Securing the second place spot is Luke Combs, who raked in 23.58 million views with his sentimental video for “Forever After All.” 

Ryan Hurd and Maren Morris came in third as their “Chasing After You” music video collected 13.86 million views. 

Rounding out the Top 5 are Elvie Shane’s video “My Boy” and Chris Young and Kane Brown’s “Famous Friends” clip.
