Florida Georgia Line Lands 10th Country Airplay No. 1 With 'May We All,' Featuring Tim McGraw
Florida Georgia Line's "May We All," featuring Tim McGraw, ascends 2-1 on Billboard's Country Airplay chart (dated Dec. 10), gaining 4 percent to 46 million audience impressions, according to Nielsen Music.
The song marks the 10th Country Airplay No. 1 for the duo (Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley) and follows "H.O.L.Y." as the second leader from the pair's third studio LP, Dig Your Roots. McGraw earns his record-extending 29th Country Airplay No. 1 (dating to the chart's Jan. 20, 1990, launch); Kenny Chesney ranks second, with 27.
"Billboard No. 1s never get old, and it's very humbling to share it with Tim. He takes the song to another level," says Hubbard. "Very excited to get the text this morning about having [another] No. 1 … and being able to pass the info. on to Tim was the best part," adds Kelley.
GARTH & TRISHA TOGETHER FOR 'CHRISTMAS': Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood's Christmas Together hikes 83 percent to 39,000 sold; however, in its second week on Top Country Albums, it dips 1-2, displaced by Miranda Lambert's The Weight of These Wings.
The husband-and-wife team also ranks at No. 14 on Top Country Albums. In a Walmart exclusive, Christmas Together was bundled with Brooks' new solo album Gunslinger and shifted 7,000 through the big-box retailer in the tracking week. Gunslinger went on sale in wide release on Nov. 25.
STRAIT TALK: Also on Top Country Albums, George Strait's Strait Out of the Box: Part 2 arrives at No. 3 (21,000). The 56-song Walmart exclusive follows the original Strait Out of the Box, which peaked at No. 9 in 1995.
