What Does “A No. 1 Song” Mean?

If like me, you enjoy learning about the nuts & bolts of the music industry, you might find this interesting!

If you listen to Clear 99 very often (and frankly why wouldn’t you?) you’ve probably heard us introduce a song and call it a No.1….or talk about George Strait’s 58 No. 1’s.

(Earlier this week we talked about Dierks Bentley being No. 1 on iTunes, which isn’t even covered in this discussion.)

This article from “Taste of Country.com” helps to explain what No. 1 means, and how that happens, and who gets paid, and how much they get paid, etc.  I thought it was pretty cool!
