It’s a clean slate this week as we mark the first MusicRow Top Songwriter Chart of 2023. However, this week’s top five includes a familiar crop of hitmakers.
Leading the way, and continuing steam from sitting atop the chart for the last 13 weeks of 2022, is Zach Bryan. The Oklahoma native has five of his own songs currently at play on the chart, including “Something In The Orange,” “Oklahoma Smokeshow,” “Sun To Me,” “The Good I’ll Do” and “Burn, Burn, Burn.” As the only writer on each of the tracks, he receives all of the points earned from airplay, digital download track sales and streams on the Songwriter Chart.
Following at No. 2 is Morgan Wallen with seven entries this week, including his own “One Thing At A Time,” “Tennessee Fan,” “Thought You Should Know,” “Wasted On You” and “You Proof.” The Big Loud singer-songwriter also has a co-writing credit on Keith Urban’s “Brown Eyes Baby” and Corey Kent’s “Wild As Her.”
Filling out the remainder of the top five are Ashley Gorley (No. 3), Ernest Keith Smith (No. 4) and Luke Combs (No. 5).
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.
