Kevin Welch Starts 2019 With Another Week Atop The MusicRow Top Songwriter Chart

Kevin Welch begins the new year as he left it last year on the MusicRow Top Songwriter Chart; at the No. 1 spot.

The holiday season did not alter the positions of the top four on the Top Songwriter Chart. Following Welch, is Ashley Gorley at No. 2, Shane McAnally at No. 3 and Luke Combs at No. 4.

The No. 5 slot on the MusicRow Chart is occupied by Justin Ebach, who moved up three slots from No. 8. Ebach is advanced by songs like Maddie & Tae’s “Friends Don’t,” Dustin Lynch’s “Good Girl” and Brett Young’s “Here Tonight.”

The last chart of 2018 did not feature a female songwriter under No. 35. The first Songwriter Chart of 2019 does not see a woman until Laura Veltz at No. 42.

The weekly MusicRow Top Songwriter Chart, published every week, uses algorithms based upon song activity according to airplay, digital downloaded track sales and streams. This unique and exclusive addition to the MusicRow portfolio is the only songwriter chart of its kind.
