Morgan is just the second person to lead the Hard Rock Songwriters chart, as the list launched with the edition dated June 13. He succeeds Godsmack frontman Sully Erna, who reigned for seven weeks and now places at No. 2.

Kevin Churko logs a third week at No. 1, as Five Finger Death Punch's "A Little Bit Off" (which he co-produced with FFDP) spends its fourth week at No. 1 on Hot Hard Rock Songs and Cory Marks' "Outlaws & Outsiders," featuring Travis Tritt, Ivan Moody and Mick Mars (solely produced by Churko), ranks at No. 13.

The weekly Hard Rock Songwriters and Hard Rock Producers charts are based on total points accrued by a songwriter and producer, respectively, for each attributed song that appears on the Hot Hard Rock Songs chart; As with Billboard's yearly recaps, multiple writers or producers split points for each song equally (and the dividing of points will lead to occasional ties on rankings).
