Sam Hunt’s “Body Like a Back Road remains at the top of the Hot Country Songs chart — which in addition to radio airplay, also factors in streaming and digital sales – for a 21st week. Last week, the song broke the record for longest stay at No. 1 for a solo artist, bypassing Leroy Van Dyke’s 1961 hit “Walk on By.” By the way, Florida Georgia Line hold the record for longest time overall at No. 1 on the Hot Country Songs with “Cruise” at 24 weeks.
