The next highest ranking country song on the radio was Little Big Town's "Pontoon," at #20, with Josh Turner's "Time Is Love," Hunter Hayes's "Wanted," and Blake Shelton's "Over" clustered around the mid-20s. Still, country music had some big movers this week, among them Dustin Lynch, Jason Aldean, and Easton Corbin.
