Florida Georgia Line’s “H.O.L.Y” (HOLY) maintains an enormous lead in sales and streaming, and reenters this week'sRate the Music (RTM) Country Top 15. Nevertheless, HOLY is ousted from the Number One on the Nielsen/Broadcast Data Systems (BDS) Country Airplay Chart (CAC) after just one week by Eric Church’s “Record Year” (Year).

As a consolation, HOLY does earn its 13th week (three months) at Number One (and by a large margin) on Billboard’s (BB) Hot Country Songs Chart, which combines sales, streaming, and counts crossover airplay.

HOLY continues to receive slowly increasing amounts of airplay from Adult Contemporary (AC) and Hot AC.

Comparing this week's and last week's audience totals

Church’s Year gains 3.184 million impressions over the previous week to finish the week with an audience of 46.138 million, as the song jumps 3-1 on the CAC. Meanwhile,HOLY falls 1-3, losing 4.673 million impressions to finish the week with an audience of 42.793 million.

Year does indeed lead HOLY on the RTM Country Top 15, number four to number 14, but the actual score difference (out of five possible points) is 3.84 to 3.73 respectively, or a difference of only 0.11.

Still, HOLY ranks on this week’s BB Hot 100 at number 19, while Year places at 44.

Chris Lane’s ‘Fix’ rises 4-2 on CAC

Perhaps even more surprisingly, Chris Lane’s latest single “Fix” jumps 4-2, finishing the week with an audience of 44.200 million (+1.780). However, Fix does not place anywhere on this week's RTM CountryTop 15(low call out scores). Also,due to weak sales and streaming totals,Lane ranks a mediocre65 on the Hot 100(46 positions underHOLY).

HOLY clearly outranks Fix in every major metric. Nonetheless, Country Radioalso moves Lane, along withChurch,ahead of FGL on this week’s CAC. Also, with a longer chart history,ChurchandFGLare clearly bigger Celebrities inCountry Musicthan Lane.
