Country Music Capital Top 20 of 2019

Here we are at the tail end of a very interesting year in Australian country music and our Country Music Capital Top 20 of 2019 certainly reflects the variety and breadth of the genre.

All the songs on the top 20 for the year reached the pinnacle of the chart – some for only one week, some for more – and all charted for many, many weeks.

Jon Wolfe, who compiles the weekly chart from airplay on 88.9FM and national and regional charts from around Australia, said he had a huge task compiling the end of year chart and it was done with a special algorithm (a points system) and an abacus! Congratulations to all 21 artists on the chart (yes, there was a tie for second place!) and to all the artists who figured on the weekly charts in 2019. May 2020 prove to be another landmark year for Australian country music!
