Sam Hunt’s ‘Body Like a Back Road’ Tops Billboard Country Airplay Chart
Sam Hunt's name always seems to be inked on the radio charts, and this week his latest single, "Body Like a Back Road," puts the pop-country hitmaker back at No. 1.
Securing the top spot on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, "Body Like a Back Road," has now tattooed itself to three country-specific component charts. Besides Country Airplay, the song has also spent several weeks at No. 1 on the Country Digital Song Sales and Country Streaming Songs listings.
After peaking at No. 6, "Body Like a Back Road" is currently No. 11 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart, still above major songs like "It Ain't Me" by Kygo and Selena Gomez and the Chainsmokers' "Paris." It's Hunt's highest charting song ever on the Hot 100, beating out 2015's "Take Your Time," which peaked at No. 20.
Hunt has enjoyed chart success since his inception as an artist, landing five No. 1s on the Billboard Country Airplay chart ("Body Like a Back Road," "Make You Miss Me," "House Party," "Take Your Time," "Leave the Night On") and scoring on various other charts, including Adult Pop Songs, Hot Country Song, Heatseekers Songs and more.
Hunt's MCA Nashville labelmate Josh Turner topped the other major country radio chart (Mediabase country radio airplay) this week with his single "Hometown Girl." It's the first time Turner has gone No. 1 in nearly seven years, since the release of 2010's "All Over Me."
