Thanks to Taylor Swift, Little Big Town’s ‘Better Man’ Burns Up the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart
There’s a reason brands like Diet Coke and Keds love Taylor Swift. Because when the “Blank Space” songstress offers her nod of approval, her feverish fandom gets on board. The same is proving to be true for Little Big Town’s latest single “Better Man,” which Swift herself wrote for the group.
On Nov. 1, 2016, the day before Little Big Town won group of the year at the CMA Awards, they revealed that their pal Taylor had indeed penned the track and since it has shot up Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart, rising from 20 to 6. Sales increased a whopping 138%, which is pushing 47,000 downloads.
This is Swift’s 20th song to chart on the Hot Country Songs chart, though she’s been absent since 2013. Her last track to climb the chart was “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” it was at No. 1 for ten weeks.
It seems that, although she’s gone on to conquer the Billboard Hot 100, she’s still able to remind fans where she came from!
