Highway Don’t Care has officially reached the number one spot on the country airplay charts! This is Taylor’s seventh number one hit on the country airplay charts and the first one since Ours claimed the number one spot back in March of 2012! Congratulations to Taylor, Tim McGraw and Keith Urban!
Tim McGraw and Taylor Swift achieve their 26th and seventh Billboard Country Airplay No. 1s, respectively, as “Highway Don’t Care” winds 2-1. For McGraw, “Highway” follows “One of Those Nights,” which led for three weeks in March, marking his first set of straight two No. 1s since he scored four in a row in 2003-04. “Highway” is Swift’s first Country Airplay chart-topper since “Ours” crowned the chart dated March 31, 2012. And, of course, the coronation places the duo (along with Keith Urban, who adds guitarwork) at No. 1 after Swift arrived with “Tim McGraw” … in the song title field … almost seven years ago (July 1, 2006). Her debut hit reached No. 6 in early 2007.
