"Better" follows Combs' last Country Airplay No. 1, "Lovin' on You," which reigned for four weeks starting last September. His latest leader reaches the top in its 16th week, wrapping the speediest coronation since "Lovin'," which needed just 12 weeks.
'DOWN' IS UP Speaking of Luke Bryan, he lands his 31st Country Airplay top 10 as "Down to One" ascends 11-9 (19.3 million impressions, up 8%). He ties Rascal Flatts for the 13th-most top 10s since the chart launched in January 1990. George Strait leads with 61 top 10s.
'UNDIVIDED' ATTENTION Following its first five days of availability, Tim McGraw and Tyler Hubbard's "Undivided" vaults onto Country Airplay at No. 19 with 10.3 million impressions. The track, an upbeat call for unity, was released as a stand-alone single Jan. 13 and received hourly plays that day on participating iHeartMedia stations.
Hubbard, who co-wrote "Undivided" with Chris Loocke, charts his first Billboard entry apart from Florida Georgia Line. The duo, also comprising Brian Kelley, has rolled up 14 Country Airplay No. 1s since the pair arrived in 2012 with its first leader, "Cruise."
FGL has made its highest Country Airplay entrance with "Dirt," which opened at No. 14 in July 2014 then hit No. 1 that October.
For McGraw, "Undivided" marks his second-highest debut, tied with "Speak to a Girl," with his wife Faith Hill; it debuted and peaked at No. 19 in April 2017. He's made his strongest start with his Kenny Chesney collab "Feel Like a Rock Star," which bounded in at No. 13 in April 2012 before peaking at No. 11 the next month.
McGraw and Hubbard previously topped Country Airplay together via FGL's "May We All," featuring McGraw, for two weeks in December 2016.
Meanwhile, FGL's current single, "Long Live," lifts 15-14 on the latest list.
McGraw and Hubbard will appear together on the Tom Hanks-hosted special Celebrating America, airing Wednesday (Jan. 20) beginning at 8 p.m. ET across ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC and NBC to commemorate the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
