Thomas Rhett’s “Beer Can’t Fix” Did NOT Break the Billboard Country Airplay Chart Record for Most Consecutive No. 1 Singles

Thomas Rhett’s “Beer Can’t Fix” Did NOT Break the Billboard Country Airplay Chart Record for Most Consecutive No. 1 Singles

Thomas Rhett’s current single, “Beer Can’t Fix,” featuring Jon Pardi, became his 15th No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart this week.

“Beer Can’t Fix” is Thomas Rhett’s ninth consecutive No. 1 single, the longest ACTIVE streak on the Airplay chart, ahead of Luke Combs (7) and Old Dominion (6).

However, contrary to reports from multiple media outlets, TR’s outstanding accomplishment is NOT the all-time chart record for consecutive No. 1 singles.

That honor goes to Blake Shelton, who scored 17 consecutive No. 1 singles on the Airplay chart from “Hillbilly Bone” in 2010 to “Came Here to Forget” in 2016.

Billboard created the Airplay chart in 1990.

And if you really want your mind blown . . . Alabama scored 21 consecutive No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, starting with “Tennessee River” in 1980 and ending with “You’ve Got the Touch” in 1987.
