Florida Georgia Line's song "Cruise" spent a record-breaking 24 weeks at number one on the Hot Country Songs chart.

In 2013, Billboard magazine published two main charts ranking the top-performing country music songs in the United States. The Hot Country Songs chart ranked songs based on digital downloads, streaming, and airplay not only from country stations but from stations of all formats, a methodology introduced the previous year.[1] The Country Airplay listing, which had been published for the first time in 2012, was based solely on country radio airplay, a methodology which had previously been used for several decades for Hot Country Songs.[1]

At the start of the year, the number one song on the Hot Country Songs listing was "Cruise" by the duo Florida Georgia Line. After falling from the top spot at the end of January, the song rebounded to the top in April, beginning a run of 19 consecutive weeks at number one. Its final total was 24 weeks at the top of the chart, breaking the record for the most cumulative weeks spent atop one of Billboard's country charts which had stood for nearly 60 years.[2] This revival of the song's fortunes was due to the late spring release of a remix featuring a guest appearance by the rapper Nelly, which proved extremely popular on pop music radio.[3][4][5] Thanks to the incorporation into the chart's methodology of spin data from all radio formats, as opposed to just country stations, this support from top 40 radio allowed "Cruise" to hold the top spot throughout the summer.[4][6] The remix did not prove as popular on country radio, however, and by the late summer the song was in the unusual position of topping the Hot Country Songs chart but receiving so few spins on country stations that it did not appear in the 60-position airplay listing at all.[7]

The dominance of "Cruise" on the Hot Country Songs chart meant that most of the chart-toppers on the Country Airplay chart did not reach the top of the other listing; of the 31 songs which topped the airplay chart during 2013, only five also topped Hot Country Songs, and on only four occasions during the year was the same song at number one on both charts. Four acts who topped the airplay listing during the year achieved the first number-one hits of their careers. In February Randy Houser gained his first number one with "How Country Feels".[8] Pistol Annies, a supergroup composed of female singers Miranda Lambert, Ashley Monroe, and Angaleena Presley, reached number one for the first time in June when they were featured on the song "Boys 'Round Here" by Blake Shelton,[9] Lambert's then-husband.[10] Brett Eldredge was a first-time chart-topper when "Don't Ya" spent two weeks in the top spot at the end of August.[11] Finally, the band Parmalee reached number one for the first time when "Carolina" topped the chart in the issue of Billboard dated December 21.[12] Gary Allan scored his first number one in more than eight years when "Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain)" topped both the Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay charts in February.[13]
