Jelly Roll Rocks His Fourth Country Airplay Top 10 With ‘Halfway to Hell’

Jelly Roll adds his fourth top 10 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart as “Halfway to Hell” rides 11-9 on the list dated May 4. The song increased by 11% to 20.3 million audience impressions in the April 19-25 tracking week, according to Luminate.

Jelly Roll co-authored the song with Jessie Jo Dillon, Jesse Frasure and Matt Jenkins. It’s the first track on the country star’s album Whitsitt Chapel, which entered Top Country Albums at No. 2 last June with the largest week – 90,000 equivalent album units in the United States – for an initial entry since the survey transitioned to a consumption-based methodology (from one based on pure sales) in February 2017.

“Halfway to Hell” follows three straight Country Airplay leaders for Jelly Roll: “Save Me,” with Lainey Wilson, which reigned for two frames last December; “Need a Favor” (four weeks, starting in August 2023); and his rookie entry, “Son of a Sinner” (one week, January 2023).

Jelly Roll has an additional song on the May 4 ranking: Dustin Lynch’s “Chevrolet” (Broken Bow), on which he’s featured, pushes 24-22 for a new high (6.6 million, up 19%).

‘Outskirts’ Still In

Sam Hunt’s “Outskirts” dominates Country Airplay for a second week with 31.7 million impressions in the tracking week (down 5%). The song, which he co-authored, becomes the second of his 10 No. 1s to lead for more than one week, after “Body Like a Back Road” ruled for three frames in May 2017. That crossover hit also dominated the streaming-, airplay- and sales-based Hot Country Songs chart for a then-record 34 weeks through October 2017.
