It's his fourth single from Ripcord and looks to join the other three ("Break On Me," "John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16" & "Wasted Time") as a RIAA-certified chart-topping hit. Kenny Chesney's "Setting The World On Fire" features pop/rock star P!NK and has scored the #2 slot with download sales approaching 500k.

Rounding out the Top 5 with thier first radio airplay #1 as artists is LOCASH with "I Know Someobody." The single has scanned 168k to date.

Kelsea Ballerini's "Peter Pan" is next and has scanned 553k to date. Brett Young's "Sleep Without You" is in the Top 10 with 219k downloads to date, a number that has been helped by his run inside the radio airplay Top 10 with this debut for BMLG Records. Finally rounding out the Top 10 is FGL's "H.O.L.Y.," a single which has scanned nearly 1.3 million downloads to date.

Notable Track Notes

Johnny Cash's "Hurt" jumps inside the Top 30 with sales of 11k to bring the total tally to 2.05 million downloads while Carrie Undewood is close to 100k downloads for "Dirty Laundry," the fourth single from her successful Storyteller project. Jon Pardi's "Dirt On My Boots" looks like it's gonna follow "Head Over Boots" as both a radio and digital sales success. Thomas Rhett's "Star Of The Show" is trending towards hit status too. Meanwhile, Cole Swindell and Kane Brown debut with new tracks from newly released (or forthcoming) projects. Brad Paisley's "Today" has sold 59k in three weeks (it debuted at #1) and is already doing better than Demi Lovato duet "Without A Fight" was for the singer.
