has had some difficulty in his career getting the support of radio. Things have shifted lately, and Stapleton finds himself getting some justifiable mainstream recognition. Despite not always having radio support, The 5x GRAMMY-award winner has always been an industry favorite. “Starting Over” is the perfect song for Stapleton to shine with now for industry, fans, and commercial success alike. The title track to his latest album, released back in November, is all about keeping our loved ones close, a message we could all use!

“It don’t matter to me // Wherever we are is where I wanna be // And honey for once in your life // Let’s take our chances and roll the dice // I can be your lucky penny // You can be my four-leaf clover // Starting over”

“Starting Over” marks the singer’s third number-one single of his career, following the likes of hit songs “Tennessee Whiskey” and “Broken Halos.” We hope this new hit song starts a trajectory of even more for Stapleton.

Congrats to Stapleton and his team on the success!

Florida Georgia Line Lands 18th Career #1 Song with “Long Live”

Florida Georgia Line lands the number one song in country radio this week with, “Long Live”. Marking the duo’s 18th career chart-topper, just after earning their 17th hit back in September with “I Love My Country”.

Platinum-selling country duo Florida Georgia Line have been a staple in the country music world for several years now. With hits like “Cruise,” “Meant to Be,” and “Dirt” under their belt, the hitmakers cannot seem to slow down. Despite the fact that the two men are embarking on their own solo projects, their most recent radio single, “Long Live” just went number one on the charts, marking their 18th chart-topper.

Written by FGL boys Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley with Corey Crowder, David Garcia, and Josh Miller, “Long Live” is a quintessential FGL song. Their smooth vibratos, catchy lyrics, and enticing voices are exactly what we have come to love from the duo. It is clear that fans agree that their music is what we need right now.

“Having our fans and Country radio support us all of these years has been nothing short of a blessing,” shares FGL’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley in a recent press release. “We couldn’t imagine a better song to mark our 18th! Here’s to all of the good times and to many more ‘Long Live’ nights!”

Brett Young Lands #1 Song At Country Radio with “Lady”

Brett Young lands the number one song at country radio this week with “Lady,” inspired by his wife Taylor Mills and daughter, Presley. The news comes just days after the singer revealed that their family is expecting baby girl number two, due this summer.

It has been a huge week for country crooner, Brett Young. Not only did Young celebrate his 40th birthday, but he also revealed the gender of his second baby on The Kelly Clarkson Show. On the heels of the news that he and Mills are having their second daughter, the singer also scored his 7th number one single with his song “Lady.” Follow us on Instagram for clips from each of Young’s hits live from New York City back in February 2020.

Serendipitous as can be, it could not be any sweeter for the Young family. Just as his last number one hit, “Catch” was inspired by his life experiences, “Lady” was as well. The song was written for his wife and his daughter. Inspired by fatherhood and seeing his wife as a mother for the first time, “Lady” is one of Young’s most emotive and heartwarming songs to date. It’s obvious why the song connects with so many country music fans.

We first heard the beautiful song back in February 2020 during Young’s sold-out New York City show. Check out the video below of its first live performance before the track was officially released…

“I hope you look just like your momma // And love her like I do // You’ll see close to perfect patience / If you watch her every move // You can always run to daddy // You’ll always be my baby, // but, Look at her, baby girl // And you’ll learn // How to be a lady”

It is even more exciting that the singer will now be able to share this song with his new baby, due this summer. In the five years Young has been in the mainstream country music scene, he has scored hit songs with six out of his seven singles, as well as, garnered a dedicated fanbase across the world.

Congrats to Brett and his team!

Thomas Rhett Lands 17th Number One Song with “What’s Your Country Song?”

Thomas Rhett’s ‘What’s Your Country Song?”, the leading single off his forthcoming double album project, earns him his 17th number one song as the tune hits the top spot on the country charts this week.

