Harmony quartet Little Big Town first appeared on our charts in 2002. Thirteen radio singles and four albums later, fans -- not radio programmers -- give the vocal group its first No. 1 song. Their previous high was at No. 4 on Hot Country Songs six years ago.
In a rare promotional double-take, Tim McGraw debuts a pair of singles on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart -- one from new record label Big Machine, and one from Curb Records, with whom he is engaged in a contract dispute.
Brantley Gilbert makes it two in a row atop Country Songs, as "You Don't Know Her Like I Do" leaps 3-1 in its 32nd chart week -- that's one week faster than his No. 1 peak with "Country Must Be Country Wide," which crowned the chart dated Dec. 3, 2011.
