This is a HUGE week for Sam Hunt! Sam Hunt’s “Body Like a Back Road” made history this week by overtaking Florida Georgia Line’s “Cruise” as the song that has spent the most weeks atop Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. That record has been held by FGL for nearly 5 years and according to the Associated Press, Hunt’s single hit 25 consecutive weeks at the top of the chart on Monday. In doing so, the track edged out “Cruise”–which reigned for 24 weeks in 2012 and 2013. “Body Like a Back Road,” which has already been certified multiplatinum, also crossed over to the pop charts and jumped into the top 10 of the Hot 100 all-genre chart.
