Trisha Yearwood scores her best career debut on Billboard‘s Country Airplay chart, as “Every Girl in This Town” bounds onto the tally (dated June 15) at No. 21 with 8.5 million audience impressions, according to Nielsen Music.
The song was released on June 6, and was aided by hourly plays on participating iHeartMedia radio stations.
“Town” marks the highest Country Airplay start for a solo woman in 2019, surpassing Maren Morris‘ “Girl” (No. 28, Jan. 26). “Town” makes the highest bow by a female artist since Carrie Underwood’s “Cry Pretty” (No. 20 in April 2018).
Yearwood, who collects her 50th Country Airplay entry, a history that encompasses 19 top 10s, including five No. 1s, tops her former highest start, set by her 2006 duet with Garth Brooks, “Love Will Always Win” (No. 36). On her own, she previously began at a No. 45 best with “Wrong Side of Memphis” in October 1992.
Plus, Sheryl Crow‘s “Prove You Wrong,” featuring Stevie Nicks and Morris, enters Country Airplay at No. 33 (5.2 million in radio reach). Crow collects her 11th appearance and highest start, while Nicks makes her first appearance. Nicks boasts one entry on Hot Country Songs: “After the Glitter Fades” reached No. 70 (and No. 32 on the Billboard Hot 100) in 1982.
