Taylor Swift resurfaces at country radio as Darlinghurst takes the lead

has returned to the country radio charts as a lead artist for the first time in more than five years.

New single ‘Lover’ debuts at #22 on the latest , courtesy of airtime on KIX Country and Triple M Country.

Swift’s last song to make an appearance on the chart was ‘Love Story’ back in September 2014. The track had a near record-breaking 33 weeks at the summit.

She did, however, feature on Sugarland’s #2 country airplay hit ‘Babe’ in 2018.

There’s even more radio news for Taylor this week as ‘Lover’ becomes her 20th Top 10 single on the all-genre TMN Hot 100.

‘Lover’ (#10) joins ‘You Need To Calm Down’ (#8) in the bracket after debuting on the Hot 100 four weeks ago.

Back on Aussie country radio, Melbourne four-piece record their first country airplay #1 with ‘Sorry Won’t Get You Back’.

The Helium Records release is the tenth single to top the chart in 2019 and the fourth by an Aussie artist after Morgan Evans, Amber Lawrence and Lee Kernaghan.

Airplay on CMC, KIX, Triple M Country, Hot Country, ABC Country and iHeartCountry boosted the song ahead of commercial crossover hit ‘One Thing Right’ by Marshmello & Kane Brown.
