The Top 40 country playlist for July 2022 features no fewer than six brand-new songs from country hitmakers, newcomers and welcome-backers. There's a new No. 1 this month as Morgan Wallen steps back from the top.

Bailey Zimmerman (two songs) is making his artist debut on the monthly Top 40, while Riley Green returns with a great duet with Thomas Rhett. Sam Hunt has a new song to share with fans eager to hear it on repeat, and Cole Swindell may have his biggest hit ever. It's certainly his highest debut on this long-running Top 40 list.

While there are several seasoned hitmakers on the country airplay Top 40, there aren't any who had a hit a decade ago on our list, which factors in sales, streaming and critical acclaim. Luke Combs pins his new single at No. 2, one notch below Kane Brown's most pure country offering ever. "I Love Country Music" is a true celebration of the genre, and fans can't get enough of it.

The list of Top 40 country songs of July 2022 is compiled from Billboard chart data, streaming data, sales figures, staff opinion and reader feedback.
