HARDY’s “Wait in the Truck,” featuring Lainey Wilson, rolls into the top 10 of Billboard’s Country Airplay chart dated Feb. 11. The song pushes from No. 11 to No. 9, up 5% to 19.3 million audience impressions in the week ending Feb. 2, according to Luminate.
HARDY lands his third Country Airplay top 10 as a recording artist, after “Beers on Me,” with Dierks Bentley and BRELAND, led for a week last April and “One Beer,” featuring Lauren Alaina and Devin Dawson, ruled for a week in December 2020. HARDY has co-written 11 No. 1s on the survey, including those two chart-toppers.
“Truck” gives Wilson her fourth consecutive career- opening Country Airplay top 10. Her debut, “Things a Man Oughta Know,” topped the tally for a week in September 2021; “Never Say Never,’’ with Cole Swindell, dominated for two frames last April-May; and her third top 10, “Heart Like a Truck,” rides 10-7 (21 million, up 7%) for a new high on the latest list.
HARDY penned “Truck” with Renee Blair, Hunter Phelps and Jordan Schmidt. “You rarely hear songs like this that bring light to heavy situations that people are really scared to talk about,” says Wilson of the tense murder ballad. “I feel, in my heart, that our job is to sing about the things that people are afraid to talk about. It’s a song that definitely starts a conversation.”
“Wait” is the lead single from HARDY’s LP The Mockingbird & The Crow, which launched at No. 1 on the Top Country Albums chart dated Feb. 4 with 55,000 equivalent album units, marking his first leader and biggest week to-date.
‘Didn’t Do’ Does It
Carly Pearce nets her fourth Country Airplay top 10 as “What He Didn’t Do” rises 12-10 (19.1 million, up 5%). Co-penned by Pearce, the song follows her first three No. 1s: her Ashley McBryde team-up “Never Wanted To Be That Girl,” which led for a week last May; “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” with Lee Brice (one week, June 2020); and “Every Little Thing,” (one, November 2017).
