After topping Billboard's Country Airplay chart this week, "10,000 Hours" becomes the sixth song in the history of the charts to command all of Billboard's four country songs charts. With "10,000 Hours" claiming the top position of the Country Airplay chart, the song also commands Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart, Country Streaming Songs chart and Country Digital Song Sales chart.
