Old Dominion have another number-one single to add to their list. "Hotel Key" hit the top of the Mediabase Country Airplay chart this week. This is their 5th number one song.

Carrie Underwood‘s sixth album, Cry Pretty, is officially the biggest female album debut of the year so far. After selling well over 265,000 albums thus far, Cry Pretty unseated Cardi B’s Invasion of Privacy as the biggest debut from a female artist in any genre this year. With Cry Pretty debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, Carrie became the first woman in history to land four country albums at the top of that chart.
