Garth Brooks doesn't have far to go to get to number one. The singer's latest release, "People Loving People," is starting its run in the top 20, debuting at number 19 on the Country Airplay chart.
Billboard.com says that matches Garth's third-highest chart entry. Just 2007's "More Than a Memory" - the only song ever to debut at number one - and 2005's "Good Ride Cowboy," which opened at number 18, have done better. "The Thunder Rolls" also entered the chart at 19 back in 1991.
Garth now has four of the 16 top 20 Country Airplay chart debuts, which is the most of any artist.
"People Loving People" is the lead-off single from Brooks' upcoming album, which is due later this year.
