In the 69-year history of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart, “Cruise” by Florida Georgia Line set an all-time record. The song spent an incredible 12 weeks at No. 1. That is a new all-time record for most weeks at number one ‘by a duo’,”Cruise” also claims the ‘longest reign record’ by any act since Buck Owens set it with “Love’s Gonna Live Here” in 1963 to 1964.

Since the earliest recorded form of ‘Hot Country Songs’ as it appeared for the first time was back in 1944. The record-books show that ‘among duos’ these are the total weeks each song spent at the No. 1 slot on the national charts.

1) 12 weeks at No.1 “Cruise,” by Florida Georgia Line (2013)
2) 11 weeks at No.1 “Don’t Let Me Cross Over,” by Carl Butler & Pearl (1962)
3) 8 weeks at No.1 “Wake Up Little Susie,” by the Everly Brothers (1957)
4) 8 weeks at No.1 “I Forgot More Than You’ll Ever Know,” the Davis Sisters (1953)
5) 7 weeks at No.1 “Bye Bye Love,” the Everly Brothers (1957)

“Cruise” was (laying all jokes aside) cruising right along on the charts just fine, until pop/rap crossover artist Nelly, jumped in to “duet” with the Florida Georgia Line boys. That is when the song exploded on the national music scene. “Cruise” is on top in streaming with 3 million streams, according to Nielsen/Billboard.

Now with the addition of Nelly “Cruise” has taken on a life of it’s own. On the Adult Pop Songs chart it continues to climb getting closer to the No. 1 spot.
