Hot 50 Chart: Southbound hits #1, big moves for Dierks Bentley and Chris Young

by Mallory Arbour

Southbound have shot to the top of the Countrytown Music Network Hot 50 Country Airplay Chart, taking the reins from Casey Barnes who slips back to #2. However, we’ve seen him be in this position before – can he climb his way back up again? Luke Combs comes in at #3 with Forever After All, ahead of Minimum Wage by Blake Shelton (#4) and Canada’s MacKenzie Porter at #5.

Gabby Barrett moves back into the Top 10, coming in at #6 with her award-winning song, The Good Ones. Dierks Bentley makes a HUGE jump up from #24 into #7 this week. Brad Cox‘s Beau In The Back is at #8, with Glad You Exist by Dan + Shay (#9) and Jake Owen completing the Top 10.

There were some big movers on the chart this week, notably Famous Friends by Chris Young and Kane Brown, which jumps almost thirty spaces into #11 – it’s highest ranking yet! Similarly, Jimmie Allen and Brad Paisley are up twenty spaces from last week, coming in at #12 and Michael Waugh flies (pun interned) a monumental thirty-five spaces into #13 with Flying.

The swampy, soulful, Karma by Hayley Jensen leaps an impressive twenty-one spaces into #16. Some slight forward movement by Dylan Scott with Nobody (#19), Sammy White‘s Running Away Tonight (#37), The Bloomvilles feat. Jack Jones (#41) and Matt Ward’s Lost And Found (#44) too.

Roll With It by Dan Davidson feat. The Road Hammers makes its re-entry at #22. Michaela Jenke‘s Stop & Stare (#42) – read what she loves about her hometown of Nuriootpa in this week’s My Countrytown feature here, and Things A Man Oughta Know by Lainey Wilson (#48) also re-enter the chart.

Save You Now by Allison Forbes enters the charts at #29. Andrew Swift feat. Cass Hopetoun‘s Say The Word debuts at #34, ahead of Runaway by indie pop-country artist, Dakota East at #39 – we premiered the music video for here. Other new entries include Paul Field’s This Way To Love and Happiness (#46) and Ain’t For You by Bella Mackenzie (#49).
