新疆手鼓的打法技巧:Jake Owen's John Mellencamp Ode 'I Was Jack (You Were Diane)' Jumps to No. 1 On Country Airplay Chart
Plus, Luke Bryan lands his 26th Country Airplay top 10.
Jake Owen's "I Was Jack (You Were Diane)" ascends 2-1 on Billboard's Country Airplay chart (dated Aug. 4), despite declining by 3 percent to 40.1 million audience impressions in the week ending July 29, according to Nielsen Music.
The nod to John Mellencamp's four-week 1982 Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 "Jack & Diane" (with Mellencamp claiming a writing credit on Owen's hit) is Owen's seventh Country Airplay No. 1, among nine top 10s. He first ruled with "Barefoot Blue Jean Night" for two weeks in September 2011 and had last led with "American Country Love Song" in September 2016.
Meanwhile, as previously reported, Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line claim the record for the longest-ruling No. 1 in the nearly 60-year history of Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart, as "Meant to Be" logs its 35th week in the penthouse. The song passes Sam Hunt's "Body Like a Back Road," which led for 34 weeks in 2017.
Luke Bryan achieves his 26th Country Airplay top 10 and his 25th top 10 promoted single in succession, as "Sunrise, Sunburn, Sunset" darts 13-10 (26.3 million, up 13 percent). Starting with Bryan's second Country Airplay top 10, "Country Man," in 2008, he has rattled off 25 straight top 10s (excluding holiday fare and tracks not promoted to radio), marking the second-longest active streak, after Carrie Underwood's 27.
Additionally, singer-songwriter Lori McKenna logs a new best on Americana/Folk Album Sales, as The Tree debuts at No. 3 (4,000 sold). She previously reached No. 4 with The Bird & the Rifle in 2016. McKenna co-wrote Underwood's latest Country Airplay (and Hot Country Songs) top 10, "Cry Pretty." McKenna recently said of the song's writing session on the Billboard Chart Beat Podcast, "It was just like another girl in the room ... except she can sing like Carrie Underwood."