Platinum-selling superstar, Thomas Rhett may honestly be one of the most respected names in the country genre right now. Between his openness with fans about his family and his career, and his incredible songwriting, it seems Rhett can do no wrong in the eyes of the industry and fans alike. After securing his 16th number one single back in September with “Be A Light,” the singer has already added another hit to his repertoire. “What’s Your Country Song” is officially the #1 song on the country charts, solidifying Rhett’s 17th top song of his career.

An instant classic, “What’s Your Country Song” is one of the best new tracks to come out of quarantine. Rhett utilized his time off to be with his family and clearly to write hits. The song is nostalgic for any listener. The entertainer taps into our hearts, as we all reminisce about the songs that transport us back to a certain moment in time.

“Everybody got a small town anthem // Everybody got a story to tell / Everybody got a hallelujah // Everybody been through a little hell // When you’re rolling down a two-lane highway  // And you turn your radio on // Tell me which one hits you, baby // Yeah, what’s your country song”

Thomas Rhett fans are in for a real treat this year. The singer has already announced that a double album is coming down the pipeline. The project titled Country Again Side A & Side B will both be released this year, with the former slated to come out on April 30th. It’s all good news for Rhett and his fanbase!

Parmalee Scores #1 Song with “Just The Way” featuring Blanco Brown

Parmalee’s “Just The Way” featuring Blanco Brown earns them number one song as the tune hits the top spot on the country charts this week.

It has been seven years, since country band, Parmalee found themselves at the top of the charts with “Carolina.” Now, their smash hit with fellow artist and friend, Blanco Brown, “Just The Way” revitalized their career and exponentially grew their prospective fanbase. Today the upbeat song found its way to the top of the country charts, marking Brown’s first number one on country radio.

Written by Matt Thomas, Kevin Bard, and Nolan Sipe, “Just The Way” is a song that encourages acceptance and loving people for who they are. Boasting equality, it is refreshing to see a song like this take the number one spot on the charts. The song shares the impossible task of being perceived as perfect on social media and to society, adding that flaws are really what makes us human.

“I love you just the way God made you // Girl, he don’t make mistakes // What you call your imperfections // I call beautiful, babe // So let my eyes be your mirror // And you’re bound to see it too // ‘Cause I was made for loving // Just the way God made you”

Parmalee and Brown take turns singing their prospective verses. During the chorus and bridge, the band and singer show how effortless their voices mesh together, as well as, how incredibly talented they all are.

Congrats to Parmalee and Brown on their hit!

Niko Moon Scores His First Number One Song with “GOOD TIME”

Niko Moon’s “GOOD TIME” earns him his first number one song as the tune hits the top spot on the country charts this week.

Niko Moon is an artist and a songwriter that we have believed in from day one! Right before the world shut down last year, we featured him in one of our Live Swag Sessions, where he sang “GOOD AT LOVING YOU” and of course, “GOOD TIME”, just before sitting down to chat about the music. Now, we all get to celebrate as Moon’s first single to country radio, “GOOD TIME” is officially the number one song on Country Radio.

With an unbelievable zest for life, Moon proves that a happy song is exactly what we need right now. “GOOD TIME” is exactly what it sounds like, a song that makes you just want to kick back, let go of your worries, and just vibe with the song. His debut single shows an authentic blending of genres with a universal message of highlighting positivity and happiness at the forefront.

“I’ve got some good news y’all! “GOOD TIME” is number one on the radio y’all! It’s the number one song on country radio,” shared Moon in an Instagram video from earlier today, “and it’s all because of y’all! It’s all because y’all supported me through this crazy past year and I just wanted to tell y’all how much y’all mean to me”.

Moon is one of those artists that will continue to sneak up on you. His undeniable charm and charisma is one of a kind, and we cannot wait to see how the NYCountry Swag 2021 Artist to Watch continues to blossom this year. When live music makes a full comeback, we’re sure that Niko Moonwill be one of the first to get back out there and start the party again for his fans!
