The newly-crowned ACM Songwriter of the Year Ashley Gorley marks another week at No. 1 on the MusicRow Top Songwriter Chart, with a whopping 14 songs on the country charts. Announced during the ACM Awards festivities last week, this was Gorley’s first-ever win for ACM Songwriter of the Year after 10 nominations.
In addition to his Songwriter of the Year win, Gorley joined the elite company of Merle Haggard and Kris Kristofferson with three Song of the Year nods in a single year, becoming the third person to achieve the feat in ACM’s history. With good odds, Gorley did take home a Song of the Year trophy during the livestreamed ACM Awards for “She Had Me at Heads Carolina,” recorded by Cole Swindell.
Another ACM winner, Male Artist of the Year Morgan Wallen, remains at No. 2 on the MusicRow Top Songwriter Chart this week. New Male Artist of the Year winner Zach Bryan remains at No. 4 and Artist-Songwriter of the Year Michael Hardy is at No. 23.
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.
