“I never want to back myself into a corner,” says Aldean, photographed Aug. 22, 2016 at Urban Cowboy in Nashville.

13 years, 20 No. 1s.

Jason Aldean banks his 20th No. 1 on Billboard's Country Airplay chart, as "Girl Like You" ascends 2-1 on the list dated Feb. 2. The song gained by 6 percent to 39.4 million audience impressions in the week ending Jan. 24, according to Nielsen Music.

Aldean ties for the seventh-most Country Airplay No. 1s, with Brooks & Dunn, Luke Bryan and Toby Keith, since the chart launched in 1990. Kenny Chesney leads with 30 No. 1s.   

"Girl" is the third single and third Country Airplay No. 1 from Aldean's album Rearview Town, which debuted atop the all-genre Billboard 200 and Top Country Albums charts last April. First single "You Make It Easy" led Country Airplay for two weeks last May 5, followed by "Drowns the Whiskey" (featuring Miranda Lambert), which led for two frames starting in August.

Aldean first ruled Country Airplay with his second entry (of 36 to date), "Why," in May 2006.
