Black River Entertainment’s Kelsea Ballerini is celebrating her fifth No. 1 single with “Miss Me More” topping the Mediabase country singles chart, breaking the dry spell of solo female country artists at No. 1 on country radio for the first time in over 15 months. The track rose two spots this week to take the lead, up from its third place position on last week’s chart.

The previous most-recent No. 1 song from a solo female country artist was Ballerini’s own “Legends,” which topped the Country Airplay chart and the Mediabase country chart on Feb. 20, 2018.

“Miss Me More” and “Legends” are both from Ballerini’s sophomore album Unapologetically. Ballerini’s No. 1 singles count is now at five, following “Love Me Like You Mean It,” “Dibs,” and “Peter Pan,” all from her debut album The First Time.

Congratulations poured in from her fellow artists, including Maren Morris, whose own single “GIRL” sits in the Top 10 on the Mediabase chart. Others chiming in included Kelly Clarkson, Cassadee Pope, Carly Pearce, and more.
