State of Mine's remake of the '90s country classic debuts at No. 1 on Hot Hard Rock Songs.
Country music legends Garth Brooks and Pat Alger tie at No. 1 on Billboard's Hard Rock Songwriters chart (dated Feb. 6), thanks to State of Mine's amped-up cover, featuring No Resolve, of Brooks' '90s country classic "The Thunder Rolls."
The remake debuts on the Hot Hard Rock Songs chart at No. 1 with 501,000 U.S. streams and 9,000 downloads sold in the week ending Jan. 28, according to MRC Data.
Brooks' original was released on his second LP, 1990's No Fences, and ruled Hot Country Songs for two weeks in June 1991. It became his sixth No. 1 of an eventual 19 to date. The superstar boasts 17 No. 1s on Top Country Albums and is the best-selling album artist (72.6 million) overall since MRC Data began tracking U.S. sales in 1991.
