The Country Airplay started in 1990 and till now, Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett’s “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” (2003) and Lonestar’s pop crossover hit “Amazed” (1999) ruled the game!

The hit was written with Big Loud label mate ERNEST, as well as Ashley Gorley, Keith Smith and Charlie Handsome, with Joey Moi producing. Clearly it was a match made in country music heaven as "You Proof" is the superstar's seventh number 1 hit.


But it doesn't stop there, Billboard also reported Wallen’s “Thought You Should Know,” also a non-album single, pushes 11-10 on Country Airplay (16.4 million, up 14%). Another new Wallen track, “One Thing at a Time,” enters Country Airplay at No. 59 (576,000, up 56%). The song launched on the multi-metric Hot Country Songs chart dated Dec. 17 at No. 2; with “You Proof” at No. 1 and Wallen’s “Wasted on You” at No. 3 that week, he became the first act ever to full take over the top three in a single week!


Wallen's 2023 looks bright as his "One Thing at a Time" sampler was just released as well as a highly anticipated world tour! The Wallen method is taking over and we are excited to see what next year brings!
