Also, Jordan Davis' new EP debuts.

Luke Bryan scores his 30th top 10 on Billboard's Country Airplay chart, as "One Margarita" jumps 16-10 on the list dated June 6. In the week ending May 11, the song increased by 13% to 16.1 million audience impressions, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

The chart is led for a second week by Luke Combs' "Does to Me," featuring Eric Church, with 31.3 million in radio reach. It's Combs' seventh of his eight No. 1s to reign for multiple weeks.

Bryan becomes the 14th artist with at least 30 Country Airplay top 10s since the list launched in January 1990. George Strait ranks first with 61. Bryan initially reached the top 10 with his first of 37 total chart entries, "All My Friends Say," which reached No. 5 in September 2007. Dating to his first week in the upper tier (Sept. 8, 2007), Bryan boasts the most top 10s, breaking out of a tie with Kenny Chesney and Blake Shelton (29 each in that span).

"One Margarita" is the third single from Bryan's seventh full-length, Born Here Live Here Die Here, due Aug. 7, after it was originally scheduled for April 8. He posted a note on his website on April 7 announcing the delay of both the album and his planned tour because of the current COVID-19 crisis.

The lead single from Born, "Knockin' Boots," led Country Airplay for two weeks last September, while sophomore track "What She Wants Tonight" paced the chart for a week in April, marking his 22nd leader.

On the Hot Country Songs chart, which is powered by airplay, streaming and sales data, "One Margarita" remains at its No. 10 high. It hauled in 5.9 million U.S. streams (up 14%) in the week ending May 28 and climbs 23-19 on Country Streaming Songs. It sold 11,000 downloads in the same frame and rules Country Digital Song Sales for a third week.

FGL FLIES IN Florida Georgia Line cracks open its sixth top 10 on Top Country Albums as its new EP 6-Pack debuts at No. 5. In the week ending May 26, the six-song set by the duo of Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley earned 14,000 equivalent album units, including 4,000 in album sales.

The release, produced by Corey Crowder, follows FGL's last full-length, Can't Say I Ain't Country, which bowed in the Top Country Albums penthouse in March 2019 (with 50,000 units), becoming the pair's fourth leader.

The first single from 6-Pack, "I Love My Country," holds at No. 15 on Country Airplay (14.1 million) and pushes 16-12 on Hot Country Songs. It drew 5.7 million steams (up 48%) and sold 4,000 downloads (up 31%) in the tracking week.

Another cut from 6-Pack, "Second Guessing," repeats at No. 29 in its second week on Hot Country Songs. It became the winning song on the second season NBC's songwriting competition Songland and FGL performed it on the season finale on May 18. The song was written by the season's winner, Griffen Palmer and Shane McAnally, who is one of the judges on the show.

DAVIS DEBUTS Jordan Davis posts his second title on Top Country Albums as his self-titled EP arrives at No. 16. In its first week, it earned 8,000 equivalent album units, including 2,000 in album sales. The six-song effort follows Davis' freshman full-length Home State, which entered and peaked at No. 6 in April 2018 (with 11,000 units).

The lead single from the new EP, "Almost Maybes," which Davis co-wrote, re-enters Hot Country Songs at No. 34, a new high. It attracted 3.1 million streams (up 121%) and sold 1,000 downloads (up 8%) in the tracking week.
