John Mayer’s “In the Blood” Cracks Billboard Country Airplay Chart [Listen]

On April 14, seven-time Grammy winner John Mayer dropped his seventh studio album, The Search for Everything. The 12-song offering debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Americana/Folk chart and No. 2 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart, selling 132,000 units in its first week, according to Nielsen Music.

When the album’s “In the Blood” began garnering unsolicited airplay on country radio, John’s label—Columbia Records—decided to officially release the single. After one week, “In the Blood” reached No. 59 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart, marking the first time John has cracked a country chart. The new tune, which John penned, features background vocals from Sheryl Crow, although she’s not officially credited.
