There's a new No. 1 song on the monthly list of country music's Top 40 songs. In fact, this is the first time this artist has ever topped the chart.

Walker Hayes and "Fancy Like" are everywhere, making it difficult to argue its place on top. The No. 1 Hot Country Songs song is soon going to be an airplay chart-topper as well. Plus, we sort of loves it, so that's good enough.

Carrie Underwood and Jason Aldean slide down a spot, to No. 2, for October's Top 40 Country Songs list. Blake Shelton's new song also debuts high on the list. Did your favorite song make it?

The list of Top 40 country songs of October 2021 is compiled from Billboard chart data, streaming data, sales figures, staff opinion and reader feedback.
