Songs from ACM Awards performers land high on the March list of country music's Top 40 songs. Chris Young is the most nominated artist, so it shouldn't be a surprise that his latest single took a big leap.

"At the End of a Bar" with Mitchell Tenpenny jumps 18 spots this month, a few more than Dierks Bentley's biggest collaboration in years. Half of the Top 20 songs on this list are duets — these one-off pairings seem to be officially replacing groups and trios in country music. There are just three of those in the Top 40.

Who's No. 1 this month? The decision was easy, as one singer starts the month with the No. 1 streaming and digital sales song. Plus, it's a song our critics can't stop talking about. Scroll down to find out who it is, and click any link to hear the song.

The list of Top 40 country songs of March 2022 is compiled from Billboard chart data, streaming data, sales figures, staff opinion and reader feedback.
