On ‘Fire’: Florida Georgia Line Leads Country Airplay Chart

Florida Georgia Line collects its seventh No. 1 on Billboard's Country Airplay chart (dated June 20), as "Sippin' on Fire" rises 2-1.

Florida Georgia Line collects its seventh No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart (dated June 20), as “Sippin’ on Fire” rises 2-1 in its 19th week with a 6 percent gain to 46.3 million audience impressions, according to Nielsen Music. The track is the third single, and third No. 1, from the duo’s sophomore studio album, Anything Goes. “Dirt” (Oct. 25, 2014) and “Sun Daze” (Feb. 28) previously reigned.

With seven Country Airplay No. 1s, beginning with its debut hit “Cruise,” which began a three-week rule on the Dec. 15, 2012, chart, Florida Georgia Line trails only Brooks & Dunn for the most leaders (20) among duos in the chart’s 25-year history. Montgomery Gentry and Sugarland follow with five each.


Appropriately, “Smoke” led to “Fire” on Country Airplay: “Fire” replaces A Thousand Horses’ debut No. 1 “Smoke” (1-7), giving Republic Nashville back-to-back toppers. The label had last succeeded itself at the summit when Eli Young Band’s “Drunk Last Night” gave way to Florida Georgia Line’s “Stay” on the Jan. 4, 2014 chart.

Florida Georgia Line is releasing the Anything Goes title track as its new single. The twosome will perform on the CMT Music Awards, airing tomorrow (June 10) on the network, and hit the stage at LP Field in Nashville during the CMA Music Festival the following night.
