Jason Aldean Tops Country Chart With “Any Ol’ Barstool”

Keith Urban's Ripcord Once Again No. 1 Album

Jason Aldean‘s “Any Ol’ Barstool” claims the No. 1 spot on Billboard‘s country airplay chart this week, arriving there at the end of a 21-week climb.

It’s Aldean’s 17th No. 1 single — his 18th, actually, if you count his inclusion on last year’s all-star chart-topper, “Forever Country.”

Keith Urban‘s Ripcord rises up again to hold the summit on Billboard‘s top country albums rankings

There are three new albums — the late Joey Feek‘s If Not for You (debuting at No. 6), the LacsAmerican Rebelution (No. 10) and The Essential Elvis Presley (No. 45).

Brantley Gilbert‘s Just as I Am, a former No. 1, returns to contention at No. 50.

We see two new songs — Eric Church‘s “Round Here Buzz” (No. 53) and Todd O’Neill’s “Love Again” (No. 59).

Rounding out the Top 5 albums, in descending order, are Miranda Lambert‘s The Weight of These Wings (last week’s No. 1), Chris Stapleton‘s Traveller, Florida Georgia Line‘s Dig Your Roots and the eponymous Brett Young.

The No. 2 through No. 5 songs are Sam Hunt‘s “Body Like a Back Road,” Josh Turner‘s “Hometown Girl,” Jon Pardi‘s “Dirt on My Boots” and Luke Combs“Hurricane.”

Last week’s airplay No. 1, Lauren Alaina‘s “Road Less Traveled,” drops to No. 7.

For our Title Tales mashups, we submit “The Weekend/Rebound/Back to God” (Brantley Gilbert/Drew Baldridge/Reba McEntire), “Body Like a Back Road/Yours If You Want It” (Sam Hunt/Rascal Flatts and “Yeah Boy/There’s A Girl/Craving You” (Kelsea Ballerini/Trent Harmon/Thomas Rhett).

So what jammed gems are we overlooking?
