HARDY notches his fourth top 10 as a recording artist on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart as “Truck Bed” revs from No. 12 to No. 9 on the Feb. 3-dated tally. It increased by 2% to 18.9 million in audience during the Jan. 19-25 tracking week, according to Luminate.

The song is the sophomore single from HARDY’s The Mockingbird & The Crow, which launched at No. 1 on the Top Country Albums chart dated Feb. 4, 2023, marking his first leader. It follows “Wait in the Truck” (featuring Lainey Wilson), which hit No. 2 on Country Airplay last April.


Prior to “Wait in the Truck,” HARDY’s “Beers on Me,” with Dierks Bentley and BRELAND, led Country Airplay for one week in April 2022 and “One Beer,” featuring Lauren Alaina and Devin Dawson, ruled for one frame in December 2020.

HARDY has co-written 11 Country Airplay No. 1s, including those two chart-toppers; he first reigned as a writer thanks to Morgan Wallen’s “Up Down,” featuring Florida Georgia Line, in June 2018. “Truck Bed” is HARDY’s 14th top 10 as a writer. He co-authored “Truck Bed” with Ashley Gorley, Ben Johnson and Hunter Phelps.

Brown’s 12th Top 10
Kane Brown’s “I Can Feel It” enters the Country Airplay top 10, pushing 11-10 (18.9 million, up 2%). He achieves his 12th top 10, with his latest following five consecutive No. 1s, each of which dominated for one week: “Bury Me in Georgia,” which led last September; “Thank God,” with Katelyn Brown, his wife (February 2023); “Like I Love Country Music” (August 2022); “One Mississippi” (March 2022); and “Famous Friends,” with Chris Young (July 2021).

Brown logged his first of 10 Country Airplay No. 1s with “What Ifs,” featuring Lauren Alaina, for two weeks in October 2017. He subsequently led with “Heaven” (two weeks, May 2018); “Lose It” (one week, December 2018); “Good as You” (one, June 2019); and “Homesick” (two, March 2020). He has also hit the top 10 with “Cool Again” (No. 3, September 2020).

Still on ‘Fire’
Nate Smith’s “World on Fire” leads Country Airplay for a seventh total and consecutive week (34.2 million, down 4%). It became his second straight career-opening No. 1, following “Whiskey on You,” which dominated for two weeks last February.

“World on Fire” marks the first title to crown Country Airplay for at least seven frames since Morgan Wallen’s crossover smash “Last Night” reigned for eight beginning last May.
