Billboard recently released the year-end Hot Country Songs Chart, recapping the biggest country songs of 2020.

Gabby Barrett sits at the top of the list with her breakout hit “I Hope.” It should come as no surprise as the former American Idol finalist dominated the airwaves in 2020 with the revengeful anthem.

Also included in the mix is Maren Morris, who follows with her song “The Bones,” as well as Dan + Shay in the No.3 slot with “10,000 Hours,” their collaboration with Justin Bieber.

Rounding out the Top 5 are Morgan Wallen’s “Chasin’ You” and Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani’s chart-topping duet, “Nobody But You.”

Lee Brice is the only artist with two entries in the Top 10: “I Hope You’re Happy Now” with Carly Pearce and his solo release, “One Of Them Girls.”
