After the monster debut of Morgan Wallen’s new single, “Don’t Think Jesus,” the song’s co-writers Chase McGill, Jessi Alexander and Mark Holman have made strong advances on MusicRow‘s Top Songwriter Chart.
McGill makes his way to No. 6 this week, with credit from “Don’t Think Jesus” as well as Cole Swindell and Lainey Wilson’s “Never Say Never” and Justin Moore’s “With A Woman You Love.” Alexander, who is also a co-writer on “Don’t Think Jesus” and “Never Say Never,” moves up to No. 10 this week. Holman makes it to No. 15 with the Wallen tune and “Flower Shops” by Ernest.
Eric Church remains at No. 1 on the MusicRow Top Songwriter Chart with his solely-written “Heart On Fire.” Because Church is the only writer on “Heart On Fire,” all of the points earned from the song’s airplay, digital download track sales, and streams go entirely to him on the Songwriter Chart.
The weekly MusicRow Top Songwriter Chart uses algorithms based upon song activity according to airplay, digital download track sales and streams. This unique and exclusive addition to the MusicRow portfolio is the only songwriter chart of its kind.
