So, keep on scrolling below to see the hottest songs this month.

1. ‘Til You Can’t by Cody Johnson

Johnson truly knows the power of a good song! This sweet ballad about dedication and the little things that matter the most quickly became a massive hit. And the country star is hoping the song will inspire the younger generation.

2. Doin’ This by Luke Combs

When Combs was asked, “What would you do if you weren’t doin’ this?” He answered the question through a song, showing that making music was always his end goal. This is his ode to his passion for music.

3. Wasted On You by Morgan Wallen

The heartbreak ballad where Wallen reflects on how he can’t get over his old flame impacted the country radio airwaves in a big way. After all, the song’s theme of turning to a bottle of bourbon to lessen the pain is quite relatable.

4. AA by Walker Hayes

The viral country hitmaker is no longer singing about dining out. Instead, he gets more personal in “AA” – singing about the day-to-day life in the south, like insecurities, parental anxieties, and his struggles with sobriety.

5. Trouble With A Heartbreak by Jason Aldean

This catchy track finds Aldean navigating the pain and sorrow after the end of a relationship. In addition to this brand-new track, the country star has also shared the music video for the song, which follows a heartbroken cowboy.

6. Never Say Never by Cole Swindell/Lainey Wilson

In this song, Wilson joins Swindell to sing about a challenging relationship – the kind where you know it’s not good for you, but you can’t help but just go back. It’s undoubtedly something a lot could relate to.

7. Don’t Think Jesus by Morgan Wallen

After months of anticipation, Wallen has officially released his deeply personal new song. And it made a record-breaking debut, ranking atop the chart. This makes Wallen the first artist to score three No.1 debuts on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart.

8. Fancy Like by Walker Hayes

It’s not yet half of the year, but this ode to low-key date nights seems like going to be the Song of the Year! Now, Hayes is riding the wave of his unescapable crossover hit – that took last summer by storm leading to a Grammy nomination.

9. Beers On Me by Dierks Bentley, Breland, and HARDY

Dierks Bentley has enlisted the help of singers Hardy and Breland for a laid-back barroom singalong set to an easygoing tempo. Truly, friends’ generosity can make the week’s troubles melt away.

10. Buy Dirt by Jordan Davis featuring Luke Bryan

When the entire world turned upside down from the global pandemic we never saw coming, Davis slowed down and found joy on the piece of dirt where he lives.

11. Something In The Orange by Zach Bryan

For those listeners who do not know Bryan’s name yet, they will! The Billboard’s No. 1 Emerging Artist is now quickly becoming one of the top acts in the country – thanks to his single about madly falling in love, “Something in the Orange.”

12. If I Was A Cowboy by Miranda Lambert

This is Lambert’s first solo single in two years, and you can tell it’s worth the wait! The song is actually a tribute to all things wild and western.

13. Tomorrow Me by Luke Combs 

The country superstar shows his matured side as he refuses to keep an on-again, off-again relationship burning for one more night. His brain knows letting go is better for his future.

14. Slow Down Summer by Thomas Rhett

Rhett gave us a glimpse of how he has lived, looking back to his days as a youngster and the inescapable goodbye that came at the end of a short but sweet summer romance.

15. Never Wanted To Be That Girl by Carly Pearce and Ashley McBryde

This confessional story song is something we didn’t see coming from these two female country artists. Indeed, they served enough twang when they discovered they were both in a committed relationship with the same man.
