The most played songs of 2021 are likely on this list of the Top 40 Country Songs for April 2021. Luke Combs, Thomas Rhett, Miranda Lambert and Jake Owen are among the stars you can count on to hear all year long.

Rhett's "What's Your Country Song" rises three spots to No. 4 during a month that his new album is set for release. Eric Church also has new music slated for April 2021 — lots of it, actually. The second single from the Heart & Soul trilogy of albums is called "Hell of a View," and you'll find it one tick beneath Rhett, but both of them trail a pair of country newcomers and a hairy country veteran.

Congratulations to Chris Stapleton for being No. 1 on this list of the Top 40 Country Songs. "Starting Over" is at, or nearing, the top of sales, streaming and airplay charts, and it more than passes our critic's test to nab the top spot. Do you agree?
