Chris Janson Tops Country Airplay Chart With ‘Done,’ His ‘Favorite Song’ He’s Ever Written

Chris Janson scores his second No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart, as “Done” ascends 3-1 on the survey dated Aug. 8.

The song increased by 9% to 31.7 million audience impressions in the week ending Aug. 2, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

Janson wrote “Done” — which was inspired by his wife, Kelly Lynn — with Mitch Oglesby, Jamie Paulin and Matt Roy.

“I’m extremely grateful for this No. 1 song,” Janson tells Billboard. “What a huge blessing it’s been. All my friends at country radio have always had my back, and that is something for which I am very thankful. ‘Done’ is my favorite song I’ve ever written because it’s also a true story. Every single part of the song is true, from the four-plank to the house on the hill. It’s all real.

“I’m looking forward to getting back into touring when it’s safe to do so and playing this song for my amazing fans,” Janson adds. “A big congratulations also to my co-writers on achieving their first No. 1 song.”

“Done” is the sophomore single from Janson’s 2019 album Real Friends, after lead release “Good Vibes” became his first Country Airplay No. 1 last October. Janson, who joined the Grand Ole Opry in 2018, first charted in 2010 and scored his first of five top 10s with “Buy Me a Boat,” which reached No. 3 in September 2015.

‘AGAIN’ IN TOP 10 Kane Brown achieves his sixth Country Airplay top 10 as “Cool Again.” His previous five proper singles all hit No. 1.

‘BED’ TIME Released Friday, July 31, Dan + Shay’s new single “I Should Probably Go to Bed” arrives at No. 21 on Country Airplay with 9.8 million audience impressions in its first three days, helped by hourly plays on participating iHeartMedia stations in its first day.

The duo earns its second-highest Country Airplay start, after its Justin Bieber collaboration “10,000 Hours” opened at No. 20 last October before leading for two weeks in January and February. It also hit the top 10 on Pop Songs, Adult Pop Songs and Adult Contemporary.

“Bed” is currently being promoted to country radio and will go to pop and adult pop formats the week of Aug. 17.
