Joe nabs his fifth career leader and completes his first set of two straight No. 1s on Billboard's Nielsen BDS-based Country Airplay chart, as "Yeah" vaults 5-1. The new leader follows "Sunny and 75," which capped the Dec. 14, 2013 list. Nichols previously led with "Gimmie That Girl" (2010), "Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off" (2005) and "Brokenheartsville" (2003).
Joe's 5-1 jump with "Yeah" marks the biggest chart-topping leap in almost a year: Randy Houser's "Runnin' Outta Moonlight" bounded 5-1 on the Aug. 10, 2013 chart. No song has made a greater positional climb to No. 1 since Rascal Flatts' "Here Comes Goodbye" rocketed 6-1 (April 25, 2009).
