Dustin Lynch’s “Small Town Boy” is No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart for the fourth consecutive week, a feat no other country song has accomplished in 2017.
Four songs had three-week reigns atop the Airplay chart in 2017—including Blake Shelton’s “A Guy With a Girl,” Jon Pardi’s “Dirt on My Boots,” Sam Hunt’s “Body Like a Back Road” and Billy Currington’s “Do I Make You Wanna”—but Dustin’s “Small Town Boy” is the only single to secure the No. 1 postion for four weeks.
“I always knew ‘Small Town Boy’ was something special, but to be number one for four weeks is absolutely incredible,” says Dustin. “It’s been amazing to see people embrace this song and to have the continued support of country radio.”
Thomas Rhett’s 2016 hit, “Die a Happy Man,” was the last song to top the Airplay chart for four weeks. TR’s tune remained No. 1 for six weeks from January to February 2016.
Check back next week to see if Dustin can make it five weeks in a row.
