It’s a golden week for Tim, whose “Southern Girl” jumps 12-9 to become his 50th top 10 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart.

Since McGraw’s first top week in the Nielsen BDS-based chart’s top 10 almost 20 years ago (March 26, 1994), he’s taken the most songs into the upper tier, besting runner-up George Strait (47), Kenny Chesney (45), Toby Keith (39) and Alan Jackson (38).

With more than half of his top 10s (26) climbing all the way to No. 1, McGraw is ted with Jackson and Strait for the most leaders in the chart’s entire 23-year archives.
