Brantley Gilbert‘s new single with Hardy and Toby Keith dominated the most added lists on the Billboard, Mediabase, and MusicRow radio charts this week. “The Worst Country Song Of All Time” gained 141 cumulative adds across all three country charts.
The song also achieved the highest debut across the charts landing at No. 32 on Billboard, No. 44 on Mediabase, and No. 58 on MusicRow. Gilbert penned the single with Hardy, Hunter Phelps, and Will Weatherly.
“Hardy threw the idea on the table, and he said, ‘Guys, I know this is crazy, but I had a title I put down in my phone: ‘The Worst Country Song Of All Time,’” Gilbert elaborates. “We all laughed it off because obviously it was a joke. Then we all were throwing out lines we thought were funny. The next thing you know, we’ve got this song written, and the rest is history in the making.”
