Kane Brown’s “What Ifs” Dethrones Sam Hunt’s “Body Like a Back Road” After a Record 34 Weeks Atop Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Chart

After a record 34 weeks atop Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart, Sam Hunt’s “Body Like a Back Road” has been dethroned by Kane Brown’s “What Ifs,” featuring Lauren Alaina.

Sam’s “Body Like a Back Road” had reigned supreme for 34 straight weeks atop the chart, which shattered the 24-week record set by Florida Georgia Line’s “Cruise” in 2013.

“I wrote ‘Body Like a Back Road’ with my producer Zach Crowell, Josh Osborne and Shane McAnally,” said Sam to Nash Country Daily. “I connect music to the emotions that come from relationships, so most of the songs that I write are inspired by those circumstances, emotions, feelings, all that kind of stuff. ‘Body Like a Back Road’ is a lighthearted song that was a lot of fun to write. It sort of swings, and hopefully it’s easy to listen to and will put a smile on some folks’ faces.”
