Sam Hunt Is Billboard's Top Country Artist of the Year

Sam Hunt has been crowned Billboard's Top Country Artist of the Year.

The country star tops the list on the strength of his hit “Body Like a Back Road,” which has also been named the No. 1 song on Billboard's year-end Hot Country Songs list.

The song spent 34 weeks on Billboard's Hot Country Songs Chart, which takes into account sales, streaming and airplay.

Chris Stapleton, whose album From A Room won the CMA’s Album of the Year, came in second. Rounding out the Top 5 are Thomas Rhett, Florida Georgia Line and Luke Combs.
