It's been a long time since this country superstar has had the No. 1 song on a Taste of Country Top 40 Songs list. Sure, he took some time off, but even prior to that, this man's last few releases failed to grab the coveted top spot. The streak of futility ends in September. Any idea whose song is No. 1 in September?

Florida Georgia Line and Lady Antebellum come close, while newcomer Sam Hunt makes a big leap with his debut single 'Leave the Night On.' Blake Shelton has this month's highest debut -- 'Neon Light' checks in at No. 9 after just being released weeks ago. You'll also find new songs from Lee Brice and Jake Owen, two men who know a thing or two about being No. 1.

The list of the Top 40 Country Songs for September 2014 is compiled from Billboard chart data and sales figures, in addition to staff opinion and reader feedback.
