The Top 40 country songs on the radio for April 2022 is a fascinating mix of pop and traditional, old and new, and soft and driving. Welcome to the future, as Brad Paisley once said.

A true Texan leads this month's list of the best songs on the radio. Cody Johnson's "Til You Can't" is No. 1 for a second straight month, but he's followed by an artist that represents everything he isn't. Walker Hayes' brand of country music is fresh and pop-flavored and filled with snackable hooks. Both songs are near the top of airplay, sales and streaming charts this month — who are we to disagree?

Scroll down to find links for every song on the Top 40 Country Songs list for April 2022. As always, we note the songs with the biggest jumps and any that are a part of important albums coming this month.

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