The 2022 “Billboard” Country Lists Are Dominated By Morgan Wallen

“Billboard” put out its annual year-end report on the top country artists, songs, producers, and everything else you can think of.  No surprise here. The standout again this year was Morgan Wallen.

He’s at the top of NINE different lists, three more than a year ago. 

They include Top Country Artist…Top Male Country Artist…top album for “Dangerous: The Double Album” and “Wasted on You” was the Top Hot Country Song as well as being the most-streamed country song in 2022.

Here are a few more artists and songs that topped Billboard’s lists this year:

Top Female Country Artist…Carrie Underwood

Top Duo or Group…Zac Brown Band

Top New Country Artist on a major label…Zach Bryan

Most-heard song on country radio…“Take My Name” by Parmalee

Most digital downloads for an artist…Walker Hayes.  “Fancy Like” was the most-downloaded song of the year (if I never hear that song again in my life…I’ll be fine with it).

Top Country Tour…Kenny Chesney. He filled 1.3 million seats, and his tour grossed over $135 million.
