Luke Bryan & Karen Fairchild’s “Home Alone Tonight” Stays at #1

Luke Bryan & Karen Fairchild’s “Home Alone Tonight” rules Mediabase’s country chart for a second week. Kelsea Ballerini’s “Dibs” enters the Top 5.

Last week, Luke Bryan’s “Home Alone Tonight (featuring Karen Fairchild)” edged Sam Hunt’s “Break Up In A Small Town” to claim #1 on the Mediabase country radio singles chart.

This week, thanks to gains in airplay and audience impressions, “Home Alone Tonight” retains the top spot.

“Home Alone Tonight” is the third straight number one from Luke Bryan’s “Kill The Lights” — and second straight multi-week number one.  The leader in chart points, “Home Alone Tonight” also ranks as the most-played and most-heard country song for the January 31-February 6 tracking week.

Number two last week, Hunt’s song falls to #3 on this week’s chart. Granger Smith’s “Backroad Song,” which was #3 last week, ascends to the runner-up spot this week.

Making its first Top 5 appearance, Kelsea Ballerini’s “Dibs” rises two places to #4 on this week’s Mediabase chart. Thomas Rhett’s former multi-week #1 “Die A Happy Man” slips two places to #5.

He has twice been named Entertainer of the Year by both the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association. His fifth studio album, Kill The Lights, debuted at No. 1 on both the Billboard Top 200 (his third to do so) and Top Country Albums charts and closed 2015 with the best-selling country album of the year and the 10th biggest selling album on the all-genre Billboard Top 200 Year-End list. In Luke’s stellar 2015 year, he had three albums on the Top 15 Year-End Country Albums list- Kill the Lights (#1), Spring Break…Checkin’ Out (#10) and Crash My Party (#15), was the most streamed artist of 2015 and placed six songs in the Year-End Top Country Streaming Tracks list.
