The tandem of Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard pass Rascal Flatts for the second-most leaders among duos and groups in the chart’s 31-year history, after Brooks & Dunn’s 20. Among all acts, Kenny Chesney leads with 31 No. 1s.
“Live,” which Hubbard and Kelley wrote with Corey Crowder, David Garcia and Josh Miller, marks FGL’s first Country Airplay leader since “Simple” in October 2018. In between, the act hit a No. 2 high with “I Love My Country” last September.
FGL first led Country Airplay with their debut single “Cruise” for three frames in December 2012. Helped by its pop crossover success, the song dominated the multi-metric Hot Country Songs chart for 24 weeks.
Meanwhile, Hubbard’s duet with Tim McGraw, “Undivided,” his first solo single, ranks at No. 20 on Country Airplay (11 million, up 6%).Credit: Original article published here.
