Jimmie Allen Becomes First Country Artist Since 2008 to Return to Top Spot on Airplay Chart

After spending two week’s at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart (Nov. 24 and Dec. 1), Jimmie Allen’s “Best Shot” was bested by Kane Brown’s “Lose It” last week (Dec. 8).

This week, “Best Shot” is back on top, making Jimmie the first artist in 10 years to have a single return to No. 1 after relinquishing its crown. The last artist to accomplish the feat was Jimmy Wayne in 2008 with “Do You Believe in Me Now.”

Written by Jimmie, Josh London and JP Williams, “Best Shot” is the first single from Jimmie’s debut album, Mercury Lane.

“In writing this song, we just wanted to be honest with ourselves and write something that others can empathize with,” says Jimmie.

Jimmie joined Darius Rucker as the only African-American country artists to hit No. 1 with their debut singles. Darius, who became a household name in the early 1990s as the frontman of Hootie & the Blowfish, accomplished the feat in 2008 with “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It,” which remained No. 1 for two weeks.
