As we lift the curtain on the penultimate charts of the year, Mr. Luke Laird adds a fiery fifth consecutive week to his No. 1 chart run while Shane McAnally and Rodney Clawson maintain control over the No. 2 and No. 3 positions respectively. Chris DeStefano and Ashley Gorley must have hopped aboard a reindeer because they both flew up the chart to land at No. 3 and No. 4!
McAnally has a record breaking nine active song titles driving him to No. 2. Impressive new artist Sam Hunt has six songs that made this week’s list and he is the artist on them all!
Will Luke Laird close out the year with a sixth chart topping week? Can McAnally and Clawson keep pace? Check back Monday evening (12/22) and find out. In the meantime click here to see this week’s complete chart.
