The Grammy Effect On The MusicRow Top Songwriter Chart

Some songwriters on the MusicRow Top Songwriter Chart found themselves benefitting from the Grammy effect this week, including Best Country Song co-writer Shane McAnally, who advanced two spots to No. 1 this week. McAnally is supported by seven songs this week: Midland’s “Burn Out,” Old Dominion’s “Make It Sweet,” Jake Owen’s “Down To The Honky Tonk,” Eli Young Band’s “Love Ain’t,” Brothers Osborne’s” I Don’t Remember Me (Before You),” and Kacey Musgraves’ “Space Cowboy” and “Rainbow.”

Kacey Musgraves finds herself at No. 19 after many months of not appearing in the top 60 on the Top Songwriter Chart. Luke Laird also made a huge leap from No. 23 to No. 9 with the help of some Grammy-induced listening, co-writing Musgraves’ “Space Cowboy” and “Butterflies” with Natalie Hemby (No. 45), along with Owen’s “Down To The Honky Tonk.”

Ashley Gorley moves down to No. 2 this week, and Kevin Welch follows him at No. 3. Brett James and Luke Combs stay in place at No. 4 and 5, respectively.

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.
