Country music sensation Eric Church
was TouchTunes' Top Played Artist of the year. "Music industry 'experts' have a multitude of metrics to tell you if a song is working or not, but there's one way to truly know," commented Church. "If a person wants to hear your song on a jukebox while they're kicking back at their favorite bar, you've got something. Proud to have been the soundtrack to a lot of late nights." Other top played artists in 2015 included AC/DC, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan
and Kid Rock.
2015 also saw Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud
" take the title as TouchTunes' Top Played Song. Other top performing songs included Little
Big Town's "Girl Crush," Steve Earle's "Copperhead Road," and Maroon 5's "Sugar."
Though country artists dominated the Charts, it was rock music that reigned supreme as the Top Played Genre of 2015. Queen's "Fat Bottomed Girls
" was the Top Played Rock Song.
