Morgan Wallen & Luke Combs take Country Music to #1 and #2 on Hot 100


If you were in doubt who the two hottest country singers have been over the last few years, look no further than the #1 and #2 spot on this week’s Billboard Hot 100 songs chart.

Morgan Wallen’s “Last Night” logged a 12th week at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, and Luke Combs’ cover of Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car” rose to#2 on the Hot 100. The success of these two songs placed Country Music in the top two spots on the chart simultaneously for the first time in over 42 years.

It’s the first time that Country Music has claimed #1 and #2 on Billboard’s primary chart since March 1981, when Eddie Rabbitt’s “I Love a Rainy Night” and Dolly Parton’s “9 to 5” managed the same crossover-success.
