Last week, Jimmie Allen’s “Best Shot” was knocked out of the top spot by Kane Brown’s “Lose It” after spending two week’s at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. However this week, “Best Shot” is back on top, making Allen the first artist in 10 years to have a single return to No. 1 after relinquishing its crown. The last artist to accomplish the feat was Jimmy Wayne in 2008 with “Do You Believe in Me Now.”
“Best Shot” is the first single from Jimmie’s debut album, Mercury Lane, and was co-written by Jimmie, Josh London and JP Williams.
Allen also joins Darius Rucker as the only African-American country artists to hit No. 1 with their debut singles. Rucker accomplished the feat back in 2008 with “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It,” which remained at No. 1 for two weeks.
