Plus, Kenny Chesney ties for the second-most top 10s.
Hardy scores his first No. 1 as a recording artist on Billboard's Country Airplay chart (dated Dec. 5), as "One Beer," featuring Lauren Alaina and Devin Dawson, rises from No. 3 to the top with 33.1 million audience impressions, up 10%, in the week ending Nov. 29, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
Hardy (whose full name is Michael Wilson Hardy), 30, reigns in his second chart appearance as a recording act, after "Rednecker" reached No. 26 in April 2019.
"This No. 1 is definitely the most special to me," Hardy tells Billboard of the single, released on the Big Loud label. "It takes a lot of work for a young artist to take a song to the top, between that artist and his radio team. So, from the bottom of my heart, I want to say thank you and that I'm very excited for this achievement. I'll definitely be drinking more than 'one beer' tonight."
