Newcomer Kip Moore becomes the fourth artist this year to reach No. 1 for the first time on Country Songs, as "Somethin' 'Bout a Truck" rises 3-1 in its 33rd chart week. Meanwhile, new songs by Kenny Chesney and a new album by Willie Nelson make impressive debuts.
Moore's slow climb is not the slowest of the four first-time chart-toppers during the first five months of 2012. David Nail's "Let It Rain" capped the Jan. 21 chart in its 49th week. The other two songs are Eric Church's "Drink in My Hand, which reigned in its 23rd chart week (Jan. 28), and Lee Brice's "A Woman Like You," which reached the summit in 27 weeks (April 21).
No artist has reached No. 1 with their first charted title since Brantley Gilbert's "Country Must Be Country Wide" led the Dec. 3, 2011 chart. Moore's first chart appearance was "Mary Was the Marrying Kind," which peaked at No. 45 last summer.
