Zac Brown Band and Darius Rucker Sit on Top of the Country Charts


Last week, Zac Brown Band’s “Homegrown” earned the #1 spot on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart but came up short on Mediabase’s country singles chart. Mediabase’s top position instead went to Darius Rucker’s “Homegrown Honey.”

“Homegrown” was not to be denied the peak Mediabase spot for a second consecutive week. The song rises one place to claim the #1 spot on this week’s edition of the Mediabase country radio chart.

In seizing the throne, “Homegrown” holds off Sam Hunt’s advancing “Take Your Time.” That song, which is a multi-week leader on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart, earns the #2 position on this week’s Mediabase country radio chart .

Also in this week’s top five are  #3 -Chris Young’s “Lonely Eyes”, #4 – Lee Brice’s “Drinking Class” and Dierks Bentley’s “Say You Do” sits at #5.
