LBT earns its third No. 1, while Swift scores her eighth as a writer.
Little Big Town notches its third No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart (dated Feb. 11), as the Taylor Swift-penned "Better Man" climbs 2-1. The act inks its first No. 1 since "Girl Crush" ruled for 13 weeks beginning May 9, 2015. LBT first led with "Pontoon" for two weeks in 2012.
"Man" tops Country Digital Song Sales for a second week (26,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen Music) and rises 6-4 on Country Airplay (35.2 million impressions) and 7-6 on Country Streaming Songs (4.2 million U.S. streams).
Notably, the track is the first Hot Country Songs leader penned by only one person since Tim McGraw's "Humble and Kind," written by singer-songwriter Lori McKenna (April 23, 2016). Before "Humble," Swift had scored the last single-author No. 1: her own "Ours" (March 31, 2012). "Man" is additionally the first Hot Country Songs No. 1 by a group penned by just one author since The Band Perry's "If I Die Young," written by the act's Kimberly Perry, topped the Dec. 11, 2010, chart.
