Gabby Barrett's "I Hope" tops Billboard's airplay-, sales- and streaming-based Hot Country Songs chart for a 24th week (on the list dated Jan. 16), tying Florida Georgia Line's "Cruise" for the third-longest reign since the chart began as an all-encompassing genre ranking in October 1958.
"Cruise" dominated for 24 frames in 2012-13.
FGL retains the crown as "Meant to Be," with Bebe Rexha, ruled for a record 50 weeks in 2017-18. Sam Hunt's "Body Like a Back Road" ranks second with 34 weeks at No. 1 in 2017.
