“Body Like a Back Road” is on a highway of history-making!

Sam Hunt’s debut single from his forthcoming sophomore album has officially broken the record for the most weeks atop the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.

With 25 consecutive weeks at No. 1, “Body” bests previous record-holder Florida Georgia Line, whose “Cruise” spent a 24-week reign at the top of the 59-year-old chart back in 2012 and 2013.

But that’s not the only record this record is setting.

With over 261M streams, the now RIAA-certified Triple Platinum track has set and broken 14 country streaming records, including becoming the fastest song to cross 100M and 200M streams. Not only is “Body Like a Back Road” the No. 1 most streamed country song, the banger is also the No. 1 most downloaded country song and the No. 3 most downloaded all-genre song of 2017.

As Sam prepares to release more new music, the superstar will continue his 15 In A 30 Tour with upcoming stops in San Diego, San Jose, Sacramento and two nights in Los Angeles.
