Keith Urban Earns Milestone 40th Top 10 on Country Airplay Chart With ‘We Were’


Urban first reached the region in 2000.

Keith Urban banks his 40th top 10 on Billboard's Country Airplay chart, as "We Were" bumps 11-10 on the Oct. 12-dated list, up 1% to 22.5 million audience impressions, according to Nielsen Music.

With the song, released on Hit Red/Capitol Nashville, Urban earns his first top 10 since "Coming Home" (featuring Julia Michaels), which hit No. 3 in August 2018. He first reached the region in August 2000 with the No. 4-peaking "Your Everything."

Urban is the seventh artist to total at least 40 top 10s dating to the chart's January 1990 inception, following George Strait (61), Tim McGraw (57), Kenny Chesney (55), Alan Jackson (51), Toby Keith (42) and Brooks & Dunn (41).

As previously reported, Matt Stell scores his first No. 1 on Country Airplay with "Prayed for You" and Justin Bieber makes his first appearance on Billboard's country charts as "10,000 Hours," with Dan + Shay, debuts at No. 20 on Country Airplay and No. 40 on Hot Country Songs.
