– Sam Hunt once again is partying at the top of the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart as "House Party" remains first again. Luke Bryan also stayed first - on the overall Top 200, and, of course, the Top Country Albums chart - with "Kill the Lights."
Thomas Rhett was second on the Songs chart with "Crash And Burn" followed by Luke Bryan's "Kick the Dust Up" in third, Chris Janson's "Buy Me A Boat" in fourth and Keith Urban's "John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16" in fifth.
Brett Eldredge broke into the top 10 with "Lose My Mind" in ninth, up 3. Kenny Chesney went from 16 to 12 with "Save It For a Rainy Day." Old Dominion stood at 17, up 3, with "Break Up With Him." Brothers Osborne rounded out the top 25 with "Stay a Little Longer," up 2.
On the Albums chart, "Elvis Forever" debuted in second. Hunt was third with "Montevallo," Zac Brown Band fourth with "Jekyll + Hyde" and Pat Green debuting in fifth with "Home." There was little change in the rest of the chart.
On the Bluegrass Albums chart, Dailey & Vincent stayed first with "Alive! In Concert." Lizzy Long debuted in second with "Blueberry Pie." The SteelDrivers held third with "The Muscle Shoals Recordings." Punch Brothers stayed fourth with "The Phosphorescent Blues." Bella Fleck and Abigail Washburn closed out the top five with their self-titled debut.
On the overall top 200, Hunt was 10th, Presley 11th, Zac Brown Band 23rd and Eric Church's "The Outsiders" 29th. The country and Top 200 chart use different criteria.
