After laying back at #2 the past 4 weeks, “Six Strings and Diamond Rings” by Taylor Hicks climbs back up to #1.  This week marks the 4th week at #1 for “Six Strings…” and starts what will likely be another multi-week stay (potentially staying at #1 until its chart run will have to end in a little over a month).

  • #2) “Refuge” by Randy Moore (no change)
  • #3) “Can’t Slow Down” by the Dushane Band (no change)
  • #4) “One Number Away” by Luke Combs (up 5)

*–Vote Score = # of Votes divided by the Probability of Receiving a Vote.  This formula was instituted for the Hot Song beginning with the voting for the 2/22-2/28/15 Chart, but was renamed Power Score for the “Power of the Vote” song starting with the 8/23-8/29/15 Chart.  Eventually, the song name was changed back to the Hot Song and the score was called the Vote Score beginning with the 8/28-9/3/16 Chart.
