The track is Brooks' first top 10 since 2007's No. 1 "More Than a Memory."
Garth Brooks reaches the top 10 on Billboard's Country Airplay chart for the 35th time, and the first time in almost 10 years, as "Ask Me How I Know" rises 12-10 on the list dated Nov. 4. It gains by 9 percent to 27.5 million in audience, according to Nielsen Music.
The track is the second single from his 2016 Gunslinger set, following the No. 15-peaking "Baby, Let's Lay Down and Dance." The set has sold 126,000 copies, adding to Brooks' standing as the top-selling album artist since Nielsen began tracking sales in 1991. He has sold 71.9 million albums since then. The Beatles follow with 68.9 million, while Metallica ranks third with 58.3 million.
Brooks scores his first Country Airplay top 10 since "More Than a Memory," the only song ever to debut atop the chart. "Memory" soared in at No. 1 on Sept. 15, 2007, becoming his 18th leader. After its week on top, it spent 14 more weeks in the top 10 (through Dec. 22, 2007).
