Dan + Shay, Nate Smith Add New Top 10s on Country Airplay Chart

Dan + Shay, the duo of Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney, bank their 11th top 10 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart as “Save Me the Trouble” lifts to No. 8 on the list dated Nov. 25.

During the Nov. 10-16 tracking week, the single increased by 6% to 19.2 million impressions, according to Luminate.

With the song — which Smyers and Mooney wrote with Ashley Gorley, Jordan Minton and Jordan Reynolds — the twosome scores its first Country Airplay top 10 since “You,” which hit No. 3 in June. The act logged its first top 10 – and first of eight No. 1s – with “Nothin’ Like You,” which led for one week in December 2015. The pair most recently reigned with “Glad You Exist” for a week in August 2021.

He’s ‘On Fire’

Singer-songwriter Nate Smith achieves his second Country Airplay top 10 in as many appearances as “World on Fire” climbs to No. 9. It gained by 10% to 19 million impressions Nov. 10-16.

Smith, from Paradise, Calif., co-authored the song with Ashley Gorley, Taylor Phillips and Lindsay Rimes. It follows his first Country Airplay entry, “Whiskey on You,” which dominated for two weeks in February.

Smith scored early success on social media prior to signing to Sony Music Nashville’s Arista roster in November 2021. He has built up a following of 1.6 million TikTok followers.

High Five

Morgan Wallen’s “Thinkin’ Bout Me” claims the Country Airplay summit for a fifth consecutive and total week (32.1 million, down 7%). It becomes Wallen’s third of 10 No. 1s to lead for at least five frames, along with “You Proof” (a record 10 weeks at No. 1, beginning in October 2022) “Last Night” (nine, starting in May).
