Weekly Register: Sam Hunt’s “Body Like A Back Road” Makes History

Sam Hunt

Sam Hunt remains the king of the hill as his monster smash “Body Like A Back Road” continues to dominate the Nielsen Soundscan country digital sales chart with 42K moved this week and 1.430 million sold to date.

The song reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart more than six months ago, and it has been entrenched in the top position for 25 weeks, breaking the record for most weeks atop the nearly 59-year-old chart.

Rounding out the top five in the country digital sales rankings are Dustin Lynch‘s “Small Town Boy” at No. 2, with 16K, Kane Brown‘s “What Ifs” at No. 3, also with 16K, Lady Antebellum‘s “You Look Good,” at No. 4 with 14K, and Brett Young‘s runaway hit “In Case You Didn’t Know” at No. 5 with 14K.

Chris Stapleton

Chris Stapleton continues his steady sales pace this week, moving another 10K units on his latest CD, From A Room: Vol. 1, which has logged 465K in sales to date and has already reached gold status. Trailing behind Stapleton is Sara Evans, whose first indie project Words bows with 9.9K for the week to land at No. 2. Lucas Hoge lands in third for the week with 7.1K for his Dirty South project, followed by Stapleton’s Traveller at No. 4 with 6.9K and Various Artists on Now Country 10 at No. 5 with 6.1K.
