Top 40 Country Songs – January 2016

Subscribe to Taste of Country on

The No. 1 song on the January 2016 Top 40 Country Songs list made a huge jump to get there. In fact, no song has ever catapulted further to claim the top spot. This guy was sitting at No. 32 in December before taking off in January.

Others inside the Top 10 of our monthly Top 40 list include hits from Sam Hunt and Eric Church, and unlikely smashes from LoCash, Chris Stapleton and Jana Kramer. Last month’s top song checks in at No. 4, while new songs from Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and Randy Houser help make up the Top 20.
