Kane Brown’s “Heaven” has arrived as the top song on Billboard’s country airplay chart. It ascended to that lofty perch after a 28-week climb.
Albumwise, Jason Aldean’s Rearview Town springs back to No. 1, where it made its debut week before last.
There’s very little fresh activity to report — just one new album and song. They are, respectively, The Lacs’ Dirt Rock, which clambers aboard at No. 24, and Aldean’s “Drowns the Whiskey,” featuring Miranda Lambert, coming in at No. 50.
Chris Janson’s “Drunk Girl” staggers back aboard at No. 31. The No. 2 through No. 5 albums this week, in that order, are Luke Combs’ This One’s for You, Keith Urban’s Graffiti U. (last week’s No. 1), the self-titled Kane Brown and Thomas Rhett’s Life Changes.
Rounding out the Top 5 most-played songs list are Aldean’s “You Make It Easy” (last week’s No. 1), Combs’ “One Number Away,” Darius Rucker’s “For the First Time” and Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line’s “Meant to Be.”
As customary, when there’s little chart activity to talk about, we console ourselves with a harmless diversion we call “Title Tales.” It involves fusing together two or three song titles from the current country airplay chart to suggest entirely new perspectives or narratives.
For instance, “Heaven/She Ain’t in It” or “Kinda Don’t Care/Most People Are Good” or “Meant to Be/Young Forever.” And how about “Tequila/Weekend?”
OK, your turn.
