Country music's most successful songs will be celebrated in late May of 2021, and a few singers that have parked themselves at the top of this Top 40 list will be on hand to party.

Gabby Barrett is nominated in more Billboard Music Awards categories (May 23) than any female artist, and she's No. 1 here as well. "The Good Ones" is a radio hit, a streaming hit and a sales hit, and she's become a tremendously popular crossover star. Luke Combs, Dan + Shay and Kane Brown were also nominated, and you'll find their new songs below.

New to this month's list are songs by Kelsea Ballerini and Chris Lane. The list of Top 40 Country Songs of May 2021 is compiled from Billboard chart data, streaming data, sales figures, staff opinion and reader feedback.
