UK Country Music show presented by CMA member Ben Atkinson and broadcast on stations around the world since 2008. We feature the best in country, roots, americana and bluegrass, plus news from Nashville and Billboard charts.

Listen To The Show

Billboard Country Airplay Chart

The Billboard Country Airplay chart counts down the top songs on US Radio each week. The chart is slightly different from the Billboard Country chart which counts down the top sales and streams of country music in the US. In order to build a connection with our friends and fellow stations over in the US, we’ve decided that on Ben’s Country Music Show we will bring you the Billboard Country Airplay chart countdown each week.

In the second hour of the show, Ben brings you the very latest Billboard Country Airplay Chart. He counts down the Top 10. Below you can find the latest chart and check where your favourite artist charted.

Ben also counts down the Billboard Country albums chart, featuring the Top 5 albums on that chart each week. You can find full details of the Billboard Country Albums chart, right here on our website.

Recent Billboard airplay chart history

In recent history on both the Billboard Airplay and Album charts, Chris Stapleton and Luke Combs have made history. Both their debut and sophomore albums and singles from those records, have stayed in the charts for weeks at a time. Female artists have also come to the fore of late with Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris and Kelsea Ballerini singles climbing to the top of the charts.

Luke Combs' Album This One's For You cover. Chris Stapleton's album cover for Traveller.

How the Billboard airplay charts feed into awards season

A lot of the time, you will find the Billboard Country Charts in the US impact on the annual awards season. This includes the CMA, ACM and CMT awards. It is especially true in the album, single and song categories. We’ll also give you full details on each number one song and how it has impacted on the artist’s career.

Make sure you tune in to the show each week to hear the number one single on US Radio that week. It will be played in full in the last half hour of  Ben’s Country Music Show.
