Sam Hunt’s single “Body Like a Back Road” has claimed a new title.
The single went to number-one on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart over six months ago, where it has remained for 25 consecutive weeks, breaking the record for most weeks atop the nearly 59-year-old chart.
It has also been in the Top 5 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart for 16 straight weeks, longer than any other song in the chart’s 25-year history.
Billy Currington has the number-one song in country music this week. "Do I Make You Wanna" has peaked at the top of the Mediabase Country Airplay chart, giving Billy his 11th number-one hit. He refers to this song as a throwback to his first number-one hit, "Must Be Doing Something Right." Billy is out on his Stay Up 'Til the Sun tour through next month.
Thomas Rhett’s new album has a release date…
Sam Hunt isn’t 100% into music…
Thomas Rhett's new album, titled Life Changes will be out on September 8th.
Thomas said about the album, "I am and will always be a country artist. It's who I am, it's in my blood. I will always try to push boundaries because that rebellious side has been in me since I was a kid. My voice and my journey that inspired these songs is the glue that makes this album cohesive. This is where I'm at musically, and these are my stories."
Sam Hunt's priorities have changed. In a recent interview he explained that after years of working, he is ready for a personal life.
He said, "I’m in a place in my career and in my life where I’m not willing to give music 100 percent of me anymore. I did that for four years, and it was fruitful as far as my career goes, but everything else in my life had to be put on hold, and I’m just not willing to do that for years and years at a time.”
To be clear, he's not abandoning music, he's just creating room in his life for other things.
