Sam Hunt‘s massive hit “Body Like A Back Road” has been ruling the airwaves for weeks now. So many weeks, in fact, that it’s actually broken a record a Billboard record!
The Boot has reported that as of this week, the song has been No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for 20 weeks! This gives Hunt the longest run at No. 1 as a solo artist for this chart.
The record was previously held by Leroy Van Dyke’s hit “Walk on By,” which dominated the chart for 19 weeks in the early 60s.
The only thing stopping “Body Like A Back Road” from taking the all-time chart record is Florida Georgia Line‘s “Cruise,” which spent 24 weeks at the top.
Congratulations Sam! You earned it!
