Carly Pearce, Chris Stapleton & Cody Johnson Add Country Airplay Top 10s, Morgan Wallen Takes Top Two

Carly Pearce’s “We Don’t Fight Anymore,” featuring Chris Stapleton, hits the top 10 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart (dated July 6), hopping 14-9. The song drew 18.6 million audience impressions, up 29%, June 21-27, according to Luminate.

Pearce earns her fifth Country Airplay top 10 with the lead single from her album Hummingbird. The song by the Taylor Mill, Ky., native, which she co-penned, follows “What He Didn’t Do,” which hit No. 2 in April 2023, and “Never Wanted To Be That Girl” (with Ashley McBryde), which led in May 2022, becoming her third leader.

Stapleton scores his seventh Country Airplay top 10 and first since “White Horse” hit No. 2 in February.

Pay ‘Dirt’

Cody Johnson lands his fourth Country Airplay top 10 as “Dirt Cheap” climbs 11-10 (18.4 million, up 4%). It’s the sophomore single from his LP Leather, which arrived on Top Country Albums at its No. 5 peak last November, becoming his fifth top 10.

The song marks Johnson’ second Country Airplay top 10 of 2024. “The Painter” led for a week in March, becoming his second No. 1, after “‘Til You Can’t” ruled for its first of two frames in March 2022.

Wallen 1&2

For a second week, Post Malone’s “I Had Some Help,” featuring Morgan Wallen, leads Country Airplay (32.4 million, up 3%). Of the 15 No. 1s in 2024, it’s just the third to reign for multiple weeks; 2023 produced 19 leaders, with 12 commanding for multiple weeks.

Meanwhile, for just the third time in the list’s 34-year history, an act ranks at Nos. 1 and 2 concurrently as Wallen’s “Cowgirls,” featuring ERNEST, pushes 3-2 (29.2 million, up 11%).

The last time that an artist held the chart’s top two spots was last September when Luke Combs’ “Love You Anyway” topped the tally and “Fast Car” was at No. 2. The only other act that has locked up the two ranks simultaneously: For two weeks in May-June 2014, Luke Bryan’s “Play It Again” was No. 1 and Florida Georgia Line’s “This Is How We Roll,” featuring Bryan, placed at its No. 2 peak.
