The song also arrives as her 96th Hot 100 entry.

Taylor Swift's new holiday single, "Christmas Tree Farm," takes root in the top 10 of Billboard's Adult Contemporary radio airplay chart (dated Dec. 21), sprouting from No. 25 to No. 10 following its first full week of tracking after its Dec. 6 release.

Swift scores her 14th career AC top 10, after first reaching the region with "Teardrops on My Guitar" in March 2008. She boasts seven No. 1s, the most of all artists since "Love Story" became her first leader in June 2009. She most recently reigned with Reputation single "Delicate" last year.

The AC chart measures total weekly plays, as tabulated by Nielsen Music, among its reporting panel of 86 stations, many of which segue to playing holiday music 24/7 during the holiday season.

On the streaming-, airplay- and sales-based Billboard Hot 100, "Tree" debuts at No. 59, marking Swift's 96th entry. The only acts with more: Glee Cast (207), Drake (206), Lil Wayne (163), Elvis Presley (109), Kanye West (107), Nicki Minaj (106), Jay-Z (100) and Chris Brown (98).

"Tree" bows (boughs?) at No. 2 on the Digital Song Sales chart with 26,000 sold in the week ending Dec. 12, as Swift adds her record-extending 49th top 10 on the tally. (Runner-up Drake has 43.)

The track also drew 7.7 million U.S. streams in its first tracking week and starts at No. 19 on the multi-metric Holiday 100 chart. Swift earns her second top 20 hit on the seasonal list, after her cover of Wham!'s "Last Christmas" reached No. 18 in 2012.
