"The Weight of the Badge" bows at No. 56.
George Strait makes history as the first artist to tally 100 entries on Billboard's Country Airplay chart, as "The Weight of the Badge" arrives on the Oct. 19-dated tally at No. 56, drawing 1.3 million audience impressions in the week ending Oct. 13, according to Nielsen Music.
Strait's history on Country Airplay dates to the survey's Jan. 20, 1990, inception, when it became the first Billboard chart powered by electronically-monitored Nielsen data. By then, Strait had become an established superstar, having first appeared on Billboard's surveys in 1981.
(On the Hot Country Songs chart, which blends airplay, streaming and sales data, Strait boasts 124 entries, from 1981 through this year.)
