Thomas Rhett’s “Beer Can’t Fix” Did NOT Break the Billboard Country Airplay Chart Record for Most Consecutive No. 1 Singles

Thomas Rhett’s “Beer Can’t Fix” Did NOT Break the Billboard Country Airplay Chart Record for Most Consecutive No. 1 Singles

Thomas Rhett’s current single, “Beer Can’t Fix,” featuring Jon Pardi, became his 15th No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart this week.

“Beer Can’t Fix” is Thomas Rhett’s ninth consecutive No. 1 single, the longest ACTIVE streak on the Airplay chart, ahead of Luke Combs (7) and Old Dominion (6).

However, contrary to reports from multiple media outlets, TR’s outstanding accomplishment is NOT the all-time chart record for consecutive No. 1 singles.

That honor goes to Blake Shelton, who scored 17 consecutive No. 1 singles on the Airplay chart from “Hillbilly Bone” in 2010 to “Came Here to Forget” in 2016.

Billboard created the Airplay chart in 1990.

And if you really want your mind blown . . . Alabama scored 21 consecutive No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, starting with “Tennessee River” in 1980 and ending with “You’ve Got the Touch” in 1987.

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
