Thomas Rhett’s ‘Country Again’ Reaches No. 1 On Billboard’s Country Airplay Chart

Country star Thomas Rhett‘s has earned his seventeenth No. 1 song on Billboard‘s Country Airplay chart with “Country Again.”

“Country Again” rose 3-1 on the Country Airplay chart dated September 18, seeing a 12 percent increase to 28.2 million audience impressions in the tracking week ended September 12, according to MRC Data.

“No. 1 singles are always something I cherish, but this one especially,” Rhett told Billboard. “This song was such a central part of how I processed the last couple of years of my life.”

“So, to have it resonate with people the way it has and to have it sung back to me every night on the road, now that we’re able to tour again, it’s just been kind of the perfect punctuation point to this chapter for me,” he added.

“Country Again,” which Rhett co-wrote with Zach Crowell and Ashley Gorley, is the second single from his fifth full-length album, Country Again: Side A.

Country Again: Side A debuted at No. 2 on Billboard‘s Top Country Albums chart in May, while the release of Side B is expected later this year.
