‘Body Like A Back Road’ by Sam Hunt is certainly the sing-a-long song of the summer and as of this week, it’s been sitting in the #1 spot on the Hot Country Songs chart for 25 weeks. This is not just a record for Hunt, but the whole country music community.
Musicians are typically thrilled when their song goes #1, but when it’s able to hold that spot on the charts it really becomes a career highlight. ‘Body Like A Back Road’ has also topped the Country Streaming Songs and Country Digital Song Sales charts for 25 weeks.
Flordia Georgia Line previously held the record with their 2012 hit ‘Cruise’, which spent 24 weeks in the #1 spot.
Hunt brought his 15 In A 30 Tour to Jersey Country earlier this summer. He’s has taken a well-deserved break but will resume that tour with Maren Morris and Chris Janson later this month with a string of sold out shows.
