Maddie & Tae achieved their first number one when they topped the Country Airplay chart with "Girl in a Country Song", a response to the prevalent bro-country style.

In 2014, 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 in 2012.[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] In 2014, 13 different songs topped the Hot Country Songs chart and 35 different songs topped Country Airplay in 52 issues of the magazine.

Jason Aldean had the longest unbroken run at number one on the Hot Country Songs, spending 14 consecutive weeks in the top spot with "Burnin' It Down". Luke Bryan spent the most total weeks at number one during the year, however. His songs "Drink a Beer" and "Play It Again" totaled 14 weeks atop the chart and he spent a further six weeks in the top spot as a featured vocalist on Florida Georgia Line's chart-topper "This Is How We Roll" for a total of 20 weeks at number one. Bryan and Florida Georgia Line were the acts with the most number ones during 2014, as each act had two chart-toppers in addition to their collaboration on "This Is How We Roll". No other act had more than one number one during the year. Bryan also spent the most weeks at number one on the Country Airplay listing, but with a much smaller total of seven weeks. This figure included a run of four consecutive weeks with "Play It Again", which tied with Florida Georgia Line's "Stay" for the longest unbroken run at the top of the radio-based chart during 2014. Bryan and Florida Georgia Line were among a number of acts with two number ones on that chart, including Aldean, Frankie Ballard and Dierks Bentley. Blake Shelton, however, had the highest number of chart-toppers on the airplay listing, reaching the top spot with "Doin' What She Likes", "Neon Light" and "My Eyes".

Several acts gained their first number ones during 2014, including Sam Hunt,[2] whose "Leave the Night On" topped both charts in the same week in November. Singer Cole Swindell reached the top of the Hot Country Songs listing with his debut single, "Chillin' It".[3] Frankie Ballard achieved his first career number one when he reached the peak position on Country Airplay with "Helluva Life",[4] and went on to gain his second number one on the same chart later in the year with "Sunshine & Whiskey". Former contestant on TV's The Voice Gwen Sebastian was a first-time chart-topper when she was featured on the song "My Eyes" by Blake Shelton, who had coached her on the show.[5][6] "Where It's At" gave Dustin Lynch his first appearance at number one.[7] Finally, teenaged female duo Maddie & Tae reached number one for the first time with "Girl in a Country Song",[8] a retort to the bro-country sub-genre associated with acts such as Florida Georgia Line and Jason Aldean, and in particular the depiction of women in the style's lyrics.[9]
