Kelsea Ballerini's 'Miss Me More' Hits Top 10 On Hot Country Songs Chart
Plus, new top 10s for Jake Owen and Morgan Wallen.
The track is the just the second top 10 for a female artist unaccompanied by another act in 2019, following Maren Morris' "Girl" (No. 9). That's as many as in the same span last year, when the same two artists hit the top 10: Ballerini with "Legends" (No. 10 peak) and Morris with "I Could Use a Love Song" (No. 7).
In 2017, two solo women also reached the region through the same stretch (Lauren Alaina and Carrie Underwood), down from six in 2016 and three in 2015.
"Miss" re-enters Country Streaming Songs at a new No. 14 high, up 30 percent to 5.5 million U.S. streams in the week ending March 28, according to Nielsen Music, while logging 7,000 sold in the same frame (down 2 percent), as it lifts 6-4 on Country Digital Song Sales. The track bumps 12-11 on Country Airplay, with a 5 percent boost to 19.6 million audience impressions in the week ending March 31.
Ballerini is supporting Kelly Clarkson on the latter's Meaning of Life Tour and advising for Clarkson on NBC's The Voice. "Miss," which Ballerini co-wrote, is her first Hot Country Songs top 10 since "Legends." She led the list for two weeks starting Sept. 24, 2016, with "Peter Pan."
UP TO THE TOP 10: Jake Owen banks his ninth Hot Country Songs top 10, as "Down to the Honkytonk" leaps 17-9. It boasts 24.2 million impressions (up 8 percent), as it climbs 10-7 on Country Airplay, 4.9 million U.S. streams (up 36 percent) and 5,000 sold (up 7 percent).
A TOAST FOR WALLEN: Also on Hot Country Songs, Morgan Wallen's "Whiskey Glasses" bumps 12-10 to become his second top 10. It's up 11 percent to 8,000 sold; 9 percent to 16.2 million in radio reach; and 8 percent to 6.2 million U.S. streams. Wallen first hit the top 10 with "Up Down" (featuring Florida Georgia Line; No. 5, June 2018).
