Kane Brown’s ‘One Mississippi’ Reaches No. 1 on Country Airplay Chart

Plus, moves for Morgan Wallen, Luke Combs and more.

Kane Brown nets his seventh No. 1 on Billboard‘s Country Airplay chart as “One Mississippi” ascends to the top of the survey dated March 5.

In the week ending Feb. 27, the song, released on RCA Nashville, increased by 13% to 23.4 million audience impressions, according to MRC Data.

Brown co-penned the single with Jesse Frasure, Levon Gray and Ernest K. Smith. It was produced by Dann Huff.

“‘One Mississippi’ hitting No. 1 means so much to me, not just for my own career but for each of the co-writers,” Brown tells Billboard. “I’m also really proud of Levon Gray, who we signed to our publishing company, Verse 2, after discovering him on Instagram. This is the first song Levon and I wrote together. I couldn’t be happier for him!”

For the 28-year-old Brown, “One” follows his duet with Chris Young, “Famous Friends,” which crowned Country Airplay for a week last July. Brown first led with “What Ifs,” featuring Lauren Alaina, for a week in October 2017. He snapped off four more No. 1 singles consecutively: “Heaven,” two frames in May 2018; “Lose It” (two, December 2018); “Good as You” (one, June 2018); and “Homesick” (two, March 2020).

‘DANGEROUS’ TIES RECORD Morgan Wallen’s Dangerous: The Double Album rules Top Country Albums for a 47th week, with 41,000 equivalent album units earned (down 3%).

The LP is the third longest leading since the chart originated in January 1964, after Luke Combs’ This One’s for You and Shania Twain’s Come on Over, which dominated for 50 weeks beginning in 2017 and 1997, respectively.

Meanwhile on the all-genre Billboard 200, Dangerous ranks at No. 3. It led for 10 weeks starting upon its debut in January 2021 and wrapped as the top title on the year-end Billboard 200 Albums recap.

Notably, the set scores its 58th week in the Billboard 200’s top 10, tying Taylor Swift’s Fearless (2008-10) for the most frames ever logged in the chart’s top 10 among country albums.

Dangerous single “Sand in My Boots” topped the Country Airplay list dated Feb. 26, becoming Wallen’s fifth No. 1.

MORE ‘LOVE’ Speaking of records, Jason Aldean and Carrie Underwood’s “If I Didn’t Love You,” which led Country Airplay for three weeks starting on the chart dated Oct. 30, ranks in the top 10 for a record-extending 26th week, placing at No. 8 (17.3 million, up 1%).

The song surpassed another duet for the most weeks in the Country Airplay top 10: Chris Young and Kane Brown’s “Famous Friends” (23). Of the 11 songs to spend the most time in the top 10, eight have logged their runs since 2017, including five since 2020.

Concurrently, Aldean’s latest single, “Trouble With a Heartache,” ranks at No. 27 on Country Airplay (5.2 million, up 8%).

On Country Airplay, the song hops 18-14, sparked by its 10% bump to 11.5 million in audience. It also drew 6.9 million U.S. streams (up 19%) and sold 2,300 downloads (up 18%).

Combs last reached the Hot Country Songs top 10 with “Cold as You” (No. 5, November). It became his 13th properly-promoted single to top Country Airplay, padding his record for the longest streak of leaders from the start of an act’s career.

The song follows Bentley’s “Gone,” which reached No. 2 last June. “Beers” is Breland’s first Country Airplay entry; HARDY adds his second top 10 as a recording artist, after (sensing a theme here) “One Beer,” featuring Lauren Alaina and Devin Dawson, became his first No. 1 in December 2020.
