With his new No. 1, Moore also logs his biggest weekly audience sum, 46.9 million impressions, up 3 percent, according to Nielsen BDS.
"Night" is from Moore's third studio album, and second No. 1 on Top Country Albums, "Off the Beaten Path."
Meanwhile, with Hot Shot Debut honors, Kenny Chesney plants the lead single from his upcoming album at No. 27 on Country Airplay, as "American Kids" bows with 12.9 million in first-week audience. Amid rampant speculation that the new album will be released before the end of the third quarter this year, no title or release date has yet been revealed.
"Kids" marks Chesney's 10th top-30 debut on Country Airplay. Dating to the chart's Jan. 20, 1990, launch, the sum is the best of any artist; Garth Brooks ranks second with seven such lofty launches.
The new song, which bounces to a beach-party summertime vibe, also brings multiple former Billboard chart smashes to Country Airplay, thanks to its fun lyrics. "We were Jesus save me, blue jean baby, born in the U.S.A." Chesney sings, evoking Bruce Springsteen. Later in the chorus, he references Katy Perry, musing that, "We were teenage dreamin'."
John Mellencamp also receives a tribute, with Chesney reminiscing about "growin' up in little pink houses."
