via Wikipedia

"Body Like a Back Road" is a song co-written and recorded by American singer Sam Hunt. It was released to country radio, by MCA Nashville on February 2, 2017 as the first single from his upcoming second studio album. The song is written by Hunt, Zach Crowell, Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne. It was released to American hot adult contemporary radio on April 3, 2017, becoming his second crossover single promoted to a pop music format. The song is Hunt's most successful song to date. It broke two records within a month of one another; in early June 2017, the song broke a 55-year-old-record previously held by Leroy Van Dyke's "Walk On By", with 20 weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart – this made Hunt the only solo country artist with the longest run at the top of the 59-year old Hot Country Songs chart. The song broke records again in late July 2017, becoming the only song in the history of the Hot Country Songs chart to stay at number one for more than 24 weeks, a record previously held since 2012 by Florida Georgia Line's "Cruise". The song has spent a total of 34 weeks on top of the Hot Country Songs chart as of the issue dated October 14, 2017. Additionally, the song peaked at number six on the US Billboard Hot 100, becoming Hunt's highest-charting single, and his first top 10 single overall, on that chart. With this peak, the song became the highest-charting country song on the US Billboard Hot 100 since "Cruise" by Florida Georgia Line, which reached number four in 2013.
