This article highlights significant milestones and achievements based upon Billboard magazine's Hot Country Songs (and its titled predecessors) chart, and accomplishments on the Hot Country Albums chart.

This list spans from the issue dated January 8, 1944 to the present. Billboard magazine began tracking the popularity of country music songs at that time, and it is widely considered to be the standard music popularity chart in the United States.

From 1944-1948, Billboard used just one chart to track songs' popularity - "Most Played Juke Box Folk Records." There was no standard chart length; a given week had anywhere from two to eight positions. A "Best Sellers" chart (first titled "Best Seling Retail Folk Records") was added with the May 15, 1948 issue, while a "Jockeys" (first known as "Country & Western Records Most Played by Folk Disk Jockeys") first appeared on December 10, 1949. From 1949-1957, there were three charts that measured the popularity of country music songs; the Jukebox chart was dropped after the June 17, 1957 chart, while the final Best Sellers and Jockeys charts ended with the October 13, 1958 issue.

Starting October 20, 1958, there was one all-encompassing chart, combining both retail sales and radio airplay. First known as "Hot C&W Sides," the chart name changed to "Hot Country Singles" on November 3, 1962; "Hot Country Singles & Tracks" on January 20, 1990; and "Hot Country Songs" on April 30, 2005. The chart length varied through the years: 30 (1958-1964), 50 (1964-1966), 75 (1966-1973), 100 (1973-1990), 75 (1990-2000) and 60 (since January 6, 2001).[1]

Most No. 1 hits in a calendar yearEdit

  • 5 — tie between two artists:
    • Eddy Arnold, 1948 with "Anytime," "Boquet of Roses," "Texarkana Baby," "Just a Little Lovin' (Will Go a Long, Long Way)" and "A Heart Full of Love (For a Handful of Kisses)."
    • Charlie Rich, 1974 with "There Won't Be Anymore," "A Very Special Love Song," "I Don't See Me in Your Eyes Anymore," "I Love My Friend" and "She Called Me Baby."

Note: Eddy Arnold's feat does not count "I'll Hold You in My Heart (Til I Can Hold You In My Arms)," which began its 21-week run at No. 1 in November 1947 and remained there well into 1948.

Most consecutive No. 1 hitsEdit

Streak Artist First No. 1 and year Last No. 1 and year Streak-breaking song
21 Alabama "Tennessee River"
(August 1980)
"'You've Got' The Touch"
(April 1987)
"Tar Top"
(No. 7 in November 1987)
16 Earl Thomas Conley "Your Love's on the Line"
(August 1983)
"Love Out Loud"

"Only Love Can Break a Heart"
(No. 2 in March 1972)
Note: Billboard and statistician Joel Whitburn disregard all non-No. 1 duets and Christmas releases in determining No. 1 streaks. If Christmas songs and duets were to be included in No. 1 streaks, however, Sonny James would continue to hold the standard with 16; Alabama's streak would be eight and 13 (with the 1982 Christmas song "Christmas in Dixie" splitting the pair of streaks) and Conley's streak split into nine and seven (broken up by the 1986 duet "Too Many Times" with Anita Pointer).

The chartsEdit

Most and fewest No. 1s in a given yearEdit

  • Most: (tie) 1985 and 1986, when 51 different No. 1 songs peaked in each year.*
  • Least: 1960, when just four different songs (five, if "El Paso" by Marty Robbins is counted) topped the chart. Each of the new No. 1 songs that year spent 10 or more weeks atop the chart. [6]
* Note: In 1985 and 1986, the No. 1 hit for the last week of December of each year spent two weeks in that position, in part due to the second week being a "frozen" week. This was at a time when Billboard "froze" the charts during the final week of the year due to its publication of the year-end issue. In addition, one song in 1985 — Ronnie Milsap's "Lost in the Fifties Tonight (In the Still of the Night)" — spent two weeks at No. 1 that October.[7]
